The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified human rights and democracy challenges in many parts of the world. That is why the EU has placed human rights front and centre of its foreign policy. This is one of the main features of the freshly adopted 2020 European Union Annual Report on Human Rights and Democracy in the World. While the world is confronted with unique challenges, the EU maintains its leading role in supporting human rights, democracy and rule of law, within its borders and across the globe.

La pandemia de COVID-19 ha magnificado los retos de los derechos humanos y la democracia en muchas partes del mundo. Por ello, la UE ha situado los derechos humanos en el centro de su política exterior. Esta es una de las principales características del recién adoptado Informe Anual de la Unión Europea sobre los Derechos Humanos y la Democracia en el Mundo 2020. Mientras el mundo se enfrenta a desafíos únicos, la UE mantiene su papel de liderazgo en el apoyo a los derechos humanos, la democracia y el Estado de Derecho, dentro de sus fronteras y en todo el mundo.

La pandemia di COVID-19 ha esacerbato in molte parti del mondo le sfide in materia di diritti umani e democrazia. Per questo motivo l'UE ha posto in massimo rilievo i diritti umani nella sua politica estera. Questo è uno dei punti salienti della relazione annuale 2020 dell'Unione europea sui diritti umani e la democrazia nel mondo, che è stata appena adottata. Sebbene il mondo si trovi dinanzi a enormi sfide, l'UE continua a svolgere un ruolo guida nel sostenere i diritti umani, la democrazia e lo Stato di diritto, all'interno dei suoi confini e in tutto il mondo.

La pandémie de COVID-19 a amplifié les défis en matière de droits de l’homme et de démocratie dans de nombreuses régions du monde. C’est la raison pour laquelle l’UE a placé les droits de l’homme au centre de sa politique étrangère, ce qui est l’une des principales caractéristiques du rapport annuel de l’Union européenne sur les droits de l’homme et la démocratie dans le monde en 2020, récemment adopté. Alors que le monde est confronté à des défis uniques, l’UE conserve son rôle de premier plan dans le soutien aux droits de l’homme, à la démocratie et à l’état de droit, tant à l’intérieur de ses frontières que dans le monde.

Today we mark World Refugee Day, in the midst of a pandemic that has had a deleterious impact on public health, as well as on the economy. Refugees, internally displaced persons, migrants and stateless persons have felt this crisis most acutely and risk being left behind. This year, as we reflect on World Refugee Day, we must also recall that to win the battle against the pandemic, safe and effective vaccines should be accessible to all across the globe.

To commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the Commission, Josep Borrell, and Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict, Pramila Patten, call for an end to violence in conflict zones and in the private spheres.

Today, the Commission announced €20 million in humanitarian funding to be provided in Algeria, Egypt and Libya. The funding will support the most vulnerable people affected by the region's political and protracted crises; the over four-decade-long Sahrawi refugee crisis in Algeria, the volatile Libyan crisis, and the refugees and asylum seekers in Egypt.

No country, no region in the world has been spared from the impact of COVID-19. The virus is exacerbating existing inequalities and has a disproportionate effect on refugees, internally displaced persons, vulnerable migrants and stateless persons. We must all redouble our efforts. As vaccination campaigns are underway in the EU, the EU is working to ensure universal access to COVID-19 vaccines, in particular through the COVAX Facility.
