Europa behöver ett investeringspaket för att övervinna låg tillväxt och hög arbetslöshet. Det underströk parlamentets talman Martin Schulz på Europeiska rådets möte den 23 oktober. "Vår ekonomi saktar ned, vilket är en tydlig varning som vi måste svara på", sade Schulz, och pekade på att investeringsnivåerna fortfarande är lägre än de var innan krisen. (Läs mer: Talman Schulz: "Vi måste stimulera ekonomin och trygga våra barns framtid" )

 

På torsdagen godkände parlamentet ett system som ger ukrainska exportörer en till i stora delar tullfri tillgång till EU:s inre marknad fram till slutet av år 2015. (Läs mer: Parlamentet förlänger Ukrainas tullfria tillgång till EU:s inre marknad )

 

Parliament passed three resolutions on Thursday, calling on the Russian authorities not to close down the Memorial civil rights NGO; urging the Uzbek authorities to take immediate action to protect human rights; and calling for the immediate arrest of all those responsible for the disappearance of 43 students in Mexico. (Read more: Human rights: closing down of Russian Memorial NGO; Uzbekistan; Mexico )

 

Europaparlamentet står upp för mänskliga rättigheter. En del i det är debatterna som hålls under sessionerna i Strasbourg. Den här veckan diskuterar parlamentet situationen i Ryssland, Uzbekistan och Mexiko. Läs mer om debatterna och följ dem live via vår hemsida.

Pressmeddelande (del 2)
 

Concerns about how to reconcile the fundamental rights and non-discrimination of migrants with the need to gather information to dismantle criminal networks profiting from trafficking were the key points raised by MEPs in Wednesday evening’s debate with the Italian Presidency of the Council, represented by Benedetto Della Vedova on the EU-wide police crackdown on clandestine migrants "Mos Maiorum". (Read more: MEPs ask for further details of EU-wide police crackdown on clandestine migrants )

 

Concerns over the possible threats to the EU's internal security posed by Europeans returning home after fighting for the so-called “Islamic State” (IS) were raised by MEPs in a debate on Wednesday. Some called for a swift approval of the EU Passenger Name Record (PNR) proposal to better detect potential terrorists entering or leaving the EU. Most stressed, however, that all measures taken by the EU to tackle this problem must respect fundamental rights.

Turkiet måste göra mer för att stötta kurdernas kamp mot IS i Kobane. Det var många ledamöter eniga om i en debatt den 22 oktober om den belägrade syriska staden. De fördömde också IS:s våldsamma framfart och sade att mer måste göras för att bekämpa terroristgruppen och hjälpa dess offer. Vissa ledamöter förde också fram det potentiella hotet från kemiska vapen och efterfrågade en bredare strategi för Mellanöstern. (Läs mer: Ledamöter uppmanar Turkiet att göra mer för Kobane )

 

Den nya Europeiska kommissionen som leds av Jean/Claude Juncker har nu formellt valts av Europaparlamentet i Strasbourg med 423 ja-röster, 209 nej-röster och 67 nedlagda röster. I vår nyhetsgrafik hittar du dess sammansättning, kommissionärerna och deras ansvarsområden. (Läs mer: Den nya Europeiska kommissionen har röstats fram )

 

Efter två mandatperioder och 10 år som chef för den Europeiska kommissionen är José Manuel Barroso redo att lämna över stafettpinnen till Jean Claude-Juncker. Vi talade med Europeiska kommissionens ordförande strax efter hans debatt med ledamöterna i kammaren tisdagen den 21 oktober, då han gav sin syn på sin andra mandatperiod. Han sade bland annat att krisen inte kom från EU, utan från oansvarigt beteende på finansmarknaderna och bland vissa länder. (Läs mer: Barroso: “Krisen skapades inte av Europa” )

 

EU-länderna måste matcha sina politiska löften med reda pengar för att få fart på tillväxten, skapa nya jobb, främja forskning och utveckling och göra det möjligt för EU att sköta sin utrikespolitik, sa Europaparlamentets ledamöter när de på onsdagen röstade ner de nedskärningar som EU-ländernas finansministrar föreslagit i nästa års EU-budget. Dessutom krävde de att man först tillför de pengar som behövs för att betala alla räkningar detta år innan man börjar förhandla om nästa års budget. (Läs mer: Budget 2015: betala gamla räkningar, investera i tillväxt och sysselsättning )
