Le premier Fonds Fiduciaire créé par l’Union européenne - le Fonds Bêkou, est prolongé pour un an, jusqu’à la fin de l’année 2021. Ce Fonds dédié à la résilience de la République centrafricaine a été lancé en 2014 aux lendemains de la crise qui a sévèrement affecté le pays et fait des milliers de victimes. En six ans, il a déjà mobilisé plus de 300 millions d’euros à travers 23 programmes destinés à faciliter l’accès de la population aux services de base, soutenir la relance économique et favoriser la coexistence pacifique et la cohésion sociale.

La Cheffe d’unité a la Direction Générale du développement et de la Coopération internationale et gestionnaire du Fonds Bêkou, Francesca Di Mauro, a présidé ce jour, par visioconférence, le Comité de Gestion du Fonds Bêkou, en présence du ministre de l’Economie, du Plan et de la Coopération, Felix Moloua et l’Ambassadrice de l’Union européenne, Samuela Isopi.

10/12/2020 – HR/VP Blog – At Monday’s Foreign Affairs Council, member states agreed to launch a new EU Global Human Rights Sanctions Regime to strengthen our collective action in this field. Taking action on human rights is not only the right thing to do. It is also in our interest: more human rights means more freedom, prosperity and peace, for us all.

This year we mark Human Rights Day while the whole world is tackling an unprecedented challenge: the COVID-19 pandemic. Far from being outdated, the fundamental rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights signed in 1948 are more relevant than ever: the universality and indivisibility of human rights is critical in addressing this crisis and in shaping the post-COVID-19 world. “Today it is more important than ever to recall that human rights are universal and indivisible, and that our efforts to defend them can never stop”, said the High Representative Josep Borrell in a declaration on behalf of the European Union.

75 years ago, major leaders of the Nazi regime were prosecuted for crimes against humanity and war crimes during the Nuremberg trials. This paved the way to the adoption of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide on 9 December 1948, punishing genocide as a crime and setting out the legal basis for action by States to prevent such atrocities.

The legacy of Nuremberg lives on. Since 2002, the International Criminal Court stands as the world’s only permanent, independent court for the investigation and prosecution of the most heinous crimes.

The Council today adopted a decision and a regulation establishing a global human rights sanctions regime. For the first time, the EU is equipping itself with a framework that will allow it to target individuals, entities and bodies – including state and non-state actors – responsible for, involved in or associated with serious human rights violations and abuses worldwide, no matter where they occurred.
