Frågan om Syrien och den humanitära krisen har toppat Europaparlamentets agenda på sistone. Över 2,5 miljoner syriska flyktingar befinner sig i Turkiet, och de flesta av den dryga miljonen migranter och flyktingar som nådde EU under år 2015 kom via Turkiet. I januari uppmanade ledamöterna medlemsländer att börja uppfylla sina åtaganden för den 3 miljarder euro stora flyktingmekanismen för Turkiet. Medan EU söker sätt att tackla krisen, besöker två ledamotsdelegationer Turkiet. (Läs mer: Ledamöter besöker Turkiet för att bedöma svaret på flyktingkrisen i Syrien )

 

Debatten om den kommande folkomröstningen i Storbritannien om landets EU-medlemskap dominerade parlamentets första plenarsesison i februari. Migration, Schengens framtid, avtalet om handel med tjänster TiSA och utsläpp från bilar var andra stora frågor på agendan. Läs mer om sessionen, pressmeddelanden, foton och videor. (Läs mer: Höjdpunkter från kammaren: #Brexit eller #UKinEU, migration, skatter m.m. )

 

Handelsavtal, öppenhet, effekter för européerna och för jobben, samt, till och med, migration, tillhörde ämnena som deltagarna lyfte upp under onsdagseftermiddagens chatt med ledamoten Bernd Lange (S&D, Tyskland). Han är ordförande i parlamentets utskott för internationell handel och föredragande för parlamentets ståndpunkt om det transatlantiska partnerskapet för handel och investeringar (TTIP). Under chatten svarade Lange 61 frågor om handelsavtal allmänt, och om specifikt TTIP. (Läs mer: Facebookchatt med Bernd Lange: “Vi behöver rättvis, inte bara fri handel” )

 

MEPs urge the European Commission to take concrete steps to address the permanent handicaps that EU islands face and make full use of their potential, in a resolution voted on Thursday. The text also stresses the unique difficulties that southern insular regions face due to the increased migration flows and asks that special tax regimes should continue.

Pressmeddelande (del 2)
 

På torsdagen uppmanade parlamentet det internationella samfundet att omedelbart vidta åtgärder för att motverka den så kallade Islamiska statens (IS)/Daishs systematiska massmord på religiösa minoriteter. Texten sammanfattar den debatt som parlamentet hade med EU:s utrikeschef Federica Mogherini den 20 januari, då ledamöterna efterlyste åtgärder för att skydda alla religiösa grupper, samt övriga minoritetsgrupper, mot attacker från terrororganisationen. (Läs mer: Religiösa minoriteter måste omedelbart skyddas från IS )

 

EU:s anslutningsförhandlingar med Serbien, samt de steg som har tagits i att försöka normalisera relationen mellan Serbien och Kosovo, välkomnades av kammaren genom två resolutioner som antogs på torsdagen. Texten understryker att dialogen mellan Serbien och Kosovo skulle underlättas om alla EU-länder erkänner Kosovo som land. (Läs mer: Serbien och Kosovo uppmanas fortsätta med sina reformer )

 

Economic disintegration and violence in Libya are worsening its fragility and enabling extremist organisations to flourish there, warned MEPs in Wednesday’s debate with Dutch foreign minister Bert Koenders, representing the EU foreign policy chief. Spillovers from Libya’s conflicts are also destabilising the Sahel region, they add. In a resolution voted on Thursday, MEPs urge the EU and international community to be ready to support Libyans’ efforts to implement the Libyan Political Agreement. (Read more: EU must maintain its aid to Libya, say MEPs )

 

Parliament condemns the unprecedented levels of human rights abuses perpetrated against Crimean Tatars, calls on the Bahrain to grant Mohammed Ramadan a royal pardon or to commute his death sentence, and for the immediate safe release of the five missing book publishers in Hong Kong, in three resolutions voted on Thursday. (Read more: Human rights: Crimean Tatars, Mohammed Ramadan, missing publishers in Hong Kong )

 

I kväll klockan 20.20 debatterar kammaren sexuella trakasserier och våld mot kvinnor på offentliga platser. Parlamentet frågar ut EU-kommissionen och rådet om vilka åtgärder som de planerar för att förhindra könsrelaterat våld mot kvinnor i EU. (Läs mer: Debatt om våld mot kvinnor på offentliga platser )

 

Hur ser Storbritanniens och Nordirlands framtid i Europa ut? Dagen efter att Europeiska rådets ordförande Donald Tusk presenterat förslag som svar på brittiska reformkrav, diskuterade ledamöter frågan under en debatt om det kommande EU-toppmötet den 18-19 februari, vars fokus är dels brittiska folkomröstningen, dels migrationskrisen. De flesta ledamöterna underströk att ett Storbritannien som stannar kvar i EU är bättre för alla parter, men ifrågasatte också många av de föreslagna reformerna. (Läs mer: Storbritannien i EU: Ledamöter debatterar reformer inför folkomröstningen )
