ENoP Statement on EU Action Plan on Human Rights and Democracy July 2020

The European Network of Political Foundations (ENoP) welcomes the Joint Communication of the European Commission and High Representative to the Council on the EU Action Plan on Human Rights and Democracy 2020-2024.
 
With the adoption of the Council Conclusions on Democracy in October 2019, the European Union delivered a strong political message about its ambitions for democracy in external relations.
 
We therefore believe that the new EU Action Plan should operationalise these ambitions both by emphasizing democracy and human rights equally in the document and by including the relevant civic and political actors in the process of implementation.
 
Our statement highlights these important issues and provides concrete recommendations to the implementation of the Action Plan.
