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.

These references must be submitted to the Assembly for ratification under Article 26.3 of the rules. Are there any objections? No? There are not. The references are therefore approved. We must now proceed to vote on the other... 29/09/2021 | 18:27:14 Mr President, Dear colleagues, The accumulation of extreme weather events is already impacting the whole world. However, some regions are affected significantly more than others. Although the developed countries of the West are not immune to natural disasters, the consequences for developing countries are far more devastating. It is often the most vulnerable populations, those who are already in a precarious situation, who are hit hardest by crises. We saw this with the Covid-19 pandemic and...
