The School of Politics and International Relations, University College Dublin invites you to the FP7 FRAME workshop: ‘Agents of Coherence in EU Human Rights Policies’ on September 13, 2016 at the Wood Quay Venue, Dublin City Council Buildings, Dublin, Ireland.

In our workshop, representative members of EU institutions, the Member States and civil society will intervene about their experience of EU institutions and their potential role in fostering coherence or risking incoherence in EU human rights policies. In particular we will be looking at the various ways incoherence arises, whether through conflicting structures, policies or interests and whether it involves conflicting internal policies of the European Union, internal and external policies or different external policies.
