25/01/2024 | 10:48:55 Dear colleagues, It's so hard to talk about this topic. It's so hard to listen and to know the numbers, but they are all human lives. It's so hard to think about what I want to say to you today, also in being a mother myself, how hard it is to look in the children's eyes every time Ukraine is bombed. Today we talk about the biggest tragedies. But there are tragedies that may be called in a different way, but they are also tragedies. Many children of Ukraine are currently away from their... 24/01/2024 | 16:10:59 Dear colleagues, It is very important that we talked about policies and the challenges that our economies currently have. The OECD is working on that as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation. I want to bring you to history, because I think it is very important that in this organisation we remind ourselves about the purpose. As well as this organisation, the OECD was created also for managing recovery after the Second World War for different European countries. Since then, many new... 23/01/2024 | 19:51:34 Dear colleagues, after the last debate, have you felt the temperature in this house? Have you seen how much the discussion and debate is polarised?

This report, for me, is not a report about migration; it's a test of our commitment to protecting... 12/10/2023 | 16:22:29 Dear colleagues, We definitely entered the times when simply there is no place for a normal vacation. There is simply no opportunity to sleep in peace. It is absolutely true as Mr Serhii SOBOLIEV believes that he does not remember any single plenary week in the Council of Europe when there were three debates connected to the current war. Wars in different places. Unfortunately, well, it feels like the West went on vacation some years ago in 2008, in August, when Russia invaded Georgia. Now we... 11/10/2023 | 18:05:33 Dear colleagues, dear rapporteur, Definitely I want to congratulate Mr Pieter OMTZIGT for opening this Pandora's box in this Hall, but I think the problem is that this Pandora's box is still quite small because the problem is much bigger than that. It's not only about one spyware app. It's about the reality that we live in. During recent years, when I hear different conversations about the role of artificial intelligence, about different software, I often have very mixed feelings, because...
