Oggetto: Omicidi d'onore familiare in Turchia. La famiglia aveva infatti deciso che ucciderla era l'unico modo per lavare l'onta di una gravidanza indesiderata. Non ritiene che questi atteggiamenti siano del tutto incompatibili con il modo di vivere dell'UE alla quale Ankara intende aderire?

Oggetto: Centri di accoglienza per le donne turche. In Turchia i centri di accoglienza per le donne vittime di violenza sono 81 dato , esigui se si considera che la Turchia conta circa 70 milioni di abitanti. Non ritiene che il governo turco debba creare un numero di centri di accoglienza sufficienti e uniformemente distribuiti in tutto il paese, conformemente alle disposizioni della Convenzione del Consiglio d'Europa del maggio ?
Oggetto: Prospettiva per le donne in Turchia. Nella sua risoluzione del maggio il Parlamento europeo invitava la Turchia a organizzare iniziative di sensibilizzazione con l'obiettivo di combattere la violenza contro le donne, compresa quella domestica. Inoltre, la risoluzione considerava limitati i progressi della Turchia nel migliorare e attuare il quadro legislativo al fine di garantire l'equa partecipazione delle donne alla vita sociale, economica e politica.
A year-old girl in Kahta, a village in the Province of Adiyaman in south-east Turkey, was buried alive in the garden of her home by family-members for having close friendships with boys. Her father and grandfather have been arrested for the murder. Under questioning, the father admitted that the family were unhappy that the girl had been associating with friends of the male gender. How does the Commission view this regrettable occurrence, which breaches the right of association and, more generally, the fundamental rights of women?
Can the Commission provide a comprehensive list of honour crimes perpetrated in Turkey? In south-east Turkey, a nineteen-year-old girl who was eight months pregnant has been strangled with electrical cable by her brothers, who then threw her body into an eighteen-metre-deep ravine. The family had actually decided that killing her was the only way of washing away the shame of an unwanted pregnancy. Some studies suggest that nearly 1 women are killed every year for reasons associated with family honour; furthermore, honour crimes are seen as a standard and socially justifiable practice in some parts of Turkey.
Does it not consider that such attitudes are utterly incompatible with the way of life in the EU, which Ankara is hoping to join? How many people have been found guilty of such crimes, and what sentences have been handed down? According to the figures for , Turkey has 81 shelters for abused women, which is very few for country with a population of around 70 million.
Can the Commission provide updated information regarding the number of women's shelters in Turkey, indicating their geographical distribution and the number of women seeking refuge there? Does it not consider that the Turkish Government should provide an adequate number of such shelters, uniformly distributed throughout the country, in accordance with the Council of Europe Convention of ?
In its resolution of 22 May , Parliament called on Turkey to organise awareness-raising activities to combat violence against women, including domestic violence. It also noted that Turkey was making limited progress in improving its legislative framework and implementing it in such a way as to ensure equal participation by women in social, economic and political life.
How is the Commission working with the Turkish authorities to address these issues? The Commission monitors women's rights and gender equality issues closely and provides its analysis in the context of its yearly Progress Reports on Turkey. All major developments in the area of women's rights and gender equality will be assessed in the Commission's next Progress Report, due in the autumn of Although the legal framework guaranteeing women's rights and gender equality is broadly in place, ensuring them in practice remains a key challenge.
Amongst them, honour killings remain a serious problem. Turkey, as a candidate country for accession to the EU, needs to guarantee in law and practice fundamental rights according to the European Convention on Human Rights and the case law of the European Court of Human Rights.
The Commission raises all these issues with the Turkish authorities on all appropriate occasions. Oggetto: Epurazione di centinaia di poliziotti in Turchia. All'indomani dei colloqui con i rappresentati dell'UE, il Premier Erdogan, a dispetto di quanto promesso, ha sollevato dall'incarico agenti di polizia nell'ambito della cosiddetta «Tangentopoli del Bosforo». Come ha intenzione di reagire la Commissione di fronte a questo ennesimo disimpegno da parte di Erdogan?
Non ritiene la Commissione che questo atteggiamento ambivalente debba suggerire un esame molto approfondito di tutti gli aspetti relativi alla effettiva realizzazione in Turchia di un sistema di giustizia e di polizia che corrisponda all'acquis europeo?
In quanto paese candidato tenuto al rispetto dei criteri politici di adesione, ivi compresa l'applicazione dello Stato di diritto, la Turchia deve prendere tutte le misure necessarie per garantire che le denunce di illeciti siano oggetto di indagini trasparenti e imparziali, senza discriminazioni o preferenze.
Va evitata qualsiasi azione tale da compromettere l'efficacia delle indagini. How does the Commission intend to react to yet another example of lack of commitment on the part of Erdogan? Does the Commission not consider that this ambivalent attitude suggests the need for an exhaustive analysis of all aspects of the effective creation of a police and justice system in Turkey which corresponds to the acquis communautaire [body of EC law]?
