28/01/2021 | 13:30:54 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear President, Dear Colleagues, Ethnic profiling is a kind of racial stereotyping which causes to single out a specific part of society on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, or place of origin. Unfortunately, it does not only take place in policing services but also in law enforcement institutions, the education systems and the healthcare services. Behaving a person differently on these grounds clearly constitutes... 27/01/2021 | 18:33:46 Thank you, Mr President, dear colleagues, I would like to thank the rapporteur for her effort addressing this important issue.

Disinformation campaigns, manipulation of information and hate speech have become more common in member states, especially in election periods. Most notably, the Cambridge Analytica scandal has revealed the degree of how our privacy and free will are under attack. On the other... 30/01/2020 | 19:59:36 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear President, Dear Colleagues, The recent turmoil and escalating conflict in Libya does not only pose a threat to Libyans themselves, but to Europe as well. The current affairs debate allows us as members of PACE to call on all states to ensure that the crisis in Libya is solved without further bloodshed.
