Europaparlamentet sammanträder

 

Seven nominees for the European Parliament’s 2014 Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought, chosen by political groups and groups of MEPs, will be presented at a meeting of the Foreign Affairs and Development committees and the Human Rights Subcommittee on 23 September, at 16:15. (Read more: Nominees for Sakharov Prize 2014 announced )

 

I en historisk omröstning på tisdagen godkände parlamentariker i Strasbourg och i Kiev associeringsavtalet mellan EU och Ukraina parallellt. Europaparlamentet föreslog även ökat ekonomiskt stöd till jordbrukare som drabbats hårdast av Rysslands handelsembargo och uppmanade EU att använda alla tillgängliga medel för att bekämpa IS, Islamiska staten. Ledamöter efterlyste effektivare användning av de resurser som avsatts för att skapa jobb för unga. Läs mer om plenarsessionen den 15-18 september. (Läs mer: Saker vi lärde oss under septembersessionen )

 

Europaparlamentets ledamöter fördömde på torsdagen den Islamiska statens (IS) mord på de amerikanska journalisterna James Foley och Steven Sotloff och den brittiske biståndsarbetaren David Haines i en resolution de antog vid lunchtid. De uppmanar EU‑länderna att bistå irakiska och lokala myndigheter "med alla medel, även lämpligt militärt stöd" och uppmanar också det internationella samfundet att strypa IS tillgångar. Parlamentet efterlyser också en politisk lösning på konflikten i Syrien. (Läs mer: Islamiska staten: krafttag behövs för att stoppa dödandet )

 

The candidate commissioners as presented by incoming Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, will be scrutinised by the European Parliament committees from 29 September to 7 October. Members will evaluate candidates' suitability before the full house votes on the proposed Commission. The leaders of the political groups have agreed on Thursday on the format and programme for the public hearings. (Read more: Public hearings of commissioners-candidate: format and schedule )

 
Pressmeddelande (del 2)
 

The European Parliament welcomes signs of hope in moves towards peace in Ukraine and in the newly-ratified EU-Ukraine association agreement, but worries about Russia’s real intentions in the undeclared "hybrid war" there. In a resolution adopted on Thursday, it urges the EU to stand up to Russia and step up support for EU farmers hit by its trade ban. (Read more: MEPs welcome signs of hope in Ukraine and urge the EU to stand up to Russia )

 

The EU must step up its involvement in supporting Libya’s stability and transition to democracy, said the European Parliament in a vote on Thursday. MEPs condemned the growing use of violence there, especially against civilians, and called for a ceasefire between the fighting factions. They also said humanitarian assistance, the safety of civilians and the security of humanitarian personnel must be ensured by all parties in the conflict. (Read more: Libya: EU must step up efforts to support stability and democracy, MEPs say )

 

The European Parliament called on Azerbaijan to proceed with human rights reforms, Burundi to release human rights campaigner Pierre Claver Mbonimpa, and Bangladesh to apply international labour standards, in three resolutions voted on Thursday. (Read more: Human rights: Azerbaijan; the case of Mbonimpa in Burundi; Bangladesh )

 

The Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa has been underrated by the international community and now constitutes a challenge to global security, say MEPs in a resolution voted on Thursday. As the affected countries face socio-economic collapse, the deployment of military assets under the UN flag should be considered and access to existing treatments speeded up, they add. (Read more: West Africa’s Ebola outbreak is a global security issue, says Parliament )

 

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. (Read more: Getting the European Youth Initiative to deliver jobs )
