Declaration by the former High Representative Federica Mogherini on behalf of the European Union on Human Rights Day, 10 December 2016

On 10 December, the European Union and its Member States celebrate Human Rights Day. As inequality and violations of human rights pose increasing challenges across the world, and conflict continues in countries such as Syria, it is all the more important that we redouble our efforts to defend the rights of all people. This is why this year we join the United Nations in calling upon people to stand up for someone's rights.

The European Union Delegation to Australia has today sponsored the "Racism. It Stops With Me Award" at the Australian Human Rights Commission's Human Rights Awards held in Sydney.
