Debate on the future of Europe

25.05.2016

Part 2 - Making the (green) case for Europe – Europe as Emotion

As a self-proclaimed “pro-European force”, the Greens consider that European solutions and EU-wide solidarity are essential to address the numerous crises our societies are faced with. At the same time, we also openly criticize the policies decided at the EU level and the liberal-conservative political majority that takes them. But in an increasingly polarized political debate on Europe, between “populist revolution” and “coalition of the status quo”, the Green voice should have a distinctive resonance – how could we achieve that?

What role for the Greens in Europe to fight tax evasion and tax avoidance?

20.05.2016

In the light of the recent scandals (the Offshoreleaks, Luxleaks, Swissleaks scandal, Panama papers), this event will be the opportunity to present what the Greens / EFA group in the European Parliament has started to do within the framework of its Tax Justice Campaign. Denouncing the role of tax havens in Europe (and in the US), highlighting concrete examples of how big companies are avoiding taxes (the IKEA report) and fighting within the EU institutions for tax reforms (inquiry committee, initiative reports) are just a few examples that will be discussed.