The Commission has expressed serious concern about the removal of a large number of police officers and prosecutors from their duties due to its possible impact on the independence, impartiality, effectiveness and efficiency of the judiciary. As a candidate country committed to the political criteria of accession, including the application of the rule of law, Turkey needs to take all the necessary measures to ensure that allegations of wrongdoing are addressed without discrimination or preference in a transparent and impartial manner.
Any action which undermines the effectiveness of investigations into these allegations should be avoided. The current situation demonstrates once more that the EU needs to be engaged more rather than less with Turkey, including in the framework of Chapter 23 — Judiciary and fundamental rights of the accession negotiations, as this is the most effective way of tackling these issues. Oggetto: Legge turca in contrasto con l'etica medica. Da fonti di stampa si apprende che il governo di Erdogan ha promulgato una nuova legge che vieta ai medici di prestare pronto soccorso ai manifestanti feriti se non hanno prima ricevuto una regolare autorizzazione da parte del governo stesso.
Come valuta la Commissione questo increscioso provvedimento che costituisce palese violazione del giuramento di Ippocrate, oltre ad essere in totale contrasto con il diritto europeo? Secondo la Commissione, l'articolo 46 della legge n. La relazione del sui progressi compiuti dalla Turchia 1 pag. We learn from press sources that the Erdogan Government has passed a new law which prohibits doctors from giving first aid to wounded demonstrators unless they have been issued with a valid authorisation from the government.
How does the Commission view this regrettable measure, which constitutes a manifest violation of the Hippocratic oath and also a total breach of European law? On 2 January , the Republic of Turkey signed a health bill into law. Article 46 of this bill will criminalise emergency medical care and punish doctors with heavy fines and imprisonment for simply assisting Turkish citizens in need of emergency medical care.
Such vague and unnecessary conditions regarding who can provide medical care and when will result in the arbitrary arrest and punishment of emergency medical responders. International standards on human rights and medical ethics make it clear that doctors, nurses, paramedics and other health workers must be able to carry out their professional duties to provide emergency medical care to those in need without interference or fear of reprisal.
The Ministry of Health and the Turkish Government have an obligation to support and protect health workers, who are simply adhering to their moral, ethical and professional responsibilities to provide care to the sick and injured. In the Commission's view, Article 46 of the Law No on the organisation and duties of the Ministry of Health and amending other laws could have a potentially damaging effect on the delivery of medical services during emergency situations.
The Commission will continue to raise its concerns regarding this provision, including in terms of medical ethics and availability of emergency medical care in Turkey, with the Turkish authorities at the appropriate occasion. Furthermore, the Commission has been constantly encouraging Turkish authorities to launch extensive consultations with all relevant stakeholders before adopting crucial legislation. This has been reflected as well in our Progress Report 2 on Turkey p.
Les jeunes sont la principale cible de ce genre de mouvement. Euroscepticism is on the rise in the EU, with many using the crisis as a pretext to engage in populist rhetoric. Whilst Europe may not be perfect, it is not the source of all our problems. Information holds the key to reversing this tendency to blame the EU for everything. Young people are the main targets of the Eurosceptics, and we should not forget that these same young EU citizens are tomorrow's leaders.
Has the Commission already set up programmes to inform and educate people about the European Union? The Commission is fully aware of the importance of providing EU citizens — and particularly young people — with material that explains how the EU works and what it does. Furthermore, the Commission is communicating more and more through digital channels, which are particularly popular among young people.
The institution is present on the major social media platforms and has created two websites specifically dedicated to this particular audience: Teachers' Corner and Kids' Corner. The Visitors Centre receives around 60 young visitors a year. In EU officials going back to their schools met with 65 students in 22 Member States.
In the same year over 1 million copies were ordered of the two school publications, and Teachers' Corner and Kids' Corner received around 12 million page views. The Commission has the funding required to maintain and regularly update these information tools. The European Union recently launched the Horizon programme, which will enable it to advance research and innovation — major drivers of its economic recovery, helping to make European companies more competitive. Horizon has a budget of EUR 80 for the years Answer given by Commissioner Geoghegan-Quinn on behalf of the Commission.
Following the successful conclusion of negotiations on Horizon , the Commission, in full respect of the legislative acts, adopted the first work programmes and published the first calls for proposals in December These work programmes, including deadlines, budgets for the activities, information on the modalities of the calls and related activities — such as the evaluation of proposals and model grant agreements, are available on public websites 6.
Under Article 5 of the Treaty on European Union, competences are divided between the Member States and the Union in line with the principle of subsidiarity. This is the case when it comes to sexual and reproductive health and rights, which fall within the competence of the Member States. The organisation and financing of health services and medical care and the definition of health policies is a matter for the Member States.
This applies to all health services, including those related to sexual health. The Charter of Fundamental rights in its Article 35 enshrines the right for everybody to access preventive healthcare and to benefit from medical treatment under the conditions established by national law. Whilst respecting the national competences of Member States, the Commission actively supports governments to ensure that health systems have the capacity to deal effectively with health needs, to share good practices and to deploy resources in the most beneficial and effective way.
