The article deals with the relations between Pakistan and the European Union. The author points out that the EU has to make sure that Pakistan‘s political establishment and law enforcement agencies do more than merely paying lip service to democratic values and human rights. Furthermore, Europe needs to monitor the implementation of international commitments. It is important for the decision-makers in the EU to demonstrate the political will to implement the opportunities given by GSP Plus to them, and to show that withdrawal of the benefits in case of non compliance with the prerequisites remains a able option.
