Speeches since 2019

23/01/2024 | 19:48:11 Thank you, Mister Chairman. It's difficult, ladies and gentlemen, Mister Rapporteur, to tackle this subject because it's so animated; animated, for some political players, by an opportunistic desire to lay the blame for various misfortunes on those who are often perceived as different. It's also animated for many others, driven by fear and the dread of downgrading taken for granted. Dear colleagues, the rapporteur has tried to identify the factors that encourage discriminatory discourse and... 21/06/2023 | 17:18:12 Thank you Mister Chairman. Ladies and gentlemen, rapporteurs, Dear colleagues, On behalf of the Socialist, Democrat and Green Group, I would first of all like to thank the rapporteurs for their work, their reports and their draft resolutions, which are very important because migration is both the illustration of a world on the move and the consequence of profound political, economic, social, military and environmental changes. By 2020, Europe had already welcomed some 87 million international... 21/06/2023 | 16:28:12 Thank you, Mr President. Madame rapporteur, Ladies and Gentlemen, The reports and draft resolutions we are discussing today are important. They are important because, on the one hand, the budgets reflect an adaptation to events and developments in the institutions of the Council of Europe; on the other hand, they must be put into perspective with the challenges of the moment. For the period 2022 to 2025, the Council's budget has been adjusted to €479 million. First of all, I would like to... 25/01/2023 | 12:02:44 Thank you, Madam Chair, thank you Mr rapporteur. Dear colleagues, I would like to thank our rapporteur Mr Duncan BAKER for his findings and proposals regarding public health applications featuring tracking technologies and automated data processing. He places his recommendations in a triple perspective: The balance between the presumed advantages of tracking in relation to a benefit that is in fact poorly evaluated and involves significant disadvantages, particularly in terms of invasion of... 24/01/2023 | 11:09:47 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, First of all, I would like to thank our fellow rapporteur, Ms Petra BAYR, for her findings and proposals on the important and sensitive subject of conflict-related sexual violence. Her recommendations are based on a fourfold perspective: the definition of these crimes by international law, but also by the gender approach and the ages primarily concerned by these crimes; the various forms that they take with regard to populations attacked or victimised... 26/01/2022 | 12:18:12 Good morning, Madam President, Dear colleagues, First of all, I would like to thank our colleague the rapporteur for his proposals concerning sport policies in times of crisis. His recommendations have a double dimension: to include sport in the framework of recovery plans and in sustainable development. In the first case, the recovery must therefore address the sports sector, both industrial and service, as well as amateur and leisure – I was going to say pleasure. The report makes demands... 29/09/2021 | 18:17:20 Mr President, Ladies and gentlemen, I would first like to thank Ms Edite ESTRELA for her report on combating inequalities in a healthy and safe environment, and Mr Olivier BECHT, who spoke to us earlier in his report about environmental research policies. I would like to thank all the other rapporteurs since this morning, Mr George PAPANDREOU, our colleague Mr Pierre-Alain FRIDEZ and Mr Ziya ALTUNYALDIZ, who spoke to us earlier, who have made a significant contribution to raising the stakes... 29/09/2021 | 11:08:18 Thank you, Mr President. Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to begin by thanking the four rapporteurs for their analyses and proposals on subjects which, in the end, work in a complementary way on the climate crisis. I would particularly like to highlight two reports; that of our colleague Mr Simon MOUTQUIN, rapporteur, to thank him for his proposals to strengthen the Council of Europe's provisions and conventions on the right to a healthy environment; and that of Mrs Edite ESTRELA to thank... 28/09/2021 | 12:09:21 Thank you, Madam President. Before meeting you again in the Chamber, I should like to begin by thanking the rapporteur for her excellent report and for her desire to see socio-economic inequalities better assessed and better taken into account by a proactive policy on the part of States. It was a challenge and, as we know, there were links between human rights and economic and sustainable development. The United Nations, which is responsible for these issues, is both normative and statistical... 22/06/2021 | 11:50:05 (FR) Dear President, ladies and gentlemen, First of all, I would like to thank our colleague for his report, which proposes to strike a balance between the introduction of such a health pass, the protection of people's rights and the implications in terms of discrimination between citizens that could result from it. The issue of such a pass, provided that the conditions of non-contagiousness verified after testing or vaccination are met, would make it possible to escape all or some of the...
