In April, the European Ombudsman submitted a contribution to the European Commission's consultation on the role of national human rights institutions, ombudsman institutions and equality bodies in making the Charter of Fundamental Rights a reality in people's lives.
The consultation was organised in the context of the Commission's preparation of its new strategy on the Charter.
