The EU must promote peace, democracy, sustainability and human rights beyond its borders through its political and business dealings. It must end the injustice of its biased development policies and make trade a good deal for all. And it must be influential in areas of conflict on its doorstep or in the wider world.
Conflict often results from violation of basic rights and lack of access to resources. The Greens/EFA want an effective foreign policy that precludes the need for military intervention.
