In April 2014, the European Parliament requested the European Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) to conduct research on the protection of fundamental rights in the context of large-scale surveillance. It should particularly look into the remedies available to individuals in relation to surveillance practices.
In October 2017, FRA will publish a report combining its analysis of what laws exist and how they translate into practice. It will also provide opinions on possible ways forward to better safeguard fundamental rights.
