Egner EU sig stadig til sit formal i sin nuværende form? På grund af de mange udfordringer EU står over for har Europa-Parlamentet set nærmere på, hvad der skal til for at forbedre EU. Den 16. februar vedtog MEPerne tre rapporter, der fremviser, hvordan EU skal reformeres for at øge EUs handlingskapacitet, genvinde folks tillid og gøre økonomien mere modstandsdygtig.

Ifølge medlemmer af Parlamentets Palæstina-delegation er det et kritisk tidspunkt for levedygtigheden af en to-statsløsning, og derfor må EU og medlemslandene anerkende Palæstina som en selvstændig stat. Den. 20.-24. februar besøger en delegation på fem MEPer, anført af udvalgsformand Neoklis Sylikiotis, Jerusalem og Vestbredden. I en plenardebat 14. februar diskuterede MEPerne Israels regerings seneste beslutning om at legalisere ulovlige bosættelser i Palæstina med tilbagevirkende kraft.

Selvom de er hurtige og effektive til at få planter til at gro, indeholder kemiske pesticider potentielle risici for menneskers og dyrs sundhed såvel som for miljøet. Omkring 45% af det mad, vi spiser, indeholder rester fra pesticider (over den tilladte grænse på 1,6%), ifølge det Europæiske Fødevareagentur (EFSA). Europa-Parlamentet ønsker, at flere naturlige pesticider kommer i brug og en simplificering af deres godkendelsesproces. (Læs mere: Parlamentet skubber på for mere brug af naturlige pesticider )

 

I sidste uge stemte MEPerne EUs handelsaftale med Canada, CETA, igennem. Aftalen, der kan træde i kraft allerede i april, vil fjerne over 99% af afgifterne på import og eksport. Vi har talt med Parlamentets ordfører for aftalen, Artis Pabriks (EPP, Letland), som anser aftalen for at være ”af højeste standard for fremtidige aftaler.” (Læs mere: MEP Pabriks: CETA er lige så vigtig geopolitisk som økonomisk )

Keder du dig i din vinterferie? Så brug tiden i selskab med vores vinterquiz og find ud af, hvor godt kender du Europa. Ud fra vores vinterbilleder skal du gætte hvilken hovedstad, du befinder dig i. (Læs mere: Vinter-quiz om europæiske hovedstæder )

 

Parlamentet godkendte EUs handelsaftale med Canada, CETA, og en dag senere talte Canadas premierminister Justin Trudeau til MEPerne i Strasbourg og forklarede, hvorfor CETA ikke bare handler om handler, men også forbedrer folks liv. Parlamentet fik også besøg af Østrigs nyvalgte præsident Alexander Van der Bellen og stemte for nye regler, der skal bekæmpe terror. (Læs mere: Plenaret i denne uge: CETA, Trudeau og en strategi for EU )

 

Der er behov for EU-regler om robotteknologi, som er et område i hastig udvikling, f.eks. til at håndhæve etiske standarder eller fastslå, hvem der har ansvaret for en ulykke med en førerløs bil, siger MEPerne i en resolution vedtaget torsdag. (Læs mere: Robotter og kunstig intelligens: MEPerne opfordrer til EU-regler )

 

EU-borgere, der er blevet radikaliserede og rejser til Syrien eller Irak for at kæmpe, udgør en stigende trussel. De fleste af de seneste terrorangreb i Europa blev udført af indenlandske terrorister, og en del af dem viste sig at være hjemvendte krigere. Parlamentet godkendte 16. februar nye regler, der kriminaliserer forberedelse af terrorisme og siger god for mere effektiv kontrol ved de ydre grænser. (Læs mere: Terrorisme: MEPerne vedtager nye tiltag mod "foreign fighters" )

 

Hvis EU skal øge sin evne til at handle, genskabe borgernes tillid og gøre euroområdets økonomi mere modstandsdygtig over for eksterne chok, vil unionen skulle udnytte mulighederne i Lissabontraktaten fuldt ud. Men for at gå videre, vil EU skulle reformere sig selv mere grundlæggende. Sådan lyder det centrale budskab i tre resolutioner om den fremtidige udvikling af EU vedtaget af Europa-Parlamentet torsdag. (Læs mere: Parlamentet fremlægger sin vision for Europas fremtid )

 

Alle EU-borgere og tredjelandsstatsborgere, der ankommer til eller forlader EU vil systematisk blive kontrolleret i relevante databaser, f.eks. over tabte eller stjålne dokumenter, ifølge en ny EU- forordning vedtaget af Europa-Parlamentet torsdag. (Læs mere: Foreign fighters skal stoppes ved EUs ydre grænser )
