EU development aid for conflict, peace and security by sectors (2014-2016)

In the EU budget, the main programme aimed at promoting democracy is the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR). In financial terms, it remains the smallest EU external financing instrument, with €1.33 billion over the 2014-2020 period. Around a quarter of its funds are reserved for election assistance, especially for funding EU election observation missions; the rest are dedicated mainly to financing civil society organisations and helping human rights defenders at risk. The European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI) focuses on promoting human rights and the rule of law, establishing deep and sustainable democracy and developing a thriving civil society. Its total in the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) amounts to €15.43 billion. The Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI), endowed with a financial envelope of €19.66 billion over the current MFF, is the main financial instrument in the EU budget for funding aid to developing countries. Its geographical programmes, to which almost two thirds of its budget are dedicated, must spend at least 15 % of their allocated funds on human rights, democracy and good governance.
