As national contractor for the EU Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA), FRC is currently working on a fieldwork on long-term residents in Belgium.
For this project, FRC will be conducting interviews and focus groups with third-country nationals (non-EU citizens) who have been living in Belgium for at least 5 years and who hold different types of residence permit, such as Belgian unlimited permits (e.g. card B, card C, card F+), EU long-term residence permit (card D) and temporary permits (e.g. card A, card F and card H).
The results of the interviews will be (anonymously) added to a report, which the FRA will share with the European Commission to inform the revision of the 2003/109/EC Directive on long-term residents.
The FRA is particularly (but not exclusively) interested in the experiences of those coming from Morocco, China, DRC and Turkey.
