Abstract: One of the distinctive aspects of the current EU -beyond its conception as an economic organization- is the protection and promotion of human rights in its external action. In application of the mandate established in the TEU, in its relations with the rest of the world, the Union contributes to the protection of human rights, as well as the respect and development of international law through the execution of common policies. The Strategic Framework on Human Rights and Democracy establishes the principles that provide for the integration of human rights in all policies of the Union. The common commercial policy is one of the axes of this action, in particular through two instruments: the clause on human rights and democracy -incorporated in trade agreements- and the Generalised system of preferences -granted to developing countries-. The basis of these instruments is conditionality, majoritarian positive, aimed at gaining the confidence of third countries and incorporating them into trade to improve their economies. Even so, these instruments suffer from certain technical-legal and political problems, which may hinder the transparent and non-arbitrary action of the Union with respect to the protection of human rights.
