A global compact on migration: Placing human rights at the heart of migration management

18-12-2017

The global flow of refugees and migrants poses challenges, opportunities and obligations for countries around the world. At the very heart of the debate on migration management is how to ensure that the different interests and needs are addressed within a strong human rights framework. The United Nations (UN) is investigating the issue in great depth, and one of the main outcomes of the UN General Assembly in 2016 was a declaration demanding greater international cooperation on managing migration ...

The global flow of refugees and migrants poses challenges, opportunities and obligations for countries around the world. At the very heart of the debate on migration management is how to ensure that the different interests and needs are addressed within a strong human rights framework. The United Nations (UN) is investigating the issue in great depth, and one of the main outcomes of the UN General Assembly in 2016 was a declaration demanding greater international cooperation on managing migration. This declaration was widely endorsed, including by the European Union (EU). As a result, two global compacts are to be adopted in 2018, for refugees and for other migrants; this briefing will focus on the latter. According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the UN migration agency in charge of the global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration, these compacts 'provide the opportunity to move ahead in strengthening the norms, principles, rules and decision-making processes that will allow for more effective international cooperation in responding to what is a defining issue'. Providing continued institutional support to address these issues and implement the outcomes of the global compacts will be a challenge.

Urban agriculture in Europe Patterns, challenges and policies

18-12-2017

It is estimated that by 2050, 67 % of the world's population will live in urban areas. Increasing concerns over food security coupled with concerns over climate change have helped to promote interest in urban agriculture and the role it can play in respect of food security. The present paper aims to provide an overview of urban agriculture by examining it as it relates to issues of food security, the economy, social dimensions and the environment. Using short case studies and drawing on research ...

It is estimated that by 2050, 67 % of the world's population will live in urban areas. Increasing concerns over food security coupled with concerns over climate change have helped to promote interest in urban agriculture and the role it can play in respect of food security. The present paper aims to provide an overview of urban agriculture by examining it as it relates to issues of food security, the economy, social dimensions and the environment. Using short case studies and drawing on research from both Europe and the USA, the paper further explores the potential impact that urban agriculture can have and sets out its policy context. Looking to the future, one of the many challenges facing urban agriculture will be how it will achieve the necessary integration across all relevant EU policy areas.

European Council Conclusions: A Rolling Check-List of Commitments to Date

18-12-2017

The European Council's role – to 'provide the Union with the necessary impetus for its development' and to define its 'general political directions and priorities' - has developed rapidly over the past eight years. Since June 2014, the European Council Oversight Unit within the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), the European Parliament's in-house research service and think-tank, has been monitoring and analysing the European Council's delivery of the various commitments made in the conclusions ...

The European Council's role – to 'provide the Union with the necessary impetus for its development' and to define its 'general political directions and priorities' - has developed rapidly over the past eight years. Since June 2014, the European Council Oversight Unit within the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS), the European Parliament's in-house research service and think-tank, has been monitoring and analysing the European Council's delivery of the various commitments made in the conclusions of its meetings. This overview, presented in the form of a regularly updated Rolling Check-List of Commitments to Date, is designed to review the degree of progress in realising the goals which the European Council has set itself since January 2010 and to assist the Parliament in exercising its important oversight role in this field.

This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the European Parliament Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE Committee), presents an overview of the legal and policy framework in the EU and 10 select EU Member States on persons suspected of terrorism-related crimes. The study analyses how Member States define suspects of terrorism-related crimes, what measures are available to state authorities to prevent and investigate such crimes and how information on suspects of terrorism-related crimes is exchanged between Member States. The comparative analysis between the 10 Member States subject to this study, in combination with the examination of relevant EU policy and legislation, leads to the development of key conclusions and recommendations.

Europos skaitmeninė darbotvarkė

Nuo 1995 m. dėl informacinių ir ryšių technologijų (IRT) padidėjo našumas ir sustiprėjo augimas Europos Sąjungoje[1]. IRT sąvokai priskiriamos įvairios technologijos: nuo informacinių technologijų (IT) iki telekomunikacijų, transliuojamosios žiniasklaidos ir visų rūšių garso ir vaizdo apdorojimo ir perdavimo, taip pat tinklo kontrolės ir stebėsenos funkcijų.

Nuo 1995 m. dėl informacinių ir ryšių technologijų (IRT) padidėjo našumas ir sustiprėjo augimas Europos Sąjungoje[1]. IRT sąvokai priskiriamos įvairios technologijos: nuo informacinių technologijų (IT) iki telekomunikacijų, transliuojamosios žiniasklaidos ir visų rūšių garso ir vaizdo apdorojimo ir perdavimo, taip pat tinklo kontrolės ir stebėsenos funkcijų. Per pastaruosius tris dešimtmečius dėl vadinamosios technologinės konvergencijos beveik išnyko ribos tarp telekomunikacijų, transliavimo ir IT. Nors linijinis transliavimas ir toliau yra pagrindinė informacijos sklaidos ir pramogų priemonė Europoje, atsiranda vis daugiau užsakomojo audiovizualinio turinio, o sparčiai besiplečiantis 4G ir 5G interneto ryšys ir daiktų internetas suteikia galimybių internetu naudotis praktiškai visada. Siekdama susidoroti su įvairiais iššūkiais Komisija 2015 m. pradėjo vykdyti Bendrosios skaitmeninės rinkos strategiją, kad būtų pateikti pagrindiniai prioritetinių sričių, kaip antai e. prekybos didinimo, autorių teisių, garso ir vaizdo paslaugų, telekomunikacijų peržiūros, e. privatumo, skaitmeninių teisių suderinimo, įperkamų siuntų pristatymo paslaugų, suderintų PVM taisyklių ir kibernetinio saugumo sričių pasiūlymai dėl teisėkūros procedūra priimamų aktų.

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's impact assessment (IA) accompanying its above-mentioned proposal amending the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), submitted on 4 May 2017 and referred to Parliament's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs. The IA accompanying a subsequent Commission proposal (COM(2017) 331), also amending the EMIR regulation, as regards the authorisation of central counterparties and the recognition of third-country central counterparties, will be analysed in a forthcoming initial appraisal. This proposal is part of the Commission's REFIT programme, which stands for Regulatory Fitness and Performance. One of the stated aims of this programme is to make EU law 'simpler, lighter, more efficient and less costly' (Better Regulation Guidelines of 2015, p. 91). EMIR, adopted in 2012, forms part of the European regulatory response to the financial crisis. It specifically addresses the problems observed in the functioning of the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market from the 2007-2008 financial crisis onwards.
