The article tackles the problem of a complex response strategy of the European Union to crisis phenomena on the territory of Africa after 2003 by military and police means, especially to stop mass and serious violations of human rights and to enhance respecting human rights over long periods of time. Military operations of the EU involve foreign policy measures, since the decision-makers (EU member-states) are convinced that only in this way can the political and social situation be stabilized in a given country, enabling the emergence of its internal potential to prevent mass and serious violation of human rights. The article contains a short overview of the operations carried out by the EU and highlights the programmatic-theoretical grounds of the strategy of responding to crisis phenomena in African states.
