New Policy Brief on EU Human Rights Policy available

Halfway through the FRAME project, we are glad to share FRAME’s second Policy Brief with you. The first Policy Brief, published in October 2014, summarised the initial nine FRAME reports. FRAME has now entered a more evaluative phase. This Policy Brief provides a snapshot of the latest research and offers recommendations by reference to the principles and strategic areas of action in the Action Plan. In the review period, many new reports have been published, several expert workshops have been convened and highly topical working papers, policy briefs and blog posts have been produced.

This Policy Brief identifies five cross-cutting issues which mirror the strategic areas identified by the new Action Plan on Human Rights and Democratisation (2015-2019). These are:

1.        Strengthening human rights engagement and empowering local actors;
2.        Targeting the most urgent human rights challenges;
3.        Ensuring a comprehensive human rights approach to conflicts and crises;
4.        Fostering better coherence and consistency;
5.        Deepening the effectiveness and results culture in human rights and democracy.
