The Coudenhove-Kalergi European prize

Question for written answer E-001516-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
John Stuart Agnew (ENF)

EU leaders continue to receive the Coudenhove-Kalergi European prize, which was inspired by Count Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi’s theories. I have, however, been made aware that one of his publications, ‘Practical Idealism’, contains racist theories and rhetoric and espouses racial engineering. This bears an uncanny parallel with the ‘open door’ immigration attitude to North African and African countries that we have seen throughout the EU Member States.

Would the Commission assure my constituents that current EU immigration policies do not reflect and are not part of the ‘Kalergi plan’?

Can it also explain why Count Coudenhove-Kalergi is feted, when the open use of such language could possibly see ordinary European citizens facing prosecution?
