While we are benefiting from technology we remain vulnerable to it at the same time. Disinformation campaigns, manipulation of information and hate speech have become more common in member states, especially in election periods.

Protection of Human Rights would be jeopardised if the independence of these institutions was not sufficiently safeguarded. In addition, taking all necessary steps to ensure access to these two institutions by citizens is... 12/04/2019 | 12:47:22 I want to take this opportunity to raise the impact of the recent trade war among nations – an arbitrary practice that is impacting on democracy, the rule of law and human rights.
