22/06/2022 | 18:58:12 Thank you, Mister President. Dear colleagues, We have just participated in a very intense and very dense debate on no less than three reports which were prepared in our Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination. I'll start by congratulating all three rapporteurs for having worked quickly and efficiently to respond to the urgent concern of the moment. It's another demonstration of the great capacity of reaction of our Assembly and of the Council of Europe itself. It's flexible in responding... 22/06/2022 | 16:10:35 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, First, I want to thank the rapporteurs for their excellent work and a complimentary work. I think it's really important that we're having this joint debate today.

We have indeed co‑operated closely with a plurality of actors within and outside the Council of Europe in order to... 25/01/2022 | 09:10:49 Dear chair, dear colleagues, On the 18 September trans hairdresser Ivanna Angeline Macedo Silva was found stabbed to death in her apartment in Paris. This brutal murder is just a most recent among 14 tragic killings of trans people reported in our member States between November 2020 and 2021. As we pay our respect to Ivanna and to all those who have died in the past year, let us remember that still today LGBTI+ people face hate crimes, verbal and physical attacks, harassment, discrimination...
