Czech Republic abuse of media, Anti-Semitism, Mobility package – this week at the European Parliament

This week the MEPs will be returning in Brussels for an agenda full of debates and committee meetings. We have selected a few highlights for you below.



Czech Republic abuse of media. Concern over reports on alleged political pressure exercised on the media has led MEPs to put the issue on the agenda for a debate with the Commission. (Thursday)

Anti-Semitism/fundamental rights. The recent rise of anti-Semitism in Europe and possible counter-measures will be discussed with the Commission and the Council on Wednesday. MEPs will vote on a resolution on Thursday and will also vote on the multiannual framework of the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights, which determines its working priorities for 2018-2022. (Debate on Wednesday, votes on Thursday)

Mobility package. The Commission will unveil and discuss with MEPs its new proposals to boost the EU transport sector. Earlier in May, Parliament pressed for measures to increase the use of alternative fuels, improve road safety and tackle unfair competition and the exploitation of workers. (Wednesday)

Protection of vulnerable adults. MEPs want to make it possible for vulnerable elderly people to be provided with social care in another EU country, e.g. in the case of protective measures for those who are unable to manage their personal affairs or property themselves. (Debate and vote on Thursday)
