On Monday 16 October 2017 the Council adopted the EU Annual Report on Human Rights And Democracy in the World in 2016.
2016 was a challenging year for human rights and democracy, with a shrinking space for civil society and complex humanitarian and political crises emerging. In this context, the European Union showed leadership and remained strongly committed to promote and protect human rights and democracy across the world.
Education unlocks the potential of young minds, and helps new generations realise their dreams for the future. However, we are facing a global education crisis. Millions of children are out of school, or in school but not learning. We must put education at the top of the agenda.

Un enfant sur 10 présente un handicap. Les conflits armés et les catastrophes intensifient davantage les handicaps chez les enfants. Dans toute communauté affectée par une crise, les enfants et adultes handicapés font partie des plus marginalisés, et pourtant ils sont souvent exclus de l’aide humanitaire.
Les Principaux engagements en faveur des enfants dans l’action humanitaire constituent un cadre de travail destiné à fournir une aide humanitaire à tous les enfants, quelque soit leur statut ou leur situation.
One in every 10 children has a disability. Armed conflict and disasters further increase disabilities among children. Within any crisis-affected community, children and adults with disabilities are among the most marginalized, yet they often are excluded from humanitarian assistance.
The international border between Pakistan and Afghanistan spans 2,430 km (1,510 miles). On the Pakistan side, the border touches the provinces/regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) and Balochistan. Throughout its history, the border has remained very porous, as populations in both countries share historical and cultural heritage, with cross-border movements taking place on a regular basis.
70 YEARS AND COUNTING
Seven decades ago, the world was recovering from a devastating world war. For millions of child survivors of that war, peace still encompassed a landscape of significant challenges and damaged futures. UNICEF was created to help those children – no matter who they were, no matter where they were from. The only thing that mattered for the nascent organization was achieving results for children in need.
Two million Australian dollars to support crucial reproductive health care and address violence against women among internally displaced people and returning migrants
Kabul 20 June 2017 - The Government of Australia has stepped up its long-running support for the crucial work the United Nations Population Fund, UNFPA, does in Afghanistan with a pledge of two million Australian dollars for emergency reproductive health care and supplies along with services to tackle violence against women among internally displaced people and returning migrants.
Today on World Refugee Day I announce that the Australian Government will provide humanitarian assistance to support Afghan refugees in Pakistan, people returning to Afghanistan from neighbouring countries, and Afghan people who have been displaced by conflict.
The United Nations estimates over 3.3 million Afghan people are currently displaced across Afghanistan and Pakistan. Additionally, since January 2016 over 1.1 million people have returned to Afghanistan from neighbouring countries. Many returnees are in urgent need of assistance with resettlement and reintegration.
Between January and April 2017, frequent movements of the refugee and migrant population continued to be a challenge for children's access to formal and non-formal education. The population in temporary accommodation sites dropped from 51% to 34%, and the population residing in hotels and apartments increased from 36% to 57%. Accordingly, attendance fructuated, and there was a lack of coordination to ensure the continuity of education activities for those who moved to new sites and apartment schemes.
- This position paper clarifies the position and modalities for provision of humanitarian assistance to Pakistani returnees – who fled to Afghanistan (Khost, Paktika) following the military operation in North Waziristan which occurred between June 2014 and February 2016 - and focuses on conditions in areas of return as the Government of Pakistan (GoP) is leading the return process.
