This international conference aims to discuss the findings of the FRAME project regarding the impacts of EU trade and development policies on human rights. The EU is the most powerful trading bloc on the planet, and, together with its 28 Member States, the largest development donor in the world. These policies, if benchmarked against human rights, therefore have the potential to be a major lever for human rights. This conference will assess whether this has been the case by examining and assessing the EU trade and development policies, instruments and practices in this light.
