The Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) [1] has a range of tools that can be used to promote human rights and democratisation:

• Common Strategies, common positions and joint actions

• Démarches and declarations

• Dialogue and consultations with third countries

• Guidelines on towards third countries on specific human rights themes

The Policy has developed gradually over many years, enables the EU to speak and act as one in world affairs.
Acting together gives the EU's 28 members far greater clout than they would have if each pursued its own policies.
