21/06/2023 | 18:41:37 Thank you, Madam Chair. I was hoping that this debate would not take the road it took, because this was supposed to be a debate about integration, without questioning the reasons why we have migrants in our countries or refugees. Indeed, migration or rather immigration for most of the European countries is a reality that will remain. Anybody who thinks that we can create fortress Europe is wrong. I'm sorry to dispel this dream you have. In my view at least, it would be really opportunistic... 21/06/2023 | 16:53:41 Thank you, Mister Chair. Indeed, you did, and all the commendations for the flawless pronunciation. Ladies and gentlemen, Dear colleagues, First of all, when addressing you and when talking about integration, I want to highlight the definition of "integration". In the debates we have in the Committee on Migration, Refugees and Displaced Persons, and in general in this august house, we usually talk about assimilation, inclusion, and integration. I just want to underline how different these... 24/04/2023 | 15:15:19 Thank you Mister Chair, you already mentioned the highlight of the mission, I am sure. My dear colleagues, I am presenting this report, as mentioned before, on behalf of Mr Joseph O'REILLY of Ireland who, unfortunately, is not present in Strasbourg this week.

Excellent pronunciation of my name. Esteemed colleagues, It was mentioned here in the debate by the Greek colleague, that South-Eastern Europe or the Balkans has been a powder keg – or called the powder keg – of Europe. I would put it a bit differently. The south-east of Europe has been an exporter of instability, and unfortunately still is. We in Croatia, me personally, and all of us, should be concerned with the recent developments, the tensions rising, the messages... 13/10/2022 | 16:14:48 Thank you very much. Dear Colleagues, Often when we talk in this hemicycle, we talk about the values of our institution and let me just quickly remind you what those are: democracy, rule of law, and indeed, human rights. When we talk about human rights, what about the right to love, the right to be loved and the right to express love? It is time to sincerely ask ourselves what kind of society are we if we forbid love. Is there a future for such a society? I would say no. Now, the rhetoric we...
