Purpose and scope
Since 2008, the European Union (EU) and its member States have been committed to applying a comprehensive and integrated human rights-based approach in all areas of EU external action, including EU development cooperation. The 2009 Treaty on European Union (Treaty of Lisbon) contains an explicit commitment to protect and promote the rights of the child, and in 2011 the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy announced the promotion of the rights of the child as one of the Union’s three explicit foreign policy priorities.
