The EU foreign policy instruments- financial envelopes for the 2014-2020 MFF

The European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR)
With a budget of €1.33 billion, the EIDHR supports projects in the area of human rights and fundamental freedoms, strengthening the rule of law, and democratisation in third countries.
The European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI)
The ENI’s financial envelope of €15.4 billion funds efforts to cooperate with and promote development in 16 countries and territories on the EU’s eastern and southern frontiers. The aim is to make beneficiary countries more democratic, more prosperous and more stable by incentivising reform and economic integration into the EU market.
The Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP)
The total funds for this instrument are €2.34 billion and they are allocated to countries that have been struck by, or face, crisis. The IcSP also supports conflict prevention and peace-building efforts.
The Partnership Instrument (PI)
The PI finances the external dimension of the EU’s internal policies – in areas such as competitiveness, research and innovation, as well as migration – and helps to address major global challenges such as energy security, climate change and environmental protection. It also contributes to the external projection of the Europe 2020 strategy. The budget for this instrument is €955 million.
The Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA II)
The IPA II is the means by which the EU provides financial and technical assistance to support reform in countries that are candidates for EU accession. The IPA projects build capacity in candidate countries throughout the accession process, resulting in progressive development in the region and economic and political reform. The ultimate objective is the adoption of EU laws and standards (the acquis communautaire). The amount allocated to this instrument for the period 2014-2020 is €11.7 billion.
