The current situation in Europe of Anti-Semitism and future prospects for Europe’s Jewish communities will be debated at a conference hosted by EP President Martin Schulz and First Vice-President Antonio Tajani in Parliament’s premises on Tuesday afternoon. Anti-Semitism and attacks against Jews in Europe have grown in recent years. (Read more: What future for the Jewish communities in Europe? )

 

Members of the Euro-Latin American parliamentary Assembly “expect and hope” that the “historic” peace agreement between the Government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) will be approved in the referendum to be held on 2 October. Once the deal is approved and the definitive and irreversible laying down of weapons is confirmed, they add, the FARC should be removed from the EU’s list of terrorist organisations. (Read more: EuroLat “expects and hopes” Colombia will approve peace deal on 2 October )

 

With around 1.5 million refugees fleeing to Lebanon since the start of the war in Syria, it is clear that the situation in the country is untenable and that substantial help is needed to avoid a complete breakdown, not only in terms of financial assistance, but also through improved resettlement tools, says Civil Liberties Committee Chair Claude Moraes, who this week headed a delegation to Beirut. (Read more: MEPs in Lebanon: funding alone not enough, better resettlement tools needed )

 

Inom EU har arbetstagare inte samma arbetsvillkor eller samma sociala skyddsnivå. Den ekonomiska konkurrensen är hög och företag försöker skära ner sina kostnader för arbetskraft, exempelvis genom social dumpning. Detta kan leda till att arbetstagare blir utnyttjade som billig arbetskraft. Under förra veckans plenarsession krävde ledamöterna att man stoppar denna orättvisa konkurrens. Åtgärder för att teckna kollektivavtal och införa minimilön stod också på programmet. (Läs mer: Social dumpning: Ledamöterna kräver social rättvisa och bättre löner )

Deepening the integration of the EU and Latin America is the best way to respond to common challenges, agreed parliamentarians from both sides of the Atlantic at the opening of the ninth plenary session of the Euro-Latin Parliamentary Assembly (EuroLat), on Tuesday in Montevideo (Uruguay). The economic situation, trade relations between the EU and Latin America and between both regions and China, managing migration flows and fighting terrorism are also on the agenda. (Read more: EuroLat opening: deeper EU-Latin integration needed to tackle common challenges )

 

En grupp på sju ledamöter från utskottet för medborgerliga fri- och rättigheter besöker Libanon för att bedöma flyktingsituationen på plats. (Läs mer: Live: Ledamöterna besöker Libanon för att bedöma svaret på flyktingkrisen )

 

A 7-strong delegation of Civil Liberties Committee MEPs will be in Lebanon this week to look into the situation of refugees and resettlement. MEPs will visit refugee camps and meet UNHCR, UNICEF, UNRWA, international NGOs and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) staff working with the refugees. They will also meet representatives of the Lebanese Parliament and Minister for Social Affairs Mr Rashed Derbas (tbc). (Read more: Refugee resettlement - Civil Liberties MEPs in Lebanon )

 

Managing global migration flows, trade relations between the EU and Latin American countries, and between both regions and China, plus the setting-up of an EU-CELAC Common Research Area, will be key agenda items at the ninth plenary session of the Euro-Latin American parliamentary Assembly (Eurolat) next week in Montevideo (Uruguay).

Plenarsessionen i Strasbourg 12-15 september dominerades av EU-kommissionens ordförande Jean-Claude Junckers tal om EU:s tillstånd. Ledamöterna utväxlade också synpunkter med Tibets ledare Dalai Lama och uttryckte stöd till kommissionens beslut att Irland måste kräva tillbaka det olagliga statsstödet till Apple. (Läs mer: Septembers plenarsession: EU:s tillstånd, bilars utsläpp och situationen i Polen )

 

EU-kommissionens slutsats att Irland bör betala 13 miljarder euro i skatt har väckt liv i diskussionerna om hur mycket skatt stora företag bör betala. Konkurrenskommissionären Margrethe Vestager fick igår, onsdagen den 14 september, stort stöd från ledamöterna då hon inför plenaren förklarade EU-kommissionens tillvägagångssätt. För en vecka sedan pratade vi med Markus Ferber (EPP, Tyskland), en av de centrala EU-parlamentarikerna när det gäller skattefrågor. (Läs mer: MEP Ferber: Att dra till sig investeringar genom skatteavtal är olagligt i EU )