I have been contacted by a constituent regarding the case of Krishna Maharaj, a British citizen who is currently serving a sentence of life imprisonment in South Florida for double murder the initial death sentence was overturned in I would like to ask the Commission whether it is aware of this case and whether it has made any representations to the US authorities on this matter? British citizen Krishna Maharaj aged 75 was sentenced to death in in Florida for two murders that were carried out not by him, but by operatives of Colombian drug cartels with links to organised crime in the USA and Jamaica.
Despite this, the state of Florida continues to block the examination of important fingerprint evidence, thereby both preventing the potential release of an innocent man and protecting the drug cartels which were responsible for the murders. Can the Commission advise as to its official reaction to this troubling case, and whether any representations will be made to the national authorities? In , the European Union, joined by Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, filed an amicus curiae brief with the US Supreme Court supporting Mr Maharaj in his request for review and reconsideration of his conviction and sentence.
This was done on account of the violation of his rights to consular notification and assistance, as the United Kingdom, country of which Mr Maharaj is a citizen, was made aware of Mr Maharaj's case only in October , almost a year after his conviction. Despite a number of international conventions to reduce the impact of armed conflict on children, figures from the United Nations suggest there are still child soldiers worldwide.
Taking place on 12 February, Red Hand Day, also known as the International Day against the Use of Child Soldiers, is an annual commemoration which aims to raise awareness of the plight of child soldiers worldwide. What action is the Commission taking to address the short, medium and long-term impact of armed conflict on children? What action is being taken to ensure not only the demobilisation and disarmament of children but also their reintegration into society? There are currently 8 states listed by the UN for recruiting and using children in armed conflict.
The EU believes that the international community should continue to tackle the issue of child recruitment and use by non-State armed groups that represent a vast majority of perpetrators of violations against children. The Council is discussing in which pilot countries the EU will support the conclusions and the implementation of the action plans signed by the UN and relevant governments or non-State actors, including in the context of peace-talks.
The intention is to include support to children affected by armed conflict in the assistance programming documents for 7. The most urgent needs of children affected by armed conflict are covered by the EU's humanitarian aid. For example, the EU's Children for Peace initiative — a legacy of the EU's Nobel Prize — is specially designed to provide education to children in emergencies 8. The longer-term impact of conflict on children is addressed through various development instruments 9.
These projects are implemented with different partners, based on their respective expertise. For example, in Myanmar, the EU is working closely with the ILO due to its expertise in socioeconomic reintegration of children associated with armed groups or forces. The document almost entirely ignores beach establishments, when in fact these are very common in France and Italy in particular and are untapped sources of employment.
These establishments enable more accurate management of coastal environments and are often located in areas that are very popular with local people and tourists. They are therefore extremely vigilant with regard to marine pollution and to the quality of bathing water. Owing to their geographical location, they are highly sensitive to storms and to changes in the coastal landscape.
The EU Recommendation on Integrated Coastal Management 13 and the Protocol on Integrated Coastal Zone Management to the Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment and the Coastal Region of the Mediterranean 14 encourage Member States to take the necessary actions to engage with appropriate stakeholders in relation to the development, implementation and monitoring of their coastal policies.
It is up to Member States how engagement with stakeholders shall be achieved. This obligation is also reflected in the upcoming Directive on Maritime Spatial Planning, which will require land-sea interactions to be taken into account but leaves the responsibility for effecting this to Member States. The directive will also include provisions for public participation. The Commission is keen that environmental responsibilities should be embraced by all citizens and is very aware of the important role that coastal tourism can play in creating sustainable jobs and in encouraging action against marine pollution.
Objet: Fin du libre choix de l'assurance maladie des frontaliers. The French Government intends to put an end to the existing dispensation for French nationals who work in Switzerland, which allows them to choose between the Swiss social security system, the French system and private insurance. As of 1 June , all French nationals working across the border will be covered by the French social security general fund universal medical cover, CMU.
However, this arbitrary decision will have an impact on the daily lives of these workers and undermines the agreements on freedom of movement that were signed with Switzerland in Is this unilateral change by the French Government compatible with Community law and the agreements that have been signed with Switzerland, a member of the European Economic Area? Does this double taxation not constitute a restriction on the free movement of workers? The EU rules on the coordination of social security systems 22 apply to Switzerland since 1 June in accordance with the Agreement between the European Community and the Swiss Confederation The Annex II of this Agreement, related to social security coordination, foresees an exception to the general principle of lex loci laboris Consequently, persons subject to Swiss legal provisions, may, on request 25 , be exempted from compulsory insurance in Switzerland if and as long as they are resident in e.
France A person, subject to Swiss compulsory sickness insurance, who chooses to be covered by the French sickness insurance, has an option to be insured in a private or statutory scheme. From the beginning, this option was considered as a temporary derogation proposed by the French legislation The provisions will come automatically to an end as the said article sets its own time limit of 12 years 1 June EC law in the field of social security provides for the coordination and not the harmonisation of the Member States' national social security systems.
This means that each Member State is free to determine the details of its own social security system, including which benefits shall be provided, the conditions of eligibility, how these benefits are calculated and how many contributions should be paid. Poglavlje 6. Odlukom C od 6.
