On 17 December 2013, the European Parliament adopted the ‘Justice Programme’ and the ‘Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme’ to be the major source of financial support in the field of justice, equality and fundamental rights.
Both programmes shall support the efforts of the European Commission in the field of justice and ensure the enjoyment of fundamental rights by all citizens.
The Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme will promote the enjoyment of the rights derived from the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and enforce gender equality and non-discrimination. Moreover, it shall also help to protect consumer’s right and data protection. The programme replaces its predecessors- Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme, Daphne III Programme and the Progress Programme in the actions on Anti-discrimination and Gender Equality.
