Dr. Réka Varga, Secretary General of the Office of the Commissioner for Fundamental Rights of Hungary became a member of the Management Board of the EU's Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA). The Vienna-based agency was established in 2007. It is the independent centre of reference and excellence for promoting and protecting human rights in the EU and provides independent, evidence-based advice to EU and national decision makers, thereby helping to make debates, policies and legislation on fundamental rights better informed and targeted.

FRA helps safeguard the rights, values and freedoms enshrined in the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights. It advises its partners on fundamental rights, particularly in the areas of discrimination, access to justice, racism & xenophobia, data protection, victims’ rights and children's rights. The Agency is headed by a Director and guided by three bodies: the Management Board (which defines work priorities, approves the budget and monitors FRA’s work), the Executive Board (which prepares Management Board decisions) and the Scientific Committee (which guarantee that FRA's work meets high scientific standards).
