Global Justice and Stability
The EU’s external policies, strategies, instruments and missions have four key aims: To support stability, to promote human rights and democracy, to promote prosperity, and to support the enforcement of the rule of law and good governance.
Social Sciences and Humanities research projects contribute to the evidence base and sound understanding of the external environment that the EU operates in. Current research projects assess the root causes of instability and the connections between security and democracy as well as gender equality, social values and economic conditions in the wider European neighbourhood, as well as, the internal and external dimension of EU human rights policy.
