Looking outwards to the rest of the world

Europe is a major actor on the global stage. The EU aims to lead by example, through its relations with other countries, setting good practice in areas like employment conditions and social solidarity, trade, sustainable development, and environmental protection. Through the REX Section, we monitor the EU’s external relations. We support and develop partnerships with civil society organisations in other countries, especially those where the EU has established a structured dialogue. The section also covers policy on trade and development.
