This chapter is concerned with the rights and duties of the European Union and the United Nations in international law in the related areas of peace and security, human rights, and democracy, as well as the legal relationship between the two bodies. It identifies the underlying principles governing the organisations and their activities. It also argues that there are fundamental legal principles underlying the function of collective security in the international community that have to be recognised and reinforced if we are to have organisational activity that is not just simply discretionary or arbitrary.

Keywords:   European Union, United Nations, security, human rights, democracy
