Welcome to the webpage of the European Parliament’s Subcommittee on Human Rights.

In today’s world where international human rights law is consistently undermined, the European Union remains deeply committed to the protection and promotion of the universality of human rights in its internal and external policies.

The European Parliament and its Subcommittee on Human Rights (DROI) raise awareness on specific human rights situations, engage with a broad range of interlocutors and oversee the respect for human rights in the EU’s external actions, with an added emphasis on ensuring coherence between all the Union’s external policies (e.g. on trade, asylum and migration) and its human rights policy.
