28/01/2020 | 17:07:11 Thank you, Madam President. Ladies and gentlemen, I welcome the very comprehensive and balanced report by our colleague Lord George FOULKES on this very sensitive subject. In recent years, physical attacks on journalists have increased in Europe in states that are members of our Organisation. Indeed, 10 journalists have been killed since 2017. The 2019 annual report of the Council of Europe Platform to Enhance the Protection of Journalists notes a worrying increase in the number of alerts concer... 27/01/2020 | 15:28:49 Mr Speaker, First of all, I would like to congratulate Mrs MAURY-PASQUIER on the remarkable work she has done for our institution, which is not an easy job. And congratulations to our new President. I would like to welcome the very comprehensive and balanced report by our colleague, Tiny KOX and Lord David BLENCATHRA, on behalf of the ad hoc committee, which observed the early parliamentary elections held in Belarus on 17 November 2019, following President Lukashenko's decision to dissolve the H... 01/10/2019 | 10:53:52 Thank you very much, Madame President.

In 2018, more than 110,000 refugees were children alone and without families. Dangers to be faced first during their long journey, which pushes them to flee war and insecurity. As UNICEF notes, migrant and refugee children and women are regularly subjected to sexual violence, exploitation, abuse a... 24/06/2019 | 17:20:57 Thank you, Madam President, dear colleagues. After the collapse of the Soviet bloc, the Council of Europe brought all European countries together around common values centered on the respect for Human rights and the Rule of law. This is an undeniable success of our organisation, which has become a real forum for pan-European dialogue. Russia, for its part, joined the Council of Europe in 1996, thus demonstrating its desire to turn the page on the Cold War. But today, as the Council of Europe cel...
