Human rights in non-EU countries

Beyond its own territory, the European Union (EU) promotes respect for democracy, the rule of law and human rights as a fundamental element of its bilateral and multilateral external relations. Its foreign policy instruments (agreements, dialogues, etc.) and financial assistance help strengthen democracy and human rights in the world. Respect for human rights is also one of the preconditions for any candidate country’s accession to the EU.
The EU’s external action in human rights matters has its legal basis in the Treaties and particularly in the Charter of Fundamental Rights.
