On the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists, the European Union commends the work of journalists in uncovering abuses of power, shining a light on corruption and human right violations, and questioning received opinion, often putting themselves at risk of intimidation, violence and death. An independent and free media is the basis of a participatory and pluralist democracy, and a tool to make governments accountable for their actions.

The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates of the State of Palestine, together with the European Union and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, today launched a project which aims at making the rights contained in the human rights treaties acceded by the State of Palestine in 2014 a reality for all Palestinians. The commitments under these treaties complement and enhance the Government’s political obligations within the National Policy Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.
Today, the EU Representative Ralph Tarraf visited Gaza. He inaugurated EU-funded projects, visited an UNRWA school, and met with Palestinian officials.
