Bijna vier jaar geleden stortte een kledingfabriek in, het Rana Plaza, in Bangladesh. Het dodental liep op tot meer dan 1.100 werknemers en 2.500 werknemers raakten gewond. In de fabriek werden een aantal bekende merken geproduceerd. De leden van de commissie Ontwikkelingssamenwerking willen ervoor zorgen dat de kleding en textiel die we kopen niet wordt geproduceerd ten koste van de veiligheid, mensenrechten, gezondheid en waardigheid van werknemers. Bekijk de video voor meer informatie. (Lees meer: Textielarbeiders: de menselijke prijs voor goedkope kleding )

"Onaanvaardbaar" EP-Voorzitter Tajani was deze week duidelijk in zijn veroordeling van de beschuldigen van Turkije aan Nederland en Duitsland. Volgens Turkije gebruikten deze twee landen nazipraktijken om te verhinderen dat Turkse ministers campagne konden voeren voor het referendum over meer bevoegdheden voor de Turkse President. De EU en Turkije werken op veel gebieden samen. Het afgelopen jaar is de spanning echter opgelopen. Lees verder voor een overzicht van de huidige stand van zaken.

The new European Solidarity Corps deserves its own budget – it should not be funded at the expense of the Erasmus+ or Europe for Citizens programmes, urge Culture and Education Committee MEPs in a resolution voted on Wednesday. Offering young people an opportunity to take part in solidarity schemes all over Europe would help them to gain experience for future long-term jobs, they add. (Read more: EU Solidarity Corps not to be funded with Erasmus+ budget, urge culture MEPs )

People from across Europe gathered in the European Parliament on Tuesday to share their views on the future of the European Union with MEPs.

Tin, wolfraam, tantaal en goud: mineralen die wij associëren met hightech genoegens zoals smartphones, tabletten of auto's, maar die voor mensen het Grote Merengebied in Afrika eerder verwijzen naar vechten en bloed. De mijnbouw en illegale handel is vaak in handen van gewapende groepen en voeden een vicieuze cirkel van conflicten. Het Parlement stemde deze maand om EU-bedrijven verantwoordelijk te maken voor de afkomst van mineralen die zij importeren. Onze video legt uit hoe. (Lees meer: Conflictmineralen: de waarheid achter uw smartphone )

 

All EU lobbyists looking to influence legislation, should be required to sign the transparency register before being allowed to enter the European Parliament, says a resolution approved by the Constitutional Affairs Committee on Tuesday.

New powers for national authorities to check whether e-commerce websites geo-block consumers, track down rogue traders or even, subject to safeguards inserted by MEPs, order that websites hosting scams be shut down, were approved by the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee on Tuesday. (Read more: E-commerce: EU-wide rules to protect consumers better and stop rogue traders )
