11/10/2022 | 20:13:41 Madam President and Dear Colleagues, As an MP of a country defending the EU's 1 300-km external border, I support the description given by the notion of free to public policy or public security or to national security in this legal framework.  However, I agree with the rapporteur that the aim of this notion is not to prevent political dissidents from entering the European Union.  According to the European Convention on Human Rights, anyone entering a member State has the same human rights and... 11/10/2022 | 19:20:20 Madam President, Dear Colleagues, Thank you to our Swedish colleague, who raises a very serious and sometimes silenced issue as well. Thank you. It's a lot. It's a really interesting report. The report underlines the role of political actors in preventing stigmatisation. This is a meaningful aspect. We can learn to meet differences only by facing difference. Some people have no experience of meeting Muslims. People also often still often wrongfully link Islam to extremism, such as fears of... 22/06/2022 | 18:00:51 Mister President, dear colleagues, I want to thank you for the excellent report on women in peace reconciliation. Although I find the message of the report very important, I hoped for more concrete proposals.

Ending the war, sorting out human rights violations committed in Ukraine and prosecuting those responsible is our main goal. But other human rights issues also need our attention. At the start of the war there was great concern over graphic war-related content spreading on TikTok before the eyes of children. Yet, the problem of children seeing and accessing disturbing content... 03/10/2019 | 21:05:11 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Madam President, dear colleagues, Thank you Ms Blondin for this excellent report. This is a difficult subject because it is a personal experience with many dimensions. However, I welcome that we can openly talk about childbirth-related pain, fears and traumas in this Assembly. Unfortunately, obstetric violence is an often-overlooked type of violence against women. I would like to raise my own views in this matter, because this is an important...