The agreement also clearly stipulates that phase 0 of the project covers only the preliminary activities of preparing the site and the ancillary facilities. Chapter 6 consists of an appendix listing the EU directives relating to landfills, waste, and environmental protection with which the project has to comply.
Will the Commission call in an expert to examine the current situation on the ground? If it proves to be the case that the phase temporary storage permits have been issued in breach of the agreement and the directive, and that no study has been carried out on the environmental impact of temporary landfilling of waste, will the Croatian authorities be penalised and a decision taken to prohibit the further disposal of unauthorised waste in landfill cells?
The environmental impact assessment was prepared 13 years ago, which assumed that sorting and composting technology would be applied. What are the chances of the Commission taking urgent steps for a technological, economic and environmental audit of the project?
The Commission has received a complaint regarding alleged breaches of EU legislation in the implementation of the whole project. The Commission is examining this complaint but it is too early to say whether any audit or expert visit is required. The Commission receives regular reports on the EU part of the project. No particular irregularities have been identified yet. The Commission will remain in regular contact with the Croatian authorities regarding the implementation of this major project and will ensure that the project shall operate in accordance with the terms agreed in the co-financing decision.
Oggetto: Tutela UE della chiesa emersa dal lago di Nicea. Una chiesa che risale a circa anni fa D. La Commissione ha intenzione di stanziare dei fondi per gli studi archeologici e la manutenzione dell'edificio cristiano? Queste conclusioni rimangono valide. A church dating from around 1 years ago AD has been discovered following archaeological excavations carried out in Lake Iznik, known to Christians by the name of Nicaea, located in the Turkish province of Bursa, south of Istanbul.
It is likely that these are the remains of the Church of Saint Peter, and further studies and excavations are planned in order to confirm its age and to carry out any other research. Is the Commission in a position to guarantee that Turkey will respect this warning, together with the right to religious freedom, in relation to which it is not yet in compliance with the ECHR? Does the Commission intend to allocate funds to the archaeological study and maintenance of this Christian building?
If so, how much funding does it intend to provide, to whom and in what period of time? The Commission reports on the issues related to the freedom of thought, conscience and religion, as well as on the issues related to property rights in its annual Progress Reports on Turkey.
In this respect, in the Progress Report 33 the Commission noted efforts to intensify dialogue with non-Muslim religious communities. The Commission also recalled that an ECHR-compatible legal framework has yet to be established on matters of faith. With regard to property rights, Turkey needs to ensure full respect for all property rights, including those of non-Muslim communities. These findings remain valid. In line with Article of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the EU can take actions in the sphere of culture and in this respect foster cooperation with third countries.
Assistance to Turkey is provided through the Instrument for Pre-accession assistance, which primary aims at supporting the progressive alignment with EU standards and policies with a view to membership. Within the framework of good neighbourly relations and supporting dialogue between civil societies from Turkey and the EU, the Commission has been financing exceptionally pilot actions relating to archaeological studies and maintenance of cultural heritage sites.
Oggetto: Rapporti economici tra la Turchia e altri paesi. Il ministero dell'Economia turco ha invitato gli imprenditori a non prendere contatti con partner in paesi «sensibili», se non in casi eccezionali e con l'avvallo dello stesso dicastero in coordinamento con quello degli Esteri. La nota del ministero dell'Economia non precisa quali siano i paesi politicamente «sensibili» e le circostanze da valutare prima di intraprendere contatti economici con tali paesi.
Quali sono le circostanze che devono essere considerate per poter intraprendere o meno contatti con tali paesi? La Commissione non dispone di alcun elemento in merito alla questione sollevata dall'onorevole deputato. Is the Commission aware of these restrictions imposed by the Turkish Ministry of the Economy? What are the circumstances which must be considered in order to be able to initiate contacts with those countries?
The Commission cannot find any trace of the issue to which the Honourable Member refers. La giustizia turca ha individuato l'esecutore e il mandante ma non la «mente» dell'omicidio che pare tuttora coperto dallo Stato. Can the Commission shed any light on this murder, also taking into account the scant regard shown by Turkey in protecting the freedom of the press and freedom of expression which journalists are having to face?
The Commission is aware of the issues raised by the Honourable member, follows them closely and reports on them extensively including in its yearly Progress Report on Turkey. Oggetto: Pressioni della Turchia sulla Germania. Non ritiene che questo atteggiamento possa essere utilizzato anche nei confronti di altre procedure di adesione?
He remarked that citizens of Turkish origin have become an important part of German society: in fact Germany is home to the largest community of Turkish origin in Europe, about three million people. Does it not believe that this attitude can also be used in connection with other accession procedures? The Commission sees no harm in the efforts of candidate countries to make the case for their EU accession with Member States, including by highlighting existing links through migrant communities.
Oggetto: Il ruolo della Turchia nel progetto «Musa». In caso positivo, in quale misura e con quale scopo? It has recently been announced that Yildirim Beyazit University in Ankara has joined the MUSA project MUSic performing and creative Arts professions involved in healthcare , which is co-funded by the EU and seeks to promote professional mobility and the transparency of qualifications in order to raise the merits of artistic activities in courses of treatment, such as music therapy and clown therapy.
