20/06/2022 | 17:07:28 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Citizens are politically more interested in democracy, more inclined to vote and to abide by the law if political trust exists. Political trust is nothing but the citizen’s confidence in political institutions. It is what gives politics legitimacy. Trust is only established if words we speak are in line with the actions we act. Trust requires sincerity. This is where this report comes in. This report is an opportunity for us as politicians... 28/04/2022 | 16:08:44 Thank you very much. I'm going to pick up from where Mr Stefan SCHENNACH left. To safeguard our democracies we need to rebuild our economies. We need to rebuild them where we guarantee our social and economic rights so that people feel included, where they do not resent the other but rather realise that we're in it together.

A human rights defender who runs from court to court defending especially the social rights of the victimised, Can Atalay. A famous architect who has devoted her whole life to defending the right to city, as... 26/04/2022 | 18:52:30 Thank you very much. I'd like to thank all colleagues, who have contributed to, I think, this very fruitful debate. I'd like to start by saying, Lord GRIFFITHS, you have rightfully mentioned that we need to hear the voice of those who have experienced this unfortunate situation. Indeed, in the the hearing we had in the committee we were lucky enough to hear from both Equinet, as an institution, with regard to the experiences they have collected, as well as Professor Sam Friedman, who was able... 26/04/2022 | 17:45:46 Thank you very much. This report asks several critical questions. How do our circumstances at birth, or even pre-birth, determine outcomes of our lives? To what extent does being born in a certain neighbourhood or belonging to a certain social class impact our chances and life outcomes?
