XI Conference on Feminicides

Violence against women is on the rise, and with it its most extreme manifestation, the feminicide (murder of women). No continent is free from this. Very often, police, lawyers, prosecutors or other people dealing with feminicide lack sufficient training and sensibility. The XI Conference on Feminicide builds on programs and good practices in the judicial sector in Latin America and compares with the situation in Europe.

EU Ministers fail to agree corporate transparency measures

Quote from Ernest Urtasun MEP

EU Ministers failed to agree on Thursday 28 November, on proposals for greater corporate transparency. The proposals, which have been on the table for over three years, for public country-by-country reporting would ensure more transparency around the profits earned and taxes paid by large multinational companies.

Italy’s own goal - why the Commission should have a look at Italy’s new problematic tax scheme

Italian decree on personal income tax for non-residents

The FIFA Women’s World Cup has spawned countless passionate debates in the past few weeks on fairness in sport. On one hand, we have enjoyed the impassioned efforts of all players as they contend head-to-head on the international platform - with the spirit of fair play that all sports people carry as ambassadors for their sporting discipline - and on the other hand we have seen the players’ courageous fight against unfair hurdles and unequal conditions women football players face in comparison to men.

EU Whistleblower Protection Directive approved

Quote from Benedek Jávor MEP

For the first time across the EU, those who wish to expose corruption, wrong doing and illegality in the workplace will be able to come forward safe in the knowledge that they will have legal guarantees and rights to protection. This Directive has been a long time coming and is a shining example of how the EU can directly improve the lives of citizens.

EU-US trade talks

Quote from Reinhard Bütikofer MEP

We need a fair partnership, but not a deal at the expense of the environment and European standards. The Commission and the Council are undermining the EU's negotiating position by trying to avoid a transparent debate out of fear of public opinion. We will help to ensure that this does not happen.
