The European Union and its Member States have progressively put in place a comprehensive external migration policy and strengthened the work along the Central Mediterranean route. Saving and protecting the lives of migrants and refugees, breaking the business model of smugglers and traffickers and providing legal pathways, while addressing the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement: these are the aims at the very heart of the EU's policy.

Ethiopia is the second-most populous country in Africa with a population of 87 million. In just over 20 years Ethiopia has reduced the prevalence of stunting (chronic under nutrition) in children less than five years of age from 67% to 40%. This has been a major contributing factor to Ethiopia’s impressive performance in reducing child mortality. However, even if this trend continues, Ethiopia will still fall short of its own commitment to reduce stunting to 20% by 2020 and 0% by 2030.
The European Union with the 20 EU Member States plus Norway (EU+) share a long-term vision for supporting Ethiopia’s development. In preparation for the joint programming of their development cooperation, the EU+ partners agreed to launch a pilot joint action in a priority sector of common interest. The theme of nutrition was selected as the pilot joint action to test the feasibility of joint, collaborative programming for enabling coordination, coherency and complementary of their interventions.

The Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia is a recognition to a man of courage and to a generation of Africans working for change and reconciliation. His leadership in establishing a dialogue between Ethiopia and Eritrea is giving hope not only to two countries, but to the whole region and to an entire continent. He has shown that while the path to reconciliation can be long and difficult, peace is always possible, even after decades of conflict.

L'Union européenne (UE) et le Conseil de l'Europe s'opposent fermement au recours à la peine de mort en tous temps et en toutes circonstances. La peine de mort est un châtiment cruel, inhumain et dégradant et est contraire au droit à la vie. Elle ne représente pas la justice, mais une vengeance, et son abolition contribue au renforcement de la dignité humaine.

Die Europäische Union (EU) und der Europarat lehnen die Todesstrafe in jedem Fall und unter allen Umständen strikt ab. Die Todesstrafe ist eine grausame, unmenschliche und erniedrigende Bestrafung und läuft dem Recht auf Leben zuwider. Die Todesstrafe bedeutet Rache und nicht Gerechtigkeit, und ihre Abschaffung trägt zur Achtung der Menschenwürde bei.
