Our amendment proposals to the European Parliament

We proposed amendments to the draft report on extending the list of EU crimes to hate speech and hate crimes. We have been closely following the discussions surrounding the Draft Report on ‘Extending the List of EU Crimes to Hate Speech and Hate Crime’ and would like to share our proposed amendments.

Firstly, we would like to express our strong support for the initiative to address hate speech and hate crime within the EU framework. These offenses pose a significant threat to the principles of equality, diversity, and inclusion that the European Union upholds. Extending the list of EU crimes to encompass hate speech and hate crime would send a powerful message that the EU is committed to protecting its citizens from all forms of discrimination and violence.

We sincerely believe that the incorporation of our amendment proposals will strengthen the overall effectiveness of the EU’s efforts to combat hate speech and hate crime. Our organization will continue to be committed to contributing to a safer and more inclusive European Union, and we are always eager to collaborate with the European Parliament.

Our report ‘Violence against women with disabilities in the UK, EU and Turkey’

 

Our report ‘Preventing and Combating Violence against Women with Disabilities in the UK, EU and Turkey’ is submitted to PACE. We are proud to submit our report on “Preventing and Combating Violence against Women with Disabilities in the UK, EU and Turkey” to the Committee on Equality and Anti-Discrimination in the PACE and UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women and girls. This comprehensive report aims to shed light on the pressing issue of violence against women with disabilities in different countries.

The report, which has been meticulously compiled through rigorous research and consultation, underscores the urgent need for measures to address and eliminate the violence faced by women with disabilities. It highlights the unique challenges they encounter and provides recommendations to the PACE on policy frameworks, awareness campaigns, and support systems.

We firmly believe that this report will contribute significantly to advancing the dialogue and actions surrounding this critical issue within PACE and beyond.

Our amendment proposals on the regulation of prostitution in the European Parliament

 

Our proposed amendments to the EP on the impact of prostitution on gender equality and women’s rights in the EU. We are proud to announce our amendment proposals on the Regulation of prostitution in the EU: Its cross-border implications and impact on gender equality and women’s rights.

The issue of prostitution and its regulation is being debated in many Member States and worldwide. The regulations, which differ from Member State to Member State, lead to diverse realities for and impacts on people in prostitution that prove disappointing and do not do justice to them and their individual situations. The draft report has been prepared in a very comprehensive and precise manner, but in our view, it requires a few changes to highlight some current challenges facing the continent. Our proposed amendments focus on the escalation of the sexual exploitation and trafficking of Ukrainian women and girls following the Russian invasion.
