Dear Colleagues, As the Russian Federation is waging an unprovoked and unjustified war of aggression on our continent, violating the rules of the international order let down after the Second World War and in gross violation of the sovereignty of Ukraine, talking about the role of women in war and peace is not a mere rhetorical exercise. It is our everyday reality as Europeans. It is our clear obligation to ponder this reality now here in the Council of Europe and as a... 21/06/2022 | 11:15:35 Thank you very much.

Dear Colleagues, Since the dawn of this century, we have been living the consequences of major global crises. After the 2008 financial crash, we had to realize the possible consequences of climate inaction. And now humanity faces a global pandemic that has disrupted our lives. In the case of globalization and climate change, children have been very vocal. With the leadership of Greta Thunberg, TIMES’s Person of the Year in 2019 for her activism in the fight against...
