Europe in the World

EU Foreign Policy and Global Governance Forum

The EEAS and human rights - Workshop

6 May 2011

This workshop addressed the potential capacity of the EEAS to improve a human rights-based foreign policy. The discussion focused on the ways in which human rights can be incorporated in all aspects of external policy and pursued through different tools and levels of engagement, what happens when human rights cut across other, more concrete interests, and whether the EEAS has the right guidance, structure and tools to make a difference to EU policies.
