13/10/2023 | 12:51:07 Thank you very much, Mr President, For more than two years, when the Taliban took power in Afghanistan, women have been almost completely banished and disappeared from the public sphere. They are excluded from the labour market, they have no right to education, and in some areas of Afghanistan the education of girls over the age of ten is completely forbidden. This also leads to the fact that girls hardly have any perspectives, that the existence of girls and women has become extremely... 12/10/2023 | 19:22:17 Dear President, Dear colleagues, The topic of this urgent debate Report is “Call for the immediate release of Osman Kavala”. I was appointed as rapporteur on Monday, the same day that our Assembly awarded Mr Osman Kavala with the Václav Havel Human Rights Prize.

Access to the internet, to the global network, has become so essential that some people are even talking about a human right to the internet. I also take note of the fact that others smell a world conspiracy behind this, where the World Trade Organization (WTO) or the World Health Organization WHO are pulling some strings and alternatives are to be sought. Perhaps you should try it once with carrier pigeons. It could be quite an alternative, which could... 21/06/2023 | 16:00:43 Thank you, Mister President. Multilateralism costs money, a lot of money, indeed. It offers gains. Combatants meet at the table, and not on the battlefield. That means that multilateralism not only saves our values. It saves lives. It saves the environment. It saves societies that otherwise would be destroyed.
