Description - Foreign Policy of the European Union

In 1993 the European Union created the Foreign and Security Policy.

The European Parliament oversees the EU Foreign Policy through the European External Action Service.

The objectives of the EU Foreign Policy are:

  1. Peace Preservation
  2. Strengthening the international security
  3. Promoting the international cooperation
  4. Fostering the rule of law, human rights and democracy

Since the crisis of 2008, the European Union has promoted free trade agreements and association agreements with the third countries seeking, among other things, to reduce trade barriers faced by many European exporters.
