Leistungen des Petitionsausschusses in der Wahlperiode 2014-2019 und Herausforderungen für die Zukunft

03-07-2019

In der Wahlperiode 2014-2019 haben sich die Europäische Union und insbesondere das Europäische Parlament mit seinem engagierten Petitionsausschuss (PETI) weiterhin für das Recht der Bürger eingesetzt, Petitionen beim EP einzureichen, um Fragen und Probleme anzusprechen und Rechtsbehelfe und Maßnahmen in den Zuständigkeitsbereichen der EU zu fordern, indem sie die Organe und die Mitgliedstaaten sowohl für Themen im Mittelpunkt der politischen Debatte als auch für vernachlässigte oder ruhende Themen ...

In der Wahlperiode 2014-2019 haben sich die Europäische Union und insbesondere das Europäische Parlament mit seinem engagierten Petitionsausschuss (PETI) weiterhin für das Recht der Bürger eingesetzt, Petitionen beim EP einzureichen, um Fragen und Probleme anzusprechen und Rechtsbehelfe und Maßnahmen in den Zuständigkeitsbereichen der EU zu fordern, indem sie die Organe und die Mitgliedstaaten sowohl für Themen im Mittelpunkt der politischen Debatte als auch für vernachlässigte oder ruhende Themen mobilisiert haben. Um den EU-Bürgern besser dienen zu können, hat der Ausschuss ein Internetportal für Petitionen entwickelt, das eine einfachere Einreichung von Petitionen, mehr Interaktion und Informationsdienste ermöglicht. Er hat neue und aktualisierte Leitlinien angenommen, um die Bearbeitung von Petitionen und den Beschlussfassungsprozess des Ausschusses zu vereinfachen. Ferner konnte er einige vorteilhafte Änderungen der Geschäftsordnung des EP bewirken. Die Zusammenarbeit mit anderen Ausschüssen des EP wurde verstärkt und verbessert, auch durch die Einrichtung eines Petitionsnetzes. Zum ersten Mal hat der PETI-Ausschuss eine besondere Arbeitsgruppe eingesetzt, die Arbeitsgruppe zum Wohlergehen von Kindern, die dafür zuständig war, eine Reihe von Petitionen zu den Rechten von Kindern zu prüfen und dem Ausschuss im Rahmen von Empfehlungen darüber zu berichten. Der PETI-Ausschuss hat seine guten Arbeitsbeziehungen zur Kommission, den Mitgliedstaaten und der Europäischen Bürgerbeauftragten aufrechterhalten. Er hat eng mit den Dienststellen des EP, insbesondere dem Juristischen Dienst des EP, zusammengearbeitet und deutlich häufiger auf das Fachwissen der Fachabteilung Bürgerrechte und konstitutionelle Angelegenheiten für Studien und Workshops sowie auf den wissenschaftlichen Dienst des EP (EPRS) zurückgegriffen. Zudem hat er in der Wahlperiode 2014-2019 eine große Zahl öffentlicher Anhörungen durchgeführt. Gleichzeitig ist es dem Ausschuss gelungen, die allgemeine parlamentarische Tätigkeit im Hinblick auf die Zahl der Berichte, Stellungnahmen, mündlichen Anfragen, Entschließungen und Informationsbesuche in der Wahlperiode 2014-2019 gegenüber der Wahlperiode 2009-2014 weitgehend stabil zu halten (siehe Anlage 1). Vor diesem Hintergrund hat der PETI-Ausschuss weiterhin eine große Zahl von Petitionen geprüft, in denen Fragen zu allen Bereichen der EU-Tätigkeit behandelt wurden: Grundrechte, Migration, Petitionsrecht, Unionsbürgerschaft, Freizügigkeit, Diskriminierung, Europäische Bürgerinitiative, Kinderrechte, Umwelt, Tierschutz, Behinderung, Sozialpolitik und Beschäftigung, Brexit, bessere Rechtsetzung und Anwendung des EU-Rechts, Offenheit, Transparenz, Zugang zu Dokumenten, Interessenkonflikte und internationale Abkommen. Der PETI-Ausschuss hat sich ferner mit einigen sehr speziellen Fragen beschäftigt, beispielsweise dem Hypothekenrecht und riskanten Finanzinstrumenten. Aufgrund seiner wichtigen Rolle bei der Feststellung von Verletzungen der Rechte von Menschen mit Behinderungen (die sogenannte „Schutzfunktion“ innerhalb des EU-Rahmens zur Umsetzung des Übereinkommens der Vereinten Nationen über die Rechte von Menschen mit Behinderungen auf EU- und Mitgliedstaatenebene) hat der PETI-Ausschuss dem Thema Behinderungen viel Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet.

