MEPs vote to establish new Internal Security Fund

A new fund that will support Member States' efforts to boost security within and between their countries has been endorsed during a vote in the European Parliament in Strasbourg today. As currently proposed, the Internal Security Fund will have a budget of just under 5 billion euros to support objectives such as increasing the exchange of information between law enforcement authorities, tackling radicalisation and strengthening crime prevention.

Disinformation poisons minds and consciences

MEPs have today backed ECR MEP Anna Fotyga's report into EU efforts to tackle strategic propaganda against the EU and its Member States by third parties, such as Russia. The report reviews the response of the EU and its Member States to the first Strategic Communications (Stratcom) report adopted by the European Parliament in 2016 and provides further recommendations on how best to tackle strategic propaganda from third countries.

New protection for farmers and food suppliers

ECR MEPs back proposals to give citizens greater say in EU policy-making

ECR MEPs have today backed proposals to give citizens a greater say in EU policy making by strengthening the European Citizen’s Initiative (ECI). ECR MEPs believe the Commission should be held accountable to EU citizens and therefore fully support the strengthening of the ECI. This is a step in the right direction, bringing the EU closer to its citizens.

OUR EVENTS

The Europe - Muslim World Democracy Forum

As a number of Muslim majority states make the democratic transition, there is a need for increased political, economic and civic engagement with other nations around the world, including in Europe. Facing significant regional and global challenges, it is necessary for nations to work together, strengthening shared values, and building lasting relationships as a catalyst for future action. Now more than ever, it is necessary for democracies to come together and discuss their shared values and mutual interests in order to strengthen the democratic order and to promote democracy and stability in the face of the resurgence of authoritarianism and to overcome the tension and polarization between the Muslim World and Western nations.
