EU at the UN

The EU's commitment to effective multilateralism, with the UN at its core, is a central element of its external action. As a UN observer with enhanced status, the EU delegation coordinates with its 28 Member States to speak with one voice. The EU also works closely with the UN secretariat and its agencies, funds & programmes, partnering on a range of global issues and challenges.

20 September 2016, Brussels – The Council of the European Union adopted the “country and regional issues” part of the EU annual report on human rights and democracy in the world in 2015 which complements the thematic part of the report published on 20 June 2016. 

In 2015, the EU continued defending and promoting human rights, inclusive and democratic societies. The 2015 annual report sets out the efforts of the EU, through the High Representative Federica Mogherini, the EU Special Representative for Human Rights, Stavros Lambrinidis and the EU global network of delegations, to promote the universality of human rights across the world. The “country and regional issues” section of the report provides a short overview of the human rights situation and covers EU policy support on the ground on a country by country basis.
