Committee guide, EU-Russia-Ukraine, Israel-Gaza, Islamic State and more...

Elmar Brok, chair of parliament's foreign affairs committee, kicks off our committee guide, explaining how the EU can rise to international challenges. Brok argues that "the strength of the EU lies in the potential to mobilise resources across the full range of diplomatic, security, defense, economic, trade, development and humanitarian instruments." Elena Valenciano, chair of the parliament's human rights subcommittee, explains why DROI is working to 'mainstream' human rights in all policy. Valenciano says "DROI is a powerful amplifier for the voice of those most vulnerable who suffer attacks on their fundamental rights and freedoms all over the world."
