ISCH COST Action A28
Human Rights, Peace and Security in EU Foreign Policy

The main objective of the Action is to increase and deepen knowledge on the functioning of national and international instruments devised to pursue human rights, peace and security objectives in order to recommend modifi cations of the foreign policy of the European Union. An international network will be created consisting of European human rights institutes, several of which co-operate as the Association of Human Rights Institutes (AHRI), established in 2000. Some AHRI-institutes are leading research centres in the fi eld of human rights studies, nationally and internationally. Their multidisciplinary study of human rights issues from juridical, social-scientifi c as well as normative and historical perspectives, adds value to the quality and completeness of the implementation of this Action.
