FRAME Fostering Human Rights Among European Policies


Work Package 8

a) Name

WP8: Coherence among EU Institutions and Member States

b) Short description / objectives

The aims of WP8 are:
    • To analyse questions of coherence of the EU’s internal and external policies in the field of human rights across different policy fields such as the CFSP, the CSDP, development policy, commercial policy, migration and asylum, AFSJ and counterterrorism;
    • To examine vertical coherence between EU policies and the diverse policies of Member States and horizontal coherence between EU institutions in order to provide a holistic and critical assessment of the EU’s human rights policy and solutions of international relevance for incoherence problems;
    • To examine in what policy fields incoherent policy performance occurs and how institutionalisation and reform of the EU’s human rights policy can contribute to a more consistent and coherent policy.
