Lauréate du prix Sakharov 2020: l’opposition démocratique en Biélorussie

01-12-2020

Dans un contexte de montée de l’autoritarisme, le prix Sakharov attire l’attention sur la situation de celles et ceux qui résistent contre les atteintes aux droits de l’homme et aux libertés fondamentales. Le prix a été attribué cette année à l’opposition démocratique en Biélorussie, représentée par le Conseil de coordination.

Le prix a été attribué cette année à l’opposition démocratique en Biélorussie, représentée par le Conseil de coordination. Il récompense le rôle courageux que l’opposition démocratique a joué en faveur de la paix, en s’élevant contre la falsification des résultats des élections d’août 2020, malgré une répression brutale de la part des autorités. La cérémonie de remise du prix Sakharov se tiendra durant la session plénière de décembre du Parlement européen.

The poisoning of Alexey Navalny

21-09-2020

EU-Russia relations hit a new low in August 2020, after Alexey Navalny, one of Russia's leading opposition activists, was poisoned by a banned nerve agent. Although the perpetrators have not yet been identified, the attack has to be seen in the context of repression and growing discontent against Putin. In response to this clear breach of international law and human rights, the EU is considering additional sanctions against Moscow.

Belarus on the brink

25-08-2020

As usual in Belarus, the 9 August presidential election was marred by fraud, repression and state violence against the opposition. As expected, the long-standing President, Aleksander Lukashenko, claimed a landslide victory. What was unusual this time, however, was the scale of Belarusians' disappointment: peaceful protests and strikes spread throughout the entire country in response to the stolen election, despite brutal crackdowns. What started as a national crisis now represents a wider struggle ...

As usual in Belarus, the 9 August presidential election was marred by fraud, repression and state violence against the opposition. As expected, the long-standing President, Aleksander Lukashenko, claimed a landslide victory. What was unusual this time, however, was the scale of Belarusians' disappointment: peaceful protests and strikes spread throughout the entire country in response to the stolen election, despite brutal crackdowns. What started as a national crisis now represents a wider struggle between truth and lies, democracy and autocracy, raising the stakes for both Minsk and Moscow, whose nervousness has spilled over into mounting aggression.

The European Council video-conference meeting of 19 August 2020 was called by the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, due to the increasingly worrying situation in Belarus after the recent national elections.

The European Council video-conference meeting of 19 August 2020 was called by the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, due to the increasingly worrying situation in Belarus after the recent national elections. As Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, summarised, the European Council decided to convey three clear messages from the meeting: i) the EU stands with the Belarussian people; ii) the EU will place sanctions on all those responsible for violence, repression and the falsification of election results; and iii) the EU is ready to accompany the peaceful democratic transition of power in Belarus. While mainly focusing on Belarus, the Heads of State or Government also discussed two further issues during the video-conference meeting. First, as regards the tense situation in the eastern Mediterranean as a result of increasingly hostile Turkish activity, the European Council expressed its full solidarity with Greece and Cyprus, recalling and reaffirming its previous conclusions on the illegal drilling activities, and called for de-escalation. Second, on the situation in Mali, EU leaders expressed their deep concern over the events in the country, which have a destabilising impact on the entire region and on the fight against terrorism, and called for an immediate release of prisoners and restoration of the rule of law.

Hong Kong: une loi sur la sécurité imposée par Pékin?

11-06-2020

Le 28 mai 2020, le Congrès national du peuple (CNP) de la République populaire de Chine a autorisé son Comité permanent à adopter une loi sur la sécurité nationale à Hong Kong, sans passer par le Conseil législatif, l’organe parlementaire de la ville. La loi, qui devrait entrer en vigueur avant les élections législatives de Hong Kong, prévues en septembre 2020, pourrait représenter un tournant au regard du «degré élevé d’autonomie» dont bénéficie la ville et une mise en œuvre prématurée du processus ...

La loi, qui devrait entrer en vigueur avant les élections législatives de Hong Kong, prévues en septembre 2020, pourrait représenter un tournant au regard du «degré élevé d’autonomie» dont bénéficie la ville et une mise en œuvre prématurée du processus de suppression progressive du modèle «un pays, deux systèmes», qui devait perdurer 50 ans à compter de 1997. Lors de la période de session de juin, le Parlement européen devrait débattre au sujet d’une déclaration du haut représentant.

The Venezuelan migrant crisis: A growing emergency for the region

17-12-2018

Although the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela has traditionally been a country of destination for migrants, around 2010 its migratory profile started to change to that of a country of origin. In fact, in the past few years migration away from Venezuela has reached massive levels, creating an unprecedented humanitarian crisis in the region. According to the United Nations' International Organization for Migration (IOM), the number of Venezuelans abroad has risen from under 700 000 in 2015 to 3 million ...

Although the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela has traditionally been a country of destination for migrants, around 2010 its migratory profile started to change to that of a country of origin. In fact, in the past few years migration away from Venezuela has reached massive levels, creating an unprecedented humanitarian crisis in the region. According to the United Nations' International Organization for Migration (IOM), the number of Venezuelans abroad has risen from under 700 000 in 2015 to 3 million in November 2018. About 70 % of this human wave has been directed to South American countries such as Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina and Brazil, but also to North and Central America and the Caribbean, and even Europe. The main factors contributing to this exodus are Venezuela's deteriorating political situation, a severe economic crisis and increasing violence. This mass migration could have a destabilising effect on the main recipient and transit countries. Besides individual responses developed by host countries to provide migrants with emergency assistance and protection and to facilitate their integration, Latin American countries are trying to give a coordinated regional response to the crisis. Furthermore, migration authorities, ombudsmen and NGOs have also promoted regional initiatives to defend the rights of Venezuelan migrants abroad and their access to basic services. The UN and regional organisations are also working to help deal with the crisis, and the EU is contributing €35.1 million in emergency aid and medium-term development assistance for the Venezuelan people and the affected neighbouring countries. The European Parliament sent an ad hoc mission to Brazil and Colombia in June 2018 to assess the situation, and has adopted resolutions on the subject.

Rapport 2016 sur la Turquie

27-06-2017

À sa session plénière de juillet, le Parlement européen doit voter une résolution sur le rapport 2016 de la Commission, consacré à la Turquie. Les relations de longue date entre l’Union et la Turquie sont une priorité pour les deux parties mais elles se sont sensiblement détériorées ces derniers temps, ce qui risque de porter un coup d’arrêt aux négociations d’adhésion.
