The foreign policy of a sovereign state is a complicated decision-making process. Both security and economic interests of the state as well as its long-term values (more likely values of a moral nature) must be taken into account here. The paper deals with the relation between economic and trade policy (representing interests) on the one hand and human rights protection and promotion (representing principles) on the other. Basic conflicts between economic interests and other principles that have to be considered in decision-making are analysed. Furthermore, their role in foreign policy formation is examined. Finally, the paper draws attention to methodical problems of the analysis of the relation between interests and principles.
