This week we were pleased to carry an exclusive article by Catherine Ashton – ‘The EU’s rights of passage’ - arguing that human rights should lie at the centre of the EU’s foreign policy.
“Global politics will increasingly be shaped by the demands of ordinary people - demands for rights, peace and prosperity - while social media will increasingly carry their message, and allow activists to break free from their isolation, to disseminate ideas and to denounce oppression. These are issues that the EU was founded to address and has sought to support globally. No other power can say as much. Our commitment to human rights does not track the economic cycle.”
