EU Trade Policy goes Asia, or bananas?

There is serious concern in the EU at the pace of globalisation and the potential implications on employment and even economic survival in some regions. The disturbing response of the Commission to this is that the EU must get for complete competition with China and the emerging Asian economic powers if the European Social Model is to sur…

No GMOs in our fields or on our tables !

On 29 September 2006, the Dispute Settlement Body of the WTO published its final ruling on the GMO policy of the EU which upholds the substance of the European GMO policy. That is the good news. The bad news is that it severely weakens the chances of securing a GMO policy based on the precautionary principle in the future.

A Green perspective on international trade

Trade, as an ordinary means of cooperation to satisfy human needs, is an age old concept. However, contemporary international trade relations fail to create welfare for all in a fair and balanced way, and disrespect human needs beyond material welfare creation. Green trade policy aims at less but better trade.

Suspension of the Doha Round

The Doha Development Round of WTO trade talks were suspended in July 2006, officially as a result of a failure by the US and the EU failure to find a compromise on tariff cuts for agricultural products and the limits of agricultural subsidies. In reality, the whole Doha Round has been hampered by a myriad of problems for years.

Export of toxic waste to Africa

Greens/EFA call on the Commission, the Netherlands and Côte d'Ivoire to fully investigate this case, to establish responsibilities at all levels, to bring to justice those responsible for this environmental crime and to ensure that the environmental contamination is comprehensively dealt with and the victims are compensated

Promoting human rights

Thanks to the work of the Green presidency, the subcommittee is increasingly playing an expert role on human rights and democracy, providing input to reports from the Foreign Affairs committee, mainstreaming human rights issues throughout Parliament bodies and creating a platform for permanent dialogue with civil society representatives

Freedom of expression

Over the years, Greens have very often supported candidates who also supported environmental progress in their fight for fundamental rights. Our fight for the cyber-dissidents from China, Iran and Tunisia in 2005 resulted in a resolution on the freedom of expression on the internet. What about 2006 ?

Illegal detention of prisoners in Europe

Many suspicions have recently been confirmed by the recent statement made by George Bush admitting the existence of secret detention centres operated by US services. The main task of the committee now is to check whether such centres have actually been operated in the EU but it is particularly difficult to find the truth
