Seminārus organizē politikas departamenti, un tajos deputāti var uzdot jautājumus un apmainīties viedokļiem ar ekspertiem par jautājumiem, kas saistīti ar Parlamenta darbu, vai par aktuālām tēmām. Semināri var nebūt publiski, bet tos var rīkot arī komitejas sanāksmes laikā.

Environmental crimes have become a wide spread phenomenon worldwide and are widely recognised as one of the most profitable forms of transnational criminal activity. Bringing together a wide range of international experts and policy-makers, the workshop, to be held on 19 May 2022, 14.00-16.30, will seek to identify existing gaps in policy and legal responses, and generate debates about how the identified gaps can be filled.

During the event Members listened to the presentation of the final study on "Single Audit Approach - Root Causes of the Weaknesses in the Work of the Member States’ Managing and Audit Authorities" by CSES authors, Jack Malan and Marta di Mauro. The workshop also included the participation of representatives from two Member States that contributed with information about the perspective of a single audit approach in their countries.

What role for the ICC?

What role can the International Criminal Court (ICC) play in a global context of pervasive impunity and a backlash against human rights?

Such questions will be discussed at the Workshop on the ICC on 28 October 2021 with academic experts, representatives of human rights organisations, lawyers and activists.
