Virtual Eat&Meet on Fundamental Rights and COVID-19 with Dr. Henri Nickels

May 13 at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

We are excited to announce a Virtual Eat&Meet with Dr. Henri Nickels. Together with current and former Fulbrighters, we will host a Google Hangout session on Fundamental Rights and COVID-19! The outbreak of COVID-19 affects people’s daily life in the 27 EU Member States.

Henri Nickels’ areas of expertise with respect to the FRA’s work include equality and non-discrimination; racism, xenophobia,…
