The 2016 Fundamental Rights Forum organized by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) brought together more than 100 experts to discuss critical human rights issues facing the European Union and to seek solutions through targeted dialogue. At the forum, held in Vienna from 20 to 23 June, participants explored three crucial topics in human rights: mitigating the continuing refugee crisis; discrimination and exclusion; and violation of privacy and personal data. Rabbi Rosen, member of the International Dialogue Centre’s (KAICIID) Board of Directors, spoke from his expertise on the common space between religious traditions’ understanding and practice of human rights and emphasized the importance of cooperation between religious and secular institutions.
