The EU Special Representative for Human Rights, Stavros Lambrinidis, will discuss the EU role and diplomacy for the advancement and promotion of human rights around the world. From Russia to China, Egypt, and Burma, and from freedom of expression and religion to the support for Human Rights Defenders, embattled NGOs and LGBTI persons, EU Human Rights diplomacy seeks to respond to the rising global challenges.
