The European Union is committed to supporting democracy and human rights in its external relations, in accordance with its founding principles of liberty, democracy and respect for human rights, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law. The EU seeks to mainstream human rights concerns in all its policies and programmes, and it has different human rights policy instruments for specific actions — including financing specific projects through the EU financing instruments.
