FIDH is part of the Human Rights and Democracy Network (HRDN), which publishes its position "A Rights-based Approach to Resilience: HRDN’s input to the EEAS and Commission Joint Communication on Resilience"

HRDN believes that the notion of building state and social resilience, referred to in the EU Global Strategy (2016) should be grounded in a human rights based approach. The idea of resilience (currently defined by the EU as “the ability of an individual, a household, a community, a country or a region to withstand, to adapt, and to quickly recover from stresses and shocks”) should never condone rights violations, even in the most challenging circumstances, or lessen the State’s responsibility to respect, protect and fulfil human rights for all individuals under its jurisdiction.
