Have you obtained a short-stay ‘Schengen’ visa over the past 5 years, or would you like to make your voice heard on how these visas are issued? The European Commission (hereinafter the 'Commission') is reviewing the procedures for issuing 'Schengen' visas and would like to hear your views on them. The idea is to modernise the current visa policy and your input via this public consultation will help us to make the right changes.

Consultation period will be 24 November 2017 - 2 February 2018

Statement by the Spokesperson on the situation in Ethiopia


The European Union Delegation to Ethiopia celebrated the International Human Rights Day on Wednesday 13 December 2017 at the Addis Ababa University (AAU).  The event was organised in collaboration with the Office of External Relations, Partnerships and Communications, and the College Of Law and Governance Studies of the AAU.

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.

Additional EU assistance of €15 million will help scale up the response to surging humanitarian needs in the drought-stricken country.
