The Covid-19 pandemic has shown the vulnerabilities of our global healthcare systems. It has laid bare the consequences of fragmented approaches and unilateral actions in addressing public health emergencies. It is time to embrace a new paradigm, recognising the interconnectedness of health, the environment, and social justice. The health of our planet is directly linked to our... 26/04/2023 | 19:38:32 Thank you, President. Since the European Court of Human Rights was established, thousands of judgment on cases related to human rights violations across Europe have been issued. However, issuing judgments alone is not enough. It is equally important to ensure that these judgments are implemented effectively by member States.

Estimates published by the World Health Organization indicate that globally about 1 in 3 women have been subject to violence. As the rapporteur said at the beginning of this debate: this convention saves lives. The Istanbul Convention remains the best international framework for protecting women from... 24/01/2023 | 10:21:56 I would like to compliment the rapporteur for her great work and this important report. I would like to emphasise that war inflicts damage on all people, the environment, cultures, and civilisations. Aggressors that afflict war on other countries are showing contempt for life itself. One of the most degrading sides of war is conflict-related sexual violence. It is one of the worst atrocities of war, and it is used to humiliate, violate and ruin the minds and bodies of victims. Women are...
