20/11/2020 | 16:18:02 Mr President, On behalf of the Socialists, Democrats and Greens Group I would like to congratulate the rapporteur for this very diligent work. As was noted, these are dire times for gender equality. Indeed gender inequality has been and continues to be a major barrier to human progress and unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic has only made it worse. A backlash to women's rights is on the rise. We need deliberate efforts to overcome this barrier and we need to counter the backlash. Gender-based... 30/01/2020 | 16:55:38 Thank you very much Mr President. We have two very timely reports. I deeply congratulate the rapporteurs. The ILO estimates that there are 40 million people in modern slavery today prone to human trafficking. UN reports that one registered migrant child is reported dead or missing every day worldwide for the past five years. Human trafficking is nothing but exploitation. Migrants, especially women and children, face the highest risk. Children also face the risk of going missing. Therefore it... 29/01/2020 | 16:53:04 Thank you, Mr President. Dear Colleagues,  We are clearly at times of change and such times do require that institutions take steps to govern that change. Institutions are nothing but a set of rules that define incentives.

Hence, I think it deserves enthusiasm, with caution, but definite enthusiasm... 28/01/2020 | 19:41:31 Thank you very much. Extraordinary times actually call for extraordinary measures. Indeed these are times of extraordinary nature for democracy. If we want to hold on to democracy, we clearly have to hold on to a true freedom of press and a true environment of safety to journalists. I believe this report diligently does so and, hence, the resolution should be supported. Now, it shows that the issue is not one limited to a single country, not a single member state. It's not attacking countries... 04/10/2019 | 11:10:22 Thank you very much, Madam President. Let me start by reminding us what this report is truly about. It's not about refugees, it's specifically on labour migration. So it's about migration that has economic incentives in it, that seek employment and work. It's a report not about the receiving countries, which the focus is usually on, but it's about the countries that are sending millions of people abroad. Now, I'd like to take the attention to a wider issue, the main question we're asking. As...
