Abstract
On the basis of a recently published Study on ‘Homophobia and Discrimination on Grounds of Sexual Orientation in the EU Member States’, this paper discusses the way in which FRALEX, a group of independent experts on Fundamental Rights, provides ‘expertise’ to the newly established EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) in Vienna. In addition to examining the Study itself, the paper informs about the close links existing between FRALEX, the (now defunct) ‘EU Network of Independent Experts on Fundamental Rights’, and certain radical lobby groups. http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/content~db=all~content=a930666426~frm=titlelink Note: This article has been published by the International Journal of Human Rights as part of a debate.
