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.

On the occasion of the International Day of Democracy, the European Union reaffirms its commitment towards democracy as a fundamental right of every human being. Every woman and every man has to be free to participate to the political, economic and social life of her or his country. No one should fear to speak up, to demonstrate peacefully, to go to vote or to expect fair and inclusive policies from a government. Democracy can only function if participation and trust between democratic state institutions, governments and citizens are guaranteed.

The European Union and the Government of Liberia are seeking multimedia journalists from Liberia and from the European Union Member States for its "Young Media Professionals Awareness Campaign” program, about the EU-Liberia Partnership. The program is a 30-day initiative in which eight selected young media members will travel across Liberia and report about the development issues related to five EU programs in Liberia. The campaign is a key initiative developed under the 11th European Development Fund to increase the visibility of the EU’s work in Liberia. The campaign will focus on demonstrating the EU's support to civil society, technical and vocational education and training, the agriculture and forestry sectors as well as the budget support for the Government of Liberia.
