I would very much appreciate your guidance in assisting me to understand a glaring inconsistency in the EU's adherence to the basic principle of all being equal before the law, as enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation welcomes international participation unconditionally. No qualifications are stated for eligibility in regard to human rights, democratic government, territorial disputes and the like. Its web site states clearly

"International cooperation will be an important cross-cutting priority of Horizon 2020. In addition to Horizon 2020 being FULLY OPEN TO INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION, targeted actions with key partner countries and regions will focus on the EU’s strategic priorities."
