UN Convention on children's rights: 30 years on

11-11-2019

This month marks the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), the first international treaty to recognise children as human beings with innate rights. Since 1989, conditions for children have improved, but millions remain unprotected. This is an updated and expanded version of an 'at a glance' note from 2014.

Oleg Sentsov: The 2018 Sakharov Prize laureate

09-10-2019

Thirty years since it was first awarded, the European Parliament's Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought retains all its symbolic meaning, as human rights are continually under threat in many parts of the world. By awarding the 2018 Prize to the Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, Parliament aimed to increase the pressure on the Russian government to release him. The award also drew attention to all Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia and the annexed Crimean peninsula. On 7 September 2019, Sentsov ...

On 7 September 2019, Sentsov was released as part of a major prisoner swap between Russia and Ukraine. He is due to receive the award in person in Strasbourg on 26 November 2019.

Ukraine: Navigating multiple challenges

07-10-2019

Five years after the 'revolution of dignity', in which Ukrainians demanded a functioning democracy and an end to kleptocracy, the country elected a new President in April 2019 and a new Parliament in July. The new leaders in Kyiv are facing a wide range of persistent challenges. Russia's ongoing hybrid war against the country, including the illegal occupation of Crimea and the war in eastern Ukraine, as well as the continued reform process dominate the agenda.

The European Parliament's evolving soft power - From back-door diplomacy to agenda-setting: Democracy support and mediation

27-09-2019

For the past 40 years, Members of the European Parliament have been working at boosting Parliament's role in EU foreign policy. These efforts have continued to be stepped up since the launch of the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) in 1993. Over recent decades, the European Parliament has significantly raised its profile as a credible moral force with strong focus on strengthening human rights, supporting democracy and enhancing the rule of law worldwide. Perhaps less visible than the European ...

For the past 40 years, Members of the European Parliament have been working at boosting Parliament's role in EU foreign policy. These efforts have continued to be stepped up since the launch of the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) in 1993. Over recent decades, the European Parliament has significantly raised its profile as a credible moral force with strong focus on strengthening human rights, supporting democracy and enhancing the rule of law worldwide. Perhaps less visible than the European Parliament's Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought, the European Parliament's democracy support activities are part of its 'soft-power' approach to international relations. Moreover, Parliament can convey messages through channels that are different from, and complementary to, those employed by the EU's traditional diplomatic players; for example, through its parliamentary networks. Parliament also enjoys Treaty-based information and consultation rights, which allow its Members to shape the EU's external policies. In addition, the European Parliament has become a public forum for debating with representatives of partner countries and international organisations, as well as influential non-state actors. MEPs pro-actively engage in inter-parliamentary delegations and missions to third countries as well as joint parliamentary assemblies. Moreover, parties in different countries often share strong links via their political families.

Understanding European Parliament delegations

26-09-2019

Members of the European Parliament form official groups – delegations – with ties to regions and organisations, as well as parliaments, in non-EU countries. Parliament has expanded its impact EU in foreign policy in recent decades, and its delegations are a key component of its diplomatic work.

EU cooperation with Greenland

11-04-2019

The overall aim of the European Union-Greenland Partnership Agreement is to boost ties and cooperation between the EU and Greenland, with education and training as one of several key areas of cooperation. As part of the partnership, and taking Greenland's needs into account, the focal point of EU-Greenland financial cooperation is education and training, with a special emphasis on boosting the pre-school and elementary school system, as well as on providing support for vocational education and post-elementary ...

EU-Belarus people-to-people contacts

25-03-2019

The autocratic policies pursued by Belarus's long-standing president, Alexander Lukashenko, have strained EU-Belarus ties over the years. Against this backdrop, the EU has geared its support towards the Belarusian people at large. The crisis in Ukraine slowly rekindled EU-Belarus relations, but the backbone of cooperation remains civil society support and people-to-people contacts.

EU-Moldova people-to-people contacts

14-03-2019

Since the Republic of Moldova joined the Eastern Partnership regional initiative 10 years ago, its ties with the EU have grown closer. In recent years, however, the country's political, economic and societal stability has become increasingly wobbly, and public trust in institutions and even NGOs remains low. The EU is working to strengthen the role of civil society organisations in public life.

Conas a aithint nuair is bréagnuacht atá ann

19-02-2019

Mar fheiniméan atá scaipthe ar fud an domhain, is feiceálaí go mór anois iad ‘bréagnuacht’ agus bréagaisnéis – faisnéis a ndéantar cúbláil uirthi d’aon turas ar mhaithe le dallamullóg a chur ar dhaoine. Mar thoradh ar na meáin shóisialta agus a n-uirlisí pearsantaithe, tá sé níos éasca scéalta bréagacha a scaipeadh. Is minic dóibh mothúcháin a thathant ar dhaoine le haird a tharraingt orthu féin agus cliceanna a ghríosadh, ar chúiseanna idir eacnamaíoch agus idé-eolaíoch. Fiú daoine óga, a bhfuil ...

Mar fheiniméan atá scaipthe ar fud an domhain, is feiceálaí go mór anois iad ‘bréagnuacht’ agus bréagaisnéis – faisnéis a ndéantar cúbláil uirthi d’aon turas ar mhaithe le dallamullóg a chur ar dhaoine. Mar thoradh ar na meáin shóisialta agus a n-uirlisí pearsantaithe, tá sé níos éasca scéalta bréagacha a scaipeadh. Is minic dóibh mothúcháin a thathant ar dhaoine le haird a tharraingt orthu féin agus cliceanna a ghríosadh, ar chúiseanna idir eacnamaíoch agus idé-eolaíoch. Fiú daoine óga, a bhfuil géarthuiscint ar an teicneolaíocht acu, is deacair leo nuacht chúbláilte a aithint. Scéal suntasach is ea é go gcuirtear ar aghaidh sé mhír nuachta as gach deich gcinn a roinntear ar na meáin shóisialta gan iad a léamh ar dtús. Tá thart ar 85 % de mhuintir na hEorpa den tuairim gur fadhb í ‘bréagnuacht’ ina dtír féin, agus measann 83 % gur fadhb í don daonlathas i gcoitinne. Beidh an compás seo ina chuidiú duit teacht slán as an manglam faisnéise agus do bhealach a dhéanamh trí na bréaga agus an bhréagaisnéis.
