Europaparlamentet sammanträder

 

Medlemsländerna har presenterat sina nominerade kommissionärer. Men, för att kommissionen ska kunna väljas, måste de föreslagna framtida medlemmarna först klara av utfrågningar i Europaparlamentet. Från och med den 29 september kommer de parlamentsutskott som hanterar frågorna som ingår i respektive kommissionärskandidats ansvarsområde att fråga ut dem, en efter en. Hur går det till? Kolla in vår nyhetsgrafik. (Läs mer: Nyhetsgrafik – Så väljs den Europeiska kommissionen )

 

År 2007 till 2013 fördelades mer än 400 miljoner euro ut bland tiotusentals arbetstagare för att vidareutbilda sig, söka nytt jobb eller starta ett nytt företag, såvida de blivit arbetslösa till följd av globaliseringen eller den ekonomiska krisen. Stödet har blivit tillgängligt genom EU:s fond för justering för globaliseringseffekter. Den 17 september godkände Europaparlamentet ytterligare stödpaket till arbetstagare i fyra länder. Läs mer om vilka länder som sökt stöd från fonden. (Läs mer: EU-fond hjälper överflödig arbetskraft att hitta nytt jobb: I siffror )

 

EU member states need to make more efficient use of €6 billon in EU funds to ease the transition from education to jobs for young people and foster entrepreneurship, urged MEPs in Wednesday's debate on the European Youth Initiative. Some advocated simplifying funding procedures, sharing best practices, and promoting apprenticeships, whilst others urged member states to do more to exploit the job-creating potential of new energy-saving and green technologies.

Europaparlamentets kammare debatterar på onsdagseftermiddagen om de många parallella konflikterna som pågår i Mellanöstern.

Hon gav sin syn inför debatterna, och berättade också att hon förväntar sig en tuff utfrågning av EU:s föreslagna utrikesrepresentant Federica Mogherini.

Pressmeddelande (del 2)
 

EU aid to help workers made redundant in various industries in Spain, The Netherlands, Romania and Greece to find new jobs was approved by the European Parliament on Wednesday. The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) funding, which would complement national efforts, now needs to be approved by the Council of Ministers.

The pharmaceutical industry is raising the prices of new, life-saving medicines ever higher, thus threatening the equal access to treatments while increasing the burden on healthcare systems, said MEPs during a debate with Council and the Commission on Tuesday. The issue will be discussed during the next informal Health Council meeting of 22-23 September. (Read more: MEPs question high pricing of certain life-saving medicines )

 

Hopes and fears for the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), which has been negotiated but still needs Parliament’s backing to enter into force, were aired in a debate with EU trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht on Tuesday.

– Du måste kunna övertyga, lirka med och förmå ibland motvilliga institutioner att ändra inställning eller att vara mer öppna i sitt beslutsfattande. Då kan det tyckas vara mer konst än vetenskap att vara ombudsman, säger Emily O’Reilly. Hon är EU:s tredje ombudsman och första kvinnan på posten. Irlands tidigare nationella ombudsman valdes av ledamöterna i juli 2013. O’Reilly, ersatte då sin företrädare för återstoden av hans mandat, vilket varar året ut. Hon gav sin syn på det gångna året. (Läs mer: O'Reilly: “Att vara ombudsman kan tyckas vara mer en konst än en vetenskap” )

 

More effort is needed to integrate the EU digital single market, so as to unlock its growth and job-creating potential, stressed MEPs in Tuesday’s debate with EU Internal Market Commissioner Michel Barnier. Measures to bring together the 28 national digital markets should include ending mobile roaming charges, promoting e-commerce, ensuring open access to the Internet for users and neutral treatment of its service providers, and also better data protection, they added. (Read more: Digital single market needs to be better integrated, say MEPs )

 

I maj 2014 var 5,2 miljoner unga människor arbetslösa i EU. På onsdagen den 17 september kommer ledamöter att tillsammans med rådet och EU-kommissionen att utvärdera framgångarna för de två kärnprogrammen i det Europeiska ungdomsinitiativet: Den europeiska ungdomsgarantin, och Sysselsättningsinitiativet för unga (YEI). I vårt diagram ser du hur mycket ungdomsarbetslösheten utvecklats i Sverige och i övriga EU-länder under de senaste 15 åren. Följ debatten live på onsdag från kl. 9.00.
