The theme of the 2018 Fundamental Rights Forum of the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights is 'Belonging'. It will focus on strengthening the ties that bind everyone in the EU to the societies they live in. Building on the basic need for people to feel safe, secure and belong to a wider community. The event is expected to bring together over 400 participants from human rights communities, the arts, business, international, national and local organisations to discuss new perspectives to pressing human rights issues and strategies.
