25/01/2024 | 19:23:49 Thank you, Mr Chairman. The debate on guaranteeing the freedom of the media and the safety of journalists has its rightful place in this house; all the more so as we currently find ourselves in a situation where this freedom is deteriorating. The report by our colleague, Mr Mogens JENSEN, takes stock of the growing trend towards exposure to professional risks. Media professionals are being attacked, threatened and intimidated - if not outright imprisoned, tortured or even murdered. Since the... 20/06/2023 | 16:54:02 Thank you, Madam Chairman. Mr Paul GALLES, rapporteur, Ms Sviatlana TSIKHANOUSKAYA, The question we are addressing today is undoubtedly of the utmost importance: the challenges the Belarusians are facing in exile.

Further crises... 20/06/2022 | 16:06:44 Thank you, Madam President. Dear colleagues, Our daily life is poisoned and suffers from several evils. Racism and xenophobia are the main obstacles to the proper functioning of our society. It is a phenomenon that tends to normalise hatred towards people based on characteristics of skin colour, nationality or ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation or religion. In the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg – my home country – almost 50% of the residents do not have Luxembourgish nationality. Thanks to a... 25/04/2022 | 19:12:49 Thank you, President. Dear colleagues, In the last few decades we have witnessed an enormous spread of digital culture. Digitalisation has now taken over many areas of life, and its progress is unstoppable. And yet, its evolution is a double-edged sword. While digital culture is a source of enormous opportunities, it can also harm the most vulnerable among us: our children and young people. The expression "The world at your fingertips" aptly describes the current context. More than ever, we...