As a partner, has the university received, or is it currently receiving, any funding? If so, how much and for what purpose? The project consortium includes 7 partners from 5 different countries, which are suitably qualified in healthcare systems, VET and higher education with regard to music therapy, accreditation and recognition of European qualifications on the basis of ECVET 42 and ECTS 43 as well as educational and labour market policy.
Contract partner of project's applicant and support to the promoter on all levels of the project. Payment is made to the coordinating organisation which will pay out the respective grants to the partners according to their internal partnership agreements. Oggetto: Esondazioni e alluvioni, aumenta la percezione del rischio degli eventi idrogeologici — verso una campagna europea di prevenzione. Le recenti esondazioni e alluvioni verificatesi in Italia portano di nuovo «a galla» il problema del dissesto idrogeologico e dell'adeguata protezione del suolo attraverso misure di prevenzione e impermeabilizzazione.
Anche nel Novarese sono stati molti i corsi d'acqua minori esondati. Regioni come il Piemonte, la Valle d'Aosta e la Calabria hanno il per cento di rischio idrogeologico. Il Ministero dell'Ambiente ha quantificato in circa 8,4 miliardi i finanziamenti statali per politiche di prevenzione, mentre nello stesso periodo sono stati spesi 22 miliardi di euro per riparare i danni causati da frane ed alluvioni.
Negli ultimi 20 anni per ogni miliardo stanziato per la prevenzione di tali disastri, ne sono stati spesi oltre 2,5 per riparare i danni. Risulta, dunque, che la percezione sociale sui pericoli di alluvioni e frane sia peggiorata. Nell'ambito degli obiettivi programma generale di azione per l'ambiente , che prevedono una gestione sostenibile del suolo, intende integrare tali obiettivi con linee guida che conducano ad una campagna europea e nazionale itinerante di monitoraggio, prevenzione e informazione per la mitigazione del rischio idrogeologico?
Intende intraprendere ulteriori azioni al fine di garantire un percorso educativo e di aggiornamento di tutta la popolazione contro i rischi idrogeologici per prevenire i pericoli connessi? Ritiene che un'adeguata politica di prevenzione europea, ben delineata, potrebbe portare anche a un risparmio finanziario nell'ambito dell'istituendo sistema di protezione civile europeo? Gli Stati membri dovrebbero determinare gli obiettivi e le misure di gestione del rischio di inondazioni.
Al momento, la Commissione non intende adottare ulteriori provvedimenti relativi a campagne di monitoraggio, di prevenzione e di attenuazione dei rischi. Il JRC 45 cura un portale sulle inondazioni 46 contenente informazioni sulle inondazioni fluviali e sui rischi di inondazione in Europa.
La Commissione promuove l'uso delle infrastrutture verdi 49 per il ripristino delle pianure alluvionali naturali come soluzione economicamente vantaggiosa atta a ridurre gli effetti negativi delle inondazioni. Allo stadio attuale la Commissione non intende intraprendere ulteriori azioni volte a educare o informare il pubblico.
Al momento, la Commissione non intende elaborare una politica dell'UE in materia di prevenzione, ma ritiene che le politiche nazionali in materia di prevenzione potrebbero realizzare sostanziali risparmi. Da uno studio recente 51 risulta che gli investimenti in misure volte a ridurre le inondazioni sono altamente efficienti, con costi mediamente inferiori di circa volte rispetto ai danni causati dalle inondazioni. The recent flooding in Italy has again brought to the surface the issue of hydrogeological instability and proper protection of the ground by prevention and waterproofing measures.
In Alessandria Province the River Bormida rose by one and a half metres above the emergency level and spilled out into all areas of the flood plain. In Novara Province many smaller waterways also overflowed. It appears, therefore, that the popular perception of the hazards of flooding and landslides has deteriorated. Within the scope of the objectives of the general action programme for the environment , which provide for sustainable management of the ground, does it intend to integrate those objectives with guidelines leading to a travelling European and national campaign for the monitoring, prevention and information on the mitigation of hydrogeological risk?
Does it intend to undertake any further actions to provide for the education and updating of the entire population in relation to hydrogeological risks so as to avoid the associated hazards? Does it consider that an appropriate, well-defined European prevention policy could also bring about financial savings in the context of the European civil protection system which is due to be set up?
Member States MS should determine the objectives and measures of flood risk management. In addition, the Floods Directive 52 requires MS to make flood hazard and risk maps, and preliminary flood risk management plans publically available and encourage involvement of stakeholders. At this moment, the Commission does not intend to take further measures related to monitoring, prevention and risk mitigation campaigns.
The EEA 55 hosts an interactive map showing potential flood risk for European cities from heavy rainfall and is preparing an updated Floods Directive viewer showing the areas designated by MS for flood management The Commission promotes the use of Green Infrastructure 57 for the restoration of natural floodplains as a cost-efficient solution to reduce the adverse consequences of flooding.
