13/10/2023 | 13:15:07 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) As Council of Europe Member States we have an unyielding responsibility towards our younger generations. We must not only work tirelessly to make the world better, kinder and more livable, but we must also ensure that our children and young adults have all the necessary tools at their disposal to navigate their way through whatever life throws at them. Not only the uncertainties and anxieties that naturally are a universal experience of our... 20/06/2023 | 19:36:16 Thank you, Mister Chair. The Covid-19 pandemic was a time of great struggles, change, and loss. The challenges we faced, individually and collectively, exceeded anything most of us would have ever expected to face in these modern times. And while today we are back in our fully fledged ‘normality’, we would be naive, to say the least, not to recognise that this unique and gruelling period of recent history has provided us with an abundance of lessons to be learnt.

Thank you Mr President I believe in empathy, and compassion and I would hope this is a guiding principle in all that we do as parliamentarians. I also believe in acting pragmatically, with conviction, and with principle. My country, right at the South of our European continent and often the first point of refuge for migrants, has saved thousands of lives over the years. We host one of the largest communities of refugees and beneficiaries of... 23/06/2022 | 10:33:54 Mister President, It is a privilege to be here today amongst all of you participating in matters which pertain directly to my country. Malta is the smallest EU member State and one of the smallest at the Council of Europe level. We all hold a distinct sense of pride. It is extremely significant for us to have such an important role in something so much larger than our small island. I know that my country has been the focus of some attention at a European and international level. Today we come...
