Launch of Social Platform position on an EU internal strategy to promote human rights
Social Platform has adopted its position on an EU internal strategy to promote human rights.
Human rights are underlying values of the European Union, and accordingly the EU must be held accountable for their respect. We want the EU to go beyond respecting and protecting human rights, and take a proactive role to ensure the realisation of those rights.
Our three key messages are:
- In all areas of competence, enact legislation and policies that ensure effective realisation of human rights across the EU, including social rights.
- Identify and utilise EU competencies to maximum effect.
- Support member states in preventing human rights violations, monitor compliance and issue sanctions when necessary.