Currently, the Commission does not intend to take further actions to provide education and information. The Union Civil Protection Mechanism 58 further obliges MS to develop risk assessments and puts preventions as a first step in an integrated disaster management policy. At this moment, the Commission does not intend to set up an EU prevention policy, but considers that national prevention policies could bring about substantive savings.
A recent study 59 concludes that investing in measures to reduce flooding is highly efficient, on average costing some times less than the damage caused by flooding. Oggetto: Somalia e fase di transizione e stabilizzazione: allarme per nuova ondata di violenza nel centro-sud del paese. La Somalia centrale e meridionale resta ancora un luogo estremamente pericoloso. Ogni mese sono state registrate tra e vittime e nel giugno violenti combattimenti hanno provocato la morte di persone nella sola Chisimaio.
I rischi per la popolazione civile sono quelli di rimanere uccisi o feriti negli scontri a fuoco tra le forze governative e i miliziani Al-Shabaab a causa degli attacchi bomba o nelle aree dove sono in corso attacchi mirati.
L'Alto Commissariato delle Nazioni Unite per i Rifugiati UNHCR ha pubblicato un aggiornamento delle linee guida sul bisogno di protezione internazionale delle persone in fuga dalla Somalia centrale e meridionale. Nel oltre 42mila somali hanno cercato asilo nei paesi limitrofi e in altre regioni del mondo. Central and southern Somalia remain extremely dangerous places. There are no complete statistics at present for the deaths and injuries caused by the conflict.
However, data supplied by the research group ACLED show much higher figures recorded in and early than in Between and deaths were recorded each month. In June violent clashes caused deaths in Chisimaio alone. The civilian population is at risk of death or injury in exchanges of fire between government forces and the Al-Shabaab militia, in bomb attacks or in areas under targeted attack. Although security conditions have improved in parts of these regions, the armed conflict continues.
Widespread insecurity and human rights violations are forcing many Somali citizens to abandon their country. In more than 42 Somalis sought asylum in neighbouring countries and other regions of the world. The comprehensive EU support has made a substantial difference in Somalia, where since we have seen a government elected for the first time, Al-Shabaab influence seriously diminished and successful piracy attacks brought back down to negligible levels.
The EU will continue to ensure that this support is fully coherent with other international donors and in line with Somali needs. In this regard the Brussels Conference on a New Deal for Somalia on 16 September was a major milestone for addressing the most critical political, security, and socioeconomic priorities in Somalia and endorsing the Somali Compact The EU is aligning its development priorities to the ones defined in the Compact.
This Compact agreed also to new aid architecture for Somalia which has the potential of increasing aid efficiency in Somalia; a new set of financing mechanisms and aid coordination structures through a mutual accountability framework for donors and government.
Prima ancora che iniziassero i negoziati, l'UE e gli USA hanno concordato che l'obiettivo era di ridurre i costi inutili e i ritardi amministrativi di natura regolamentare raggiungendo nel contempo i livelli di protezione della salute, della sicurezza e dell'ambiente che entrambe le parti ritenevano appropriati Essi comprenderanno una migliore convergenza regolamentare a monte, l'informazione tempestiva sulle iniziative previste in campo regolamentare, meccanismi di consultazione e un miglior meccanismo per formulare commenti, una cooperazione scientifica pre-normativa, il riconoscimento dell'equivalenza o il riconoscimento reciproco, segnatamente per quanto concerne le ispezioni.
In tutti i casi, le disposizioni della TTIP non dovrebbero intaccare il diritto sovrano di entrambe le parti a legiferare ai fini del perseguimento dei legittimi obiettivi di politica pubblica. La TTIP dovrebbe inoltre ribadire l'importanza e il ruolo particolari delle discipline internazionali.
The proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership between the European Union and the United States would create the largest free trade area in existence. The negotiations being conducted by the Commission are expected to be finalised by the end of Numerous doubts have been expressed as to whether the agreement is really necessary and regarding disputes which may arise as a result, especially in view of the reciprocal obligations contained in the provisional agreement provided for in phase 3 of the memorandum of understanding which ended the WTO controversy regarding penalties for banning hormone-treated beef imports.
It is not clear how possible future disagreements concerning the health, agri-food and pharmaceuticals sectors could be resolved since, according to the Commission communication, neither party has placed the harmonisation of standards on the agenda. Furthermore, health and plant health checks are the areas in which the biggest differences exist between the EU and USA regarding the application of international product traceability or risk evaluation standards.
Priority should be given to the transparency of procedures, intellectual property, relations with third countries and the duties applicable in the above sectors, where the absence of harmonisation and the lack of uniform regulations are leading to duplication of procedures, creating an ongoing financial burden for companies, restricting their market access and undermining their competitiveness.
A number of uncompromisingly restrictive policies followed by the EU at the expense of economic growth, compared with the markedly liberal policies adopted by the United States and Japan , are likely to widen the already substantial disparity between them in terms of industrial output. The long-term goal of a more integrated transatlantic market can be done through enhanced cooperation between regulators, adoption of compatible regulations developed in a transparent, predictable and inclusive manner, recognition of equivalence or mutual recognition for some sectors, such as car safety, chemicals safety, Sanitary and Phytosanitary rules etc.