15-03-2019

This study, commissioned by the PETI Committee of the European Parliament, provides a brief overview of the relevant EU labelling legislation Member States have to comply with, with regard to labelling of food, including organic products, for consumers, with emphasis on the requirements of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011.

This study, commissioned by the PETI Committee of the European Parliament, provides a brief overview of the relevant EU labelling legislation Member States have to comply with, with regard to labelling of food, including organic products, for consumers, with emphasis on the requirements of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011. It critically assesses these laws and discusses progress - or lack thereof -, in particular with regard to aspects such as safety, health effects, effects for disabled people, etc. It explores and elaborates on the question of whether the current labelling requirements actually result in clearer information to help citizens to better understand the composition and health effects of food. The study also provides brief analyses/assessments of several petitions provided by the PETI Committee. Where possible, this study makes (policy) recommendations for EU institutions and/or Member States, taking into account their respective remits.

This analytical study focuses on the legal and practical / ethical dimensions of the appointment of senior-level officials in the European Union (EU) institutions, and a selection of Member States and different European / international organisations. Focusing on the four instances of maladministration identified by the European Ombudsman with regard to the appointment of the new Secretary-General (SG) of the European Commission (EC), this study recommends inter alia that a special appointment procedure should be adopted for the appointment of the SG of the EC; amending Articles 7 and Article 29 of the Staff Regulations to improve their clarity and limit chances of misapplication / maladministration; for the Ombudsman to be capable of bringing a judicial review procedure; looking into the possible ways in which EU citizens and organisations may be involved in shaping the institutional policies on appointments; promoting the professionalisation of selection committees; addressing inefficiencies in appointment procedures and clarifying criteria (on exceptions, publication of vacancies etc.); enhancing the transparency of appointment procedures and strengthening independent monitoring of appointment procedures; broadening the choice of candidates; considering the introduction of external independent expertise in appointment procedures; a role for the European Parliament, e.g. pre-appointment hearings of SG; and clarifying existing conflict of interest requirements.

This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the PETI Committee, aims to update the 2016 study “Fit for purpose? The Facilitation Directive and the criminalisation of humanitarian assistance to irregular migrants”. It takes stock of and examines the latest developments that have taken place since 2016, specifically the legislative and policy changes, along with various forms and cases of criminalisation of humanitarian actors, migrants’ family members and basic service providers. The study uses the notion of ‘policing humanitarianism’ to describe not only cases of formal prosecution and sentencing in criminal justice procedures, but also wider dynamics of suspicion, intimidation, harassment and disciplining in five selected Member States – Belgium, France, Greece, Hungary and Italy. Policing humanitarianism negatively affects EU citizens’ rights – such as the freedom of assembly, freedom of speech and freedom of conscience. When civil society is effectively (self-)silenced and its accountability role undermined, policies to combat migrant smuggling may be overused and give rise to serious breaches of the EU’s founding values, notably the rule of law, democracy and fundamental rights. Moreover, policing humanitarianism negatively affects wider societal trust and diverts the limited resources of law enforcement from investigating more serious crimes.
