Ulrike Lunacek is the first openly lesbian Vice-President of the European Parliament. In her work in foreign affairs as well as inside the EU, she focuses on rule of law, human rights, women's rights, and the rights of ethnic and sexual minorities. Before that she has worked as a journalist, interpreter and activist on development, feminist and LGBTI issues, and taught German to refugees. She views the Fundamental Rights Forum as an excellent opportunity to look at current strategies, progress and setbacks on fundamental rights from different walks of life inside the EU - and looks forward to stimulating discussions!