Nevertheless, the tools used to achieve these regulatory objectives will depend on the issues and the specificities of each sector. They will include better upstream regulatory convergence, timely information on any forthcoming regulatory initiatives, consultation mechanisms and improved mechanism for comments, pre-normative scientific cooperation, recognition of equivalence, or mutual recognition notably of inspections. The overall objective of TTIP negotiations is to cut unnecessary red tape, reduce the costs of doing business across the Atlantic and make it easier for companies to comply with both American and European laws.
In any event, TTIP provisions should not affect the ultimate sovereign right of either party to regulate in pursuit of legitimate public policy objectives. TTIP should also affirm the particular importance and role of international disciplines. Nel la Commissione ha pubblicato un libro verde volto a rafforzare la fiducia reciproca nel settore della detenzione La corretta attuazione di questi strumenti potrebbe comportare una riduzione delle pene detentive irrogate dai giudici e di conseguenza un miglioramento delle condizioni di detenzione.
In the Commission published a Green Paper on strengthening mutual trust in the field of detention A summary of the replies has been published on the website Based on the outcome of the Green Paper, the Commission intends to focus on the proper implementation of the existing mutual recognition instruments adopted in the field of detention 70 before developing any new legislative proposals and has published an implementation report on the three Framework Decisions on 5 February Proper implementation of these instruments might lead to a reduction of custodial sentences imposed by judges and therefore to an improvement of detention conditions.
Investments in prisons are not considered to contribute to the development and structural adjustment of regions Article TFEU and hence, they cannot be considered as investments in infrastructure which could benefit from the European Regional Development Fund ERDF support.
Funding for prison upgrading is therefore not foreseen among the actions co-financed by ERDF within the framework of the programming period. Op 5 februari jl. De Belgische autoriteiten waren op de hoogte van de komst van deze hooligans, maar konden hen de toegang tot het stadion niet ontzeggen zolang zij niets verkeerds gedaan hadden. Heeft de Commissie al acties ondernomen om ervoor te zorgen dat het vrije verkeer van personen in de EU het goede verloop van voetbalwedstrijden niet in gedrang brengt?
Dit kader schrijft de oprichting van nationale informatiepunten betreffende voetbal voor en biedt de mogelijkheid om tussen deze punten informatie uit te wisselen voor de preventie en de bestrijding van geweld met betrekking tot voetbalwedstrijden met een internationale dimensie. In verband met dit rechtsinstrument bestaat er ook een EU-groep van deskundigen voor grote sportevenementen, die expertise uitwisselen en een EU-actieplan uitvoeren om veiligheidskwesties in verband met voetbalwedstrijden.
De groep deskundigen gebruikt een EU-handboek met aanbevelingen voor internationale politiesamenwerking op dit gebied, en werkt dit boek bij. Via deze instrumenten kunnen lidstaten ervaringen en informatie uitwisselen die overeenkomstig hun nationale wetgeving een vervolg kunnen krijgen. Afgezien hiervan kunnen stadionverboden ook door voetbalclubs worden opgelegd, in samenwerking met de nationale voetbalbonden en de UEFA. On 5 February this year, there was rioting in the stadium at the football cup match between Ostend and Lokeren involving Dutch hooligans who had been banned from entering stadiums in the Netherlands.
The Belgian authorities knew that these hooligans were coming, but could not prevent them from entering the ground so long as they did nothing wrong. Has the Commission taken any action to ensure that the free movement of persons in the EU does not jeopardise the smooth running of football matches?
This framework requires the setting up of national football information points and provides the possibility to exchange information between those points for the purposes of preventing and combating violence related to football matches with an international dimension. In connection to this legal instrument, there is an EU expert group for major sport events which shares expertise and implements an EU action plan to address security issues in connection to football matches.
The group updates and uses an EU handbook with recommendations for international police cooperation on this matter. Through these tools, Member States can share expertise and information which can be followed up according to their national legislation. Apart from this, stadium bans can also be imposed by football clubs, a step which is coordinated with national football associations and UEFA. Legislation providing protection for women with children, particularly mothers of young children, varies widely from one country to the other in the European Union.
Given that very little harmonisation has been done in this field and the matter chiefly falls within the competence of the Member States, each country applies different standards. Whether we are talking about issues such as discrimination on the labour market or obstacles to mobility, each country provides a different level of protection for women with children.
One of the problems facing mothers with young children, reducing their mobility and ultimately causing them to suffer discrimination by comparison with other social groups, is the lack of childcare facilities, particularly changing tables and nursing facilities.
In addition to the fact that there is no EU legislation laying down a minimum set of obligations for public institutions and public areas shopping centres, restaurants, museums, etc. Mobility for mothers with young children is very difficult in these circumstances, and this has a social and economic impact on these women.
