26/01/2024 | 11:57:01 Thank you, Mister President. First of all, I'd like to reiterate my thanks to Mr Pierre-Alain FRIDEZ, not just for the Belgian-Swiss agreement, but for his excellent work, all the work and all the truth, as he said, that he brought to our Committee by organising this magnificent and deeply moving hearing. As Mr Pierre-Alain FRIDEZ said, children are victims of abuse, gratuitous acts of violence and mistreatment in public, private and sometimes religious institutions that were supposed to be... 25/01/2024 | 11:17:43 Mister Chairman, On behalf of the Committee on Social Affairs, Sustainable Development and Health, I'd like to say a few words about what we're talking about today. We're talking about the worst thing about war, in this case a war of Russian aggression. We're talking about children's lives. We're talking about wounded children.

Even if, as... 13/10/2023 | 12:10:17 Thank you, Madam Chair. It's going to be very complicated to respond to your many interventions in 4 minutes, but first I'd like to warmly thank you for your support for this report and, above all, for your support for its recommendations.

This is a personal opinion, so don't take it into account in your vote in a few minutes, as Ms STOICA isn't here. In any case I'll... 13/10/2023 | 11:13:11 Thank you, Madam Chair. Thank you all for staying on a Friday morning at the end of a very busy session. First of all, I'd like to apologise on behalf of Ms Diana STOICA, who is, unfortunately, ill at the moment. I send her my best wishes for a speedy recovery. I'm going to start by presenting her report on addictive behavior in children, before turning to mental health and well-being in children and adults. Ms Diana STOICA's report starts from an important premise. There is real concern... 23/06/2023 | 12:41:05 Thank you, Madam Chairman. I have the honour of being the last speaker for this report. I would like to sincerely thank Ms Edite ESTRELA for this report, but also for all the work she does in the Assembly, which is consistent in terms of the fight against discrimination and the fight for social rights. Many of my colleagues have told a story, so I wanted to tell you one too. It's the terrible story, in fact, of Belgium and many other countries, which suffered a natural disaster in 2021 when...
