How can it be that those who expose wrongdoing are persecuted and the wrongdoers get off scot-free? For us, this is unacceptable. Whistleblowers often sacrifice their employment and even their safety, for the sake of doing what is right. Ensuring they are protected is the least we can do for them. Today on World Whistleblowers' Day, we stand with those who shine a light on wrongdoing for the...

Seven years of war.
It’s not a movie title. It’s a hard reality for more than 13 million people in Syria.

For seven years now 6.3 million have been displaced internally. Another 5.1 million have been forced to flee Syrian borders. Civilians in conflict are the innocent casualties we see in the news.

European governments should pick up their game and play their part in ensuring a home for...

Massive tax evaders couldn’t possibly do it on their own. The Commission is finally having a go at complicit tax intermediaries; all those bankers, lawyers and advisors who facilitate the theft of society. Sanctions must be tough and truly dissuasive. That’s the price to pay for #TaxJustice. Find out more: [ Link ]

He left his home, his family, his friends behind, just to have a chance to survive. Now he is alive, but not living. His life is on hold. He cannot go to school, his mother cannot have a job, his sister cannot continue her university degree and no one knows for how long. Years are passing by and his life too. This #WorldRefugeeDay breaks the sad record of the highest number of men, women and...

It took almost a year but we’re finally at it. Brexit negotiations have started today, although it is not quite clear what stance Theresa May will take after her disastrous electoral gamble. The hard Brexit line the Tories held so dear won’t do any good to neither UK nor EU citizens, and British voters couldn’t be fooled. We strongly believe that a positive relationship between the European...

The dream of a European future is alive and well among the youth of the Western Balkans. However, if dreams are to be turned into reality, then young people must become more than just observers. They must become actors!

Last week we were in Albania to discuss with Western Balkan youth about how we can make young voices a part of the accession process ⏬

Many decisions were taken this week, to fight against climate change, protect our health, and set new rules for our economy . We had some things to celebrate like the end of roaming and the 30 years of Erasmus. But also some important issues to stand for like the ongoing crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Brexit and the fight against tax evasion. This is our fight for the values we...

It’s hard to believe that tonight in Europe – the world’s wealthiest continent – thousands of children will go to bed on empty stomachs. The facts are simply unbearable: more than one in four children in the EU are at risk of poverty or social exclusion. Again today, we urged the Commission to introduce a European Child Guarantee that would give every single one of these children access to...

For 30 years now, young people all over Europe have been enjoying the chance to travel and study in countries they possibly might not have visited otherwise. Some say #Erasmus is the first truly European passport our generation has enjoyed. Others say it’s the chance they’ve been waiting for to get in touch with other people and build relationships that would last a lifetime. One thing is...

Congratulations to Jeremy Corbyn and The Labour Party! You have run a strong and positive campaign for the future of the British people. Theresa May gambled and it backfired spectacularly. She lost any credibility in her own country and in Europe. Time for her to resign!

We’ve wasted enough time because of Theresa May’s erratic behaviour on Brexit. We need to start serious negotiations on...
