Van Syrische vluchtelingen op weg naar hervestiging in Europa, tot Palestijnse vluchtelingen die al jaren in kampen wonen: de delegatieleden van de commissie Burgerlijke vrijheden spraken veel verschillende mensen tijdens hun bezoek aan Libanon op 19-22 september. Ze waren daar om de situatie te bekijken voor de toekomstige regels voor hervestiging van vluchtelingen. Ze spraken ook met vertegenwoordigers van lokale NGO's en grote internationale organisaties.

Zodra de Brexit -onderhandelingen van start gaan, zal het EP een verantwoordelijke en actieve partner zijn, liet Voorzitter Martin Schulz de Britse premier Theresa May weten. Schulz ontmoette haar tijdens een bezoek aan Londen op 22-23 september. Hij zei dat de grootste uitdagingen de handel zijn en de kwestie van het behoud van vrij verkeer van goederen, personen, diensten en kapitaal. Hij besprak ook de reden waarom het EP vindt dat artikel 50 zo spoedig mogelijk moet worden geactiveerd. (Lees meer: Schulz bespreekt uitdagingen van de Brexit-onderhandelingen met premier May )

 

The current situation in Europe of Anti-Semitism and future prospects for Europe’s Jewish communities will be debated at a conference hosted by EP President Martin Schulz and First Vice-President Antonio Tajani in Parliament’s premises on Tuesday afternoon. Anti-Semitism and attacks against Jews in Europe have grown in recent years. (Read more: What future for the Jewish communities in Europe? )

 

Members of the Euro-Latin American parliamentary Assembly “expect and hope” that the “historic” peace agreement between the Government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) will be approved in the referendum to be held on 2 October. Once the deal is approved and the definitive and irreversible laying down of weapons is confirmed, they add, the FARC should be removed from the EU’s list of terrorist organisations.

With around 1.5 million refugees fleeing to Lebanon since the start of the war in Syria, it is clear that the situation in the country is untenable and that substantial help is needed to avoid a complete breakdown, not only in terms of financial assistance, but also through improved resettlement tools, says Civil Liberties Committee Chair Claude Moraes, who this week headed a delegation to Beirut. (Read more: MEPs in Lebanon: funding alone not enough, better resettlement tools needed )

 

Werknemers genieten niet hetzelfde niveau van sociale bescherming in de EU. Geconfronteerd met toegenomen concurrentie, nemen sommige bedrijven hun toevlucht tot sociale dumping om hun arbeidskosten te verlagen. Dit kan leiden tot uitbuiting van werknemers. Afgelopen week riepen de leden op tot beëindiging van deze oneerlijke praktijken. Ze spraken verder over maatregelen voor een betere afstemming van werk, privé- en gezinsleven en over een minimuminkomen. (Lees meer: Aanpak sociale dumping: EP-leden pleiten voor eerlijke lonen )

 

Deepening the integration of the EU and Latin America is the best way to respond to common challenges, agreed parliamentarians from both sides of the Atlantic at the opening of the ninth plenary session of the Euro-Latin Parliamentary Assembly (EuroLat), on Tuesday in Montevideo (Uruguay). The economic situation, trade relations between the EU and Latin America and between both regions and China, managing migration flows and fighting terrorism are also on the agenda. (Read more: EuroLat opening: deeper EU-Latin integration needed to tackle common challenges )

 

In de loop van zijn bestaan is het Europees Parlement getransformeerd van een Vergadering met beperkte bevoegdheden tot een besluitvormend orgaan dat direct het EU-beleid vormgeeft. Dit was een lange weg en één van de mijlpalen was 20 september 1976, toen de ministers de akte tekenden voor het toestaan van rechtstreekse Europese verkiezingen. Deze werden ongeveer drie jaar later gehouden en gaven een nieuwe democratische legitimiteit aan het Parelment. (Lees meer: 40 jaar geleden: ondertekening akte voor rechtstreekse Europese verkiezingen )

 

Journalist Can Dündar en medeverdedigers van de vrijheid van denken en meningsuiting in Turkije, de leider van de Krim-Tataren, Mustafa Dzhemilev, de Yezidi overlevenden en verdedigers Nadia Murad Basee en Lamiya Aji Bashar en de Oeigoerse geleerde Ilham Tohti. Dat zijn de genomineerden 2016 voor de Sacharovprijs. Het Parlement reikt de Sacharovprijs elk jaar uit aan uitzonderlijke individuen en organisaties die mensenrechten en grondvrijheden verdedigen. De laureaat wordt 27 oktober gekozen. (Lees meer: Sacharovprijs 2016: genomineerden onthuld )

 

Na een drukke plenaire vergadering in Straatsburg, werken de leden deze week in hun kiesdistrict of nemen zij deel aan parlementaire delegaties. EP-voorzitter Martin Schulz reist naar Londen om de Britse premier Theresa May te ontmoeten. Een delegatie van 7 leden is in Libanon om beter zicht te krijgen op de vluchtelingencrisis. (Lees meer: Deze week: Schulz in Londen, delegatie naar Libanon, uitstoot van auto's )
