EU-Fiji relations are based on the respect for human rights, democratic principles, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law – essential elements of the ACP-EU Partnership Agreement.

Following the 2006 military coup and Fiji's violation of these values, the EU suspended its development assistance to Fiji.

Since then, the EU has promoted a return to democracy, the respect for human rights and the rule of law in Fiji via enhanced political dialogue. 

 

Aid

The EU gives aid to Fiji through several different routes:

 

Democracy & elections

The EU is cautiously optimistic about a prospective return to democracy in Fiji, with the 2014 elections and the constitutional consultation process. It is following developments closely.

At the EU's insistence, the regime in Fiji requested a UN electoral needs assessment mission, which took place in mid-April 2012. The findings should provide a basis for EU assistance, in close coordination with international partners. At present, the EU plans to provide €2 million for a phase 2 of the NICE project for Fiji (NICE: national initiative for civic education), with a focus on the 2014 election.
