It is a sensitive subject at least on two counts: first, because the apprehension by law enforcement agencies of people on ethnic grounds alone constitutes discrimination and goes against our values; it is also sensitive because, as the report points out, ethnic profiling can undermine the... 27/01/2021 | 18:15:38 Thank you President, colleagues, First of all, I would like to thank our colleague Ms Alexandra LOUIS for the quality of her report.

I am witness to the many intentions of French and local elected representatives to pay... 26/06/2019 | 18:44:39 Thank you, Madam President. (FR) Rapporteur, ladies and gentlemen, Malta is an island, a very beautiful island, an island at the heart of European history, at the heart of Europe itself. Because if we look at what we call the concentric circles of integration within the European Union, this country that has been independent since 1964, immediately in 1965 joined the Council of Europe, acceded to its convention.
