  • Great news! This result is a significant blow to the Government’s “hostile environment” - a welcome reminder that the Home Office is, in fact, accountable to the law. See my full statement on the ruling here:

  • "The British Government cannot flip-flop on this, deciding from one day to the next whether the plan to avoid a hard border is a certainty or up for debate. There is too much at stake for people of the region, and acting in such a manner further diminishes its reputation as a trusted partner to the EU." My piece for Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung European Union's blog.

  • Last night, MEPs debated a new report from the European Commission marking the 25th anniversary of the concept of EU citizenship, as enshrined in the Maastricht Treaty in 1992. The ultimate goal of these policies is for all citizens to feel at home wherever they are in the EU. Unfortunately, this isn't the case for millions of people affected by Brexit 👇

  • My colleague Molly Scott Cato MEP has applied for judicial review over the Government's refusal to release its secret studies. It’s time for Davis to put away his box of tricks and explain himself in front of a High Court judge.

  • Last week, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights launched a new report, based on a survey of 25,000 people with ethnic minority of immigrant backgrounds across all 28 EU Member States. The results are shocking. ❌ 90% of hate-motivated harassment is not reported. ❌ 38% of respondents were discriminated against over the last five years. ❌ 31% of second-generation immigrant respondents experienced hate-motivated harassment in the last year. This is simply unacceptable. As I told the high-level conference, it's time to properly fund our equalities bodies, and encourage responsible reporting of these critical issues by the media. You can read the report in full here:

  • The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted 69 years ago today. Yet, across the globe, human rights continue to be chipped away and come under attack. This Human Rights Day, I pledge to continue to speak out against hatred and stand up for equality. Who's with me? ✊
