ASEAN – Country Updates on Human Rights and Democracy 2019

 

On 15 June 2020, the Council of the EU approved the 2019 EU annual report on human rights and democracy in the world.

The report marks the final phase of implementation of the EU Action Plan on Human Rights and Democracy (2015-2019) and confirms that in 2019 the EU demonstrated once more its commitment to protect, support and promote human rights and fundamental freedoms worldwide. However, in many parts of the world, challenges remain.

This report focuses on thematic issues, using a number of country-specific examples, and aims to be a practical tool for all stakeholders. Reporting on human rights and democracy at country level can be found on the EEAS and EU delegations’ webpages.
