European Union External Action


EU Human Rights

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights the EU Delegation to the UN in Geneva organized a screening of the movie "Rafiki", which was financially supported by the EU ACP Programme. Stavros Lambrinidis, EU Special Representative for Human Rights, attended the screening and took part in a public debate following the screening.

From 18 June to 6 July 2018 the 38th session of the Human Rights Council (HRC38) took place in Geneva, aiming to bring attention to the world's most pressing human rights issues.

On 25 June the EU Delegation jointly organised with the Permanent Mission of Ireland, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) and UN Women a discussion on challenges faced by civil society organisations, with participation also from OHCHR and the International Service for Human Rights.
