EU Human Rights Guidelines
There are eight human rights guidelines representing EU priorities under its human rights policy.
The EU guidelines are not legally binding, but because they have all been adopted at ministerial level, the guidelines represent a strong political signal that these are priorities for the Union. The Guidelines are pragmatic instruments of the EU Human Rights policy. These guidelines are practical tools to help EU representations in the field better advance our Human Rights policy.
