29/09/2021 | 11:01:32 Thank you, Mr President. Ladies and gentlemen, rapporteurs, colleagues, For the third time, our Assembly is holding a full day's debate on an essential and particularly topical human rights issue. After the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects, and then artificial intelligence a year ago, we are now dealing with a set of challenges posed by climate change for our societies, our democratic systems, our states and multilateralism in general. In this respect, I would like to congratulate all the... 28/09/2021 | 19:26:30 Thank you, Mister President. In the eyes of those who commit or justify them, so-called "honour" crimes aim to rehabilitate a community – family, cultural or ethnic – that has been "sullied" by the victim's behaviour. According to them, it is therefore a legitimate act, which obviously cannot be tolerated or excused under so-called extenuating circumstances. I say this here: no murder, kidnapping, abduction, mutilation, forced marriage or suicide under the pressure of the social or family... 28/09/2021 | 18:02:16 Thank you, Mr President.

That's all there is to... 28/09/2021 | 17:18:27 Madam Chair of the Committee on Rules of Procedure, Madam Chairperson of the Committee on Equality and Rapporteur for opinion and colleagues. I would like to begin by recalling the origin of this report. At the opening of the first session in January 2020, the credentials of six national delegations were challenged on the grounds that they did not include the required minimum number of women, which is supposed to correspond to their percentage in their home parliament. We were faced with a... 27/09/2021 | 17:03:21 Madame President, rapporteur, ladies and gentlemen, The clashes that took place in Nagorno-Karabakh in 2020 were a reminder, if one were needed, that so-called "frozen" conflicts are still conflicts. We are not here today to talk about responsibilities or geopolitics: the UN does that very well. However, and this is the whole point of today's debate, we have a duty to look very carefully at the humanitarian consequences of such conflicts, because they directly affect people whose most basic...
