abstract
The European Union prides itself in having one of the most developed frameworks for protecting human rights abroad, despite a track record that suggests otherwise. It is hypothesized that EU crisis management missions have failed to adequately address human rights in third countries. To best test this hypothesis, European Union primary sources, government documents, and other scholarly articles were analyzed. According to third country reports and human rights watchdog organizations, the EU has failed to uphold their own human rights standards internally and in external policy. Internal inconsistencies raise question about the genuineness of Union human rights concerns abroad, and selective, ineffective crisis management missions/ operations negatively affect the perceived legitimacy of the EU as an adequate human rights protector. The significance of these findings are great: In lieu of a global arena characterized by internal and external insecurities, where the EU has defined the promotion of peace and democracy as their top goals, the Union must be held accountable for inconsistencies and misconduct related to human rights.