Social and economic reintegration, in the world of work, for example, is made difficult and this can be seen as constituting a form of discrimination. Has the Commission carried out any studies or does it have any statistics on the impact of this problem in the Member States, and on the potential cost of this form of discrimination for the economy and for mothers of young children?
Is the Commission planning to conduct information campaigns in the Member States to raise awareness of the problem and encourage them to introduce national legislation in this area? If the Commission finds that this is a general problem in the Member States, will it propose recommendations or issue guidelines for the competent national authorities?
The Commission is aware of the problem and has recently adopted a report on the Barcelona objectives 79 which gives a state of play in the development of childcare facilities in the Member States. Moreover, significant co-funding possibilities are offered to support Member States. In the previous period an estimated EUR 3. In particular projects aiming at the social and economic reintegration of mothers in the labour market were co-financed Also in the current period childcare facilities are eligible for financial support by the European Investment and Structural Funds.
On 6 February, the European Parliament approved the FYROM progress report, which, as in previous years, urges the Council to set a date for the commencement of accession negotiations with Skopje and calls for more substantial progress regarding relations between Athens, Sofia and Skopje. Both the Commission and Parliament have, on several occasions, proposed dates for the commencement of negotiations.
However, it has not been possible to reach consensus between the Member States, chiefly owing to disagreements over the name of the country. Given that the priorities of the Greek Presidency include progress in negotiations with FYROM, does it intend to enter a decision regarding this matter on its agenda?
Similarly, what measures are being envisaged to enable FYROM to take the next step towards accession, as specified in the Council's programme of work for the forthcoming period? The Council draws the attention of the Honourable Member to its conclusions of 17 December on enlargement and the Stabilisation and Association process, which were endorsed by the European Council, in which the Council underlined that there was a need to bring the longstanding discussions on the name issue to a definitive conclusion without delay, and took note of the recent contacts with the UN mediator.
In the light of the overall importance of maintaining good neighbourly relations, the Council noted the continued high-level contacts between the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Bulgaria and looked forward to their translation into concrete actions and results. The Council further stated that, with a view to a possible decision of the European Council to open accession negotiations with the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, it would revert to the issue this year, on the basis of an update by the Commission on further implementation of reforms in the context of the High-Level Accession Dialogue, including the implementation of the 1 March political agreement and on tangible steps taken to promote good neighbourly relations and to reach a negotiated and mutually accepted solution to the name issue.
The EU has closer relations with Switzerland than with any other country outside the European Economic Area, thanks to a large number of agreements in various sectors. Switzerland is the EU's fourth largest trading partner, and the EU is Switzerland's main trading partner. More than 1 million EU citizens live in Switzerland, and a further cross the border every day to work.
In , the EU and Switzerland signed an agreement on the free movement of persons under which citizens were granted the reciprocal right to enter, live and work on their territories. Moreover, Switzerland is an associate member of Europe's border-free Schengen area. This means that the country could in theory reintroduce the quota system that was in force before the agreement on freedom of movement was signed with the European Union. Can the Commission explain the practical implications of the result of the referendum held in Switzerland on 9 February ?
Does the Commission agree that Switzerland's implementation of the referendum result will put an end to the agreement on the free movement of persons signed with the EU? What implications will this have for other EU-Switzerland agreements, and how will they be adapted in the light of the new situation in Switzerland?
As a consequence of the referendum, the Swiss legislator now has three years to adopt the necessary implementing legislation for the intiative which aims to introduce annual quantitative limits to immigration. Compliance of the implementing legislation with the EU-Swiss Agreement on the free movement of persons as well as any possible initiatives will be analysed once the details of the draft legislation are known. In the meantime, the Swiss Federal Council has assured the EU that it will continue to fulfil its existing international obligations.
As indicated by the impact assessment carried out by the Commission document SWD 16 , implications for the Member States would vary widely. In other words, the impact of such decisions would differ from country to country.
The Commission document proposes the introduction of mechanisms to ensure fairer distribution of the effort required in this respect, for example differentiated objectives, the sharing of auctioning revenues, the use of intelligent financial instruments or structural funds, etc. Can the Commission give further details concerning the nature of these mechanisms, indicating whether it intends to recommend different objectives in line with the per capita revenue of each Member State?
The proposed climate and energy framework reflects the broader set of objectives of EU climate and energy policies, namely sustainability, competitiveness and security of supply. The accompanying impact assessment analyses the costs and the benefits of a cost-efficient implementation for this policy framework, taking into account economic, social and environmental impacts. It also explores impacts for individual Member States if such cost-efficiency at the EU level were to be ensured.
The framework builds on the progress already made and is learning from the lessons of the Europe package. The Commission analysis confirms that the investment needs would be relatively higher in lower income Member States. In this context, it recognises that the policy framework should be based on an overall fair sharing of efforts between Member States which reflects their specific circumstances and capacities. Therefore each Member State's GHG reduction target should continue to take into account distributional factors.
Given the importance of future investments, solutions that contribute to improved finance will also be required. The Commission is open to further explore the mechanisms for a fair distribution, referred to in the proposed framework and its Impact Assessment.
