Backlash in Gender Equality and Women’s and Girls’ Rights

15-06-2018

This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the FEMM Committee, is designed to identify in which fields and by which means the backlash in gender equality and women’s and girls’ rights in six countries (Austria, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia) is occurring. The backlash, which has been happening over the last several years, has decreased the level of protection of women and girls and reduced ...

The backlash, which has been happening over the last several years, has decreased the level of protection of women and girls and reduced access to their rights.

Media pluralism and media freedom in the EU

25-04-2018

Media freedom and pluralism are among the rights and principles enshrined in the European Charter of Fundamental Rights and in the European Convention on Human Rights, as well as part of the Copenhagen criteria for membership of the EU, related to democracy and human rights. Despite that, there are currently concerns regarding threats to media freedom and pluralism in the EU. The own-initiative report on Media Pluralism and Media Freedom in the EU, due to be voted in plenary in May, aims at contributing ...

Despite that, there are currently concerns regarding threats to media freedom and pluralism in the EU. The own-initiative report on Media Pluralism and Media Freedom in the EU, due to be voted in plenary in May, aims at contributing towards free and pluralistic media systems across the EU that play a key role in any democratic society.

The added value of the European Citizens' Initiative (ECI), and its revision

13-04-2018

The European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) is aimed at bringing the EU closer to its citizens, by enabling them to invite the European Commission to make a proposal for a legal act. Introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon, the ECI should provide every citizen with the right to participate in the democratic life of the Union. However, the ECI in practice has had various procedural hurdles, preventing the fulfilment of the regulation's objectives. The ECI is thus not fulfilling its potential with regard to ...

The European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) is aimed at bringing the EU closer to its citizens, by enabling them to invite the European Commission to make a proposal for a legal act. Introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon, the ECI should provide every citizen with the right to participate in the democratic life of the Union. However, the ECI in practice has had various procedural hurdles, preventing the fulfilment of the regulation's objectives. The ECI is thus not fulfilling its potential with regard to bringing the EU closer to its citizens. Against this background, the present study outlines the weaknesses in the existing ECI procedure. Moreover, it assesses, with a view to their added value, the main reform proposals that have been put forward to improve the ECI's functioning.

European Citizens' Initiative (ECI)

29-01-2018

The European Citizens' Initiative (ECI), introduced in 2009 with the Lisbon Treaty, is a key element of participatory democracy, allowing citizens to play an active role in the EU's democratic life, through addressing a request to the European Commission to make a proposal for a legal act. The procedure and conditions for ECIs are governed by Regulation (EU) No 211/2011, in force since April 2012.

The procedure and conditions for ECIs are governed by Regulation (EU) No 211/2011, in force since April 2012. In September 2017, the European Commission presented a proposal for its amendment, picking up on a number of suggestions for improvement. This is a further update of an 'at a glance' note published in July 2017: PE 608.644.

Le soutien de l’Union aux défenseurs des droits de l’homme dans le monde

07-12-2017

Le soutien des défenseurs des droits de l’homme fait, de longue date, partie intégrante de la politique extérieure de l’Union européenne en matière de droits de l’homme et constitue l’une de ses grandes priorités. En adoptant les orientations concernant les défenseurs des droits de l’homme en 2004, l’Union a mis en place un train de mesures concrètes visant à garantir la protection des défenseurs des droits de l’homme qui sont en danger, y compris la fourniture d’une aide d’urgence.

Le soutien des défenseurs des droits de l’homme fait, de longue date, partie intégrante de la politique extérieure de l’Union européenne en matière de droits de l’homme et constitue l’une de ses grandes priorités. En adoptant les orientations concernant les défenseurs des droits de l’homme en 2004, l’Union a mis en place un train de mesures concrètes visant à garantir la protection des défenseurs des droits de l’homme qui sont en danger, y compris la fourniture d’une aide d’urgence. Les orientations encouragent les diplomates de l’Union à agir de manière plus proactive en instaurant des contacts avec les défenseurs des droits de l’homme et en intervenant en leur nom lorsqu’ils sont en danger. La Commission européenne gère par ailleurs un instrument financier visant à soutenir les activités des défenseurs des droits de l’homme qui travaillent dans les situations les plus dangereuses qui soient. Le soutien de l’Union est aujourd’hui primordial, les défenseurs des droits de l’homme évoluant dans un environnement toujours plus restrictif et subissant un nombre croissant de menaces. Le Parlement européen plaide depuis longtemps en faveur de l’adoption, par l’Union, d’une politique globale concernant les défenseurs des droits de l’homme et a activement contribué à son élaboration. Il a signalé les difficultés que rencontrent les défenseurs des droits de l’homme dans de nombreux pays au moyen de résolutions d’urgence sur les violations des droits de l’homme commises dans le monde, dont plusieurs concernaient des défenseurs des droits de l’homme donnés et les menaces spécifiques qu’ils subissent. Il a également organisé des auditions avec des défenseurs des droits de l’homme, a publié des déclarations relatives à des cas de défenseurs des droits de l’homme en danger et a mis en évidence, à l’occasion de missions effectuées par ses délégations dans les pays concernés, les difficultés rencontrées par les défenseurs des droits de l’homme. Le prix Sakharov du Parlement est l’action de l’Union la plus visible en faveur des défenseurs des droits de l’homme. Ses conséquences pour les lauréats sont considérables: il leur apporte reconnaissance et, souvent, une protection indirecte. La présente note d’information constitue une version mise à jour de celle de décembre 2015: PE 573.879.

