EU at the UN

The EU's commitment to effective multilateralism, with the UN at its core, is a central element of its external action. As a UN observer with enhanced status, the EU delegation coordinates with its 28 Member States to speak with one voice. The EU also works closely with the UN secretariat and its agencies, funds & programmes, partnering on a range of global issues and challenges.

Joint Statement on the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation

In the European Union, we are dedicating 2017 to combatting all forms of violence against women, included Female Genital Mutilation. Women and girls must be protected from the violence and the pain inflicted by this practice. Teachers, doctors, nurses, police officers, lawyers, judges, or asylum officers, are key to this aim. The EU will now support these professionals in this task of detecting girls that could be at risk of becoming victims of Female Genital Mutilation by offering an EU-wide web platform.

EU priorities at the United Nations and the 72nd United Nations General Assembly

The key EU priority will be to uphold, strengthen and reform the UN and the rules based global order. For the 72nd UNGA, the EU will focus on a stronger global governance, on peace and conflict prevention and on an enduring agenda for transformation. Gender equality and women’s empowerment as well as women, peace and security will be mainstreamed into all three priority areas.

EU Statement – United Nations Security Council: the Situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian Question

The European Union is stepping up its efforts to provide a political horizon for solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

We want to contribute to rekindling hope and to resuming constructive engagement by all and with all towards a genuine peace process, because we believe that confrontation and lack of hope will only increase despair, strengthen radical forces and weaken forces of moderation and wisdom.
