Democracy and Human Rights

The European Union aims at enhancing respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, strengthening the role of civil society in promoting human rights and democratic reform, in supporting the peaceful conciliation of group interests and in consolidating political participation and representation. Also, we support actions in areas such as dialogue on human rights, human rights defenders, torture, children and armed conflicts and violence against women.

In addition, we support and strengthen the international and regional framework for the protection of human rights, justice, the rule of law and the promotion of democracy.
