L’Unione Europea: attore ‘globale’ nella protezione e promozione dei diritti umani? Limiti e prospettive

The EU as a Global Human Rights Actor? Limits and Perspectives

  • Leonardo Borlini

Abstract

The EU is increasingly perceived as a ‘normative power’, where human rights own a primary position. At the same time, despite its current problems, the role, models and identity of the EU as a global actor are steadily among the most investigated subjects of international relations scholars. The present article explores the role of the EU as a global human rights actor by analysing selected aspects of its external action with a view to assessing the main limits and potentials.