Growing impact of EU migration policy on development cooperation

17-11-2017

The sudden substantial increase in the number of migrants in recent years has had a profound effect on the external relations dimension of European Union migration and asylum policy. The main components structuring EU external migration policy – the Global Approach to Migration and Mobility (GAMM), European Agenda on Migration, and proposed migration compacts – explicitly underline the link between development and migration.

The sudden substantial increase in the number of migrants in recent years has had a profound effect on the external relations dimension of European Union migration and asylum policy. The main components structuring EU external migration policy – the Global Approach to Migration and Mobility (GAMM), European Agenda on Migration, and proposed migration compacts – explicitly underline the link between development and migration. Grounded in the need to address the root causes of migration and to maximise its development impact, the development-migration nexus has evolved from the traditional treaty-based development policy approach, with its requirement of ensuring that all EU policies contribute to development objectives, to a more complex configuration. That, accordingly, many fear, may lead to the ‘instrumentalisation’ of development aid for migration management purposes. The European Parliament has taken a clear stand on this issue, calling, in a number of its recent resolutions, for the retention of poverty alleviation as the main goal of EU development policy, even when its instruments are used at the same time to tackle the root causes of migration. Along with the non-governmental organisations (NGOs) active in this field, the European Parliament opposes aid conditionality dependent on partner countries cooperating on readmission and return, as laid out in the migration compacts. Addressing the current migration challenge without jeopardising development policy achievements and objectives is one of the key issues of the revised European consensus on development, from June 2017. This is an updated edition of a briefing published in October 2016: PE 589.815.

UE et organisations confessionnelles – développement et aide humanitaire

08-11-2017

De par le monde, les organisations confessionnelles sont actives dans les domaines du développement et de l’aide humanitaire. Leur caractère confessionnel peut revêtir différents aspects (lien avec une organisation religieuse, financement, mandat ou principaux bénéficiaires) et, collectivement, ces organisations sont d’importants acteurs de terrain. Il n’existe pourtant aucune définition précise des organisations confessionnelles, alors que, dans la pratique, il en existe de nombreuses formes différentes ...

De par le monde, les organisations confessionnelles sont actives dans les domaines du développement et de l’aide humanitaire. Leur caractère confessionnel peut revêtir différents aspects (lien avec une organisation religieuse, financement, mandat ou principaux bénéficiaires) et, collectivement, ces organisations sont d’importants acteurs de terrain. Il n’existe pourtant aucune définition précise des organisations confessionnelles, alors que, dans la pratique, il en existe de nombreuses formes différentes, actives dans l’apport d’aide et d’aide au développement. En effet, les organisations confessionnelles comptent parmi les principales ONG actives dans les domaines du développement et de l’aide. Au cours des vingt dernières années, les bailleurs de fonds au niveau national et international ont cherché à mieux comprendre les organisations confessionnelles et à mieux coopérer avec elles. La Banque mondiale et un certain nombre d’États membres de l’Union ont élaboré des programmes et acquis une expertise dans ce domaine. L’une des raisons expliquant l’intérêt croissant pour le travail des organisations confessionnelles réside dans le fait que la confession en elle-même joue souvent un rôle majeur au sein des sociétés bénéficiaires, et que le travail avec les chefs religieux de ces communautés est souvent le moyen le plus efficace de faire parvenir l’aide à la population locale. L’Union européenne coopère également avec les organisations confessionnelles dans le domaine du développement et de l’aide humanitaire par l’intermédiaire de différents programmes avec la société civile et en matière de droits de l’homme. L’Union ne tient cependant pas de statistiques précises, car le caractère confessionnel du bénéficiaire ne figure pas parmi les critères de sélection des partenaires.

Proceedings of the Workshop on Post-2020 Audit Reform: Mission Possible

16-10-2017

Audit work has changed over the years. Compliance audits look principally at the legality and regularity of payments, but they say nothing about whether the political and economic objectives were achieved. A bridge in the middle of nowhere may have been built in respect of public procurement rules and contract obligations. These compliance audits are increasingly supplemented by performance audits, in which you try to answer the question whether the objective was achieved in an economic, effective ...

Audit work has changed over the years. Compliance audits look principally at the legality and regularity of payments, but they say nothing about whether the political and economic objectives were achieved. A bridge in the middle of nowhere may have been built in respect of public procurement rules and contract obligations. These compliance audits are increasingly supplemented by performance audits, in which you try to answer the question whether the objective was achieved in an economic, effective and efficient manner. In spite of the growing complexity of the audit process the administrative burden for beneficiaries should remain reasonable. The key question is: How do we strike the right balance between providing easy access to European public funds for beneficiaries, while guaranteeing sound financial management. One element which has to be put in place for this purpose is a single audit chain, where one level builds on the work of the other.
