Diplomatic and Political relations

In 1948, after the devastating Second World War, which brought painful divisions in Europe and occupation for many European countries, the international community committed to define, promote and protect human rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights that we celebrate on 10 December has enshrined these shared principles and has had a profound influence on the development of the world. But still, almost seventy years on, we are far from the full respect of these commitments all over the world, and we recognize that all states must do more in this respect.

The European Union has today presented the Australian Human Rights Commission's "Racism. It stops with me" award to the Cohealth Arts Generator Sisters and Brothers Program from Victoria while also using the occasion to call for greater cooperation between the EU and Australia on human rights issues such as abolishing the death penalty.
