The sharp power of knowledge: Authoritarian meddling in academia

06-12-2019

The visibility of, and focus on, authoritarian hybrid threats – a mix of conventional and non-conventional hostile activities to undermine democracies – is increasing. Techniques and technologies keep evolving, and a growing number of authoritarian actors are adopting and adapting different tools to further their agendas. In this context, 'soft power' exerted through academic institutions and universities can become a 'sharp' hybrid tool, undermining academic independence and further eroding trust ...

UN Convention on children's rights: 30 years on

11-11-2019

This month marks the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), the first international treaty to recognise children as human beings with innate rights. Since 1989, conditions for children have improved, but millions remain unprotected. This is an updated and expanded version of an 'at a glance' note from 2014.

Oleg Sentsov: The 2018 Sakharov Prize laureate

09-10-2019

Thirty years since it was first awarded, the European Parliament's Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought retains all its symbolic meaning, as human rights are continually under threat in many parts of the world. By awarding the 2018 Prize to the Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, Parliament aimed to increase the pressure on the Russian government to release him. The award also drew attention to all Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia and the annexed Crimean peninsula. On 7 September 2019, Sentsov ...

On 7 September 2019, Sentsov was released as part of a major prisoner swap between Russia and Ukraine. He is due to receive the award in person in Strasbourg on 26 November 2019.

Ukraine: Navigating multiple challenges

07-10-2019

Five years after the 'revolution of dignity', in which Ukrainians demanded a functioning democracy and an end to kleptocracy, the country elected a new President in April 2019 and a new Parliament in July. The new leaders in Kyiv are facing a wide range of persistent challenges. Russia's ongoing hybrid war against the country, including the illegal occupation of Crimea and the war in eastern Ukraine, as well as the continued reform process dominate the agenda. The High Representative of the Union ...

The European Parliament's evolving soft power - From back-door diplomacy to agenda-setting: Democracy support and mediation

27-09-2019

For the past 40 years, Members of the European Parliament have been working at boosting Parliament's role in EU foreign policy. These efforts have continued to be stepped up since the launch of the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) in 1993. Over recent decades, the European Parliament has significantly raised its profile as a credible moral force with strong focus on strengthening human rights, supporting democracy and enhancing the rule of law worldwide.

For the past 40 years, Members of the European Parliament have been working at boosting Parliament's role in EU foreign policy. These efforts have continued to be stepped up since the launch of the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) in 1993. Over recent decades, the European Parliament has significantly raised its profile as a credible moral force with strong focus on strengthening human rights, supporting democracy and enhancing the rule of law worldwide. Perhaps less visible than the European Parliament's Sakharov Prize for freedom of thought, the European Parliament's democracy support activities are part of its 'soft-power' approach to international relations. Moreover, Parliament can convey messages through channels that are different from, and complementary to, those employed by the EU's traditional diplomatic players; for example, through its parliamentary networks. Parliament also enjoys Treaty-based information and consultation rights, which allow its Members to shape the EU's external policies. In addition, the European Parliament has become a public forum for debating with representatives of partner countries and international organisations, as well as influential non-state actors. MEPs pro-actively engage in inter-parliamentary delegations and missions to third countries as well as joint parliamentary assemblies. Moreover, parties in different countries often share strong links via their political families.

Understanding European Parliament delegations

26-09-2019

Members of the European Parliament form official groups – delegations – with ties to regions and organisations, as well as parliaments, in non-EU countries. Parliament has expanded its impact EU in foreign policy in recent decades, and its delegations are a key component of its diplomatic work.

EU cooperation with Greenland

11-04-2019

The overall aim of the European Union-Greenland Partnership Agreement is to boost ties and cooperation between the EU and Greenland, with education and training as one of several key areas of cooperation. As part of the partnership, and taking Greenland's needs into account, the focal point of EU-Greenland financial cooperation is education and training, with a special emphasis on boosting the pre-school and elementary school system, as well as on providing support for vocational education and post-elementary ...

EU-Belarus people-to-people contacts

25-03-2019

The autocratic policies pursued by Belarus's long-standing president, Alexander Lukashenko, have strained EU-Belarus ties over the years. Against this backdrop, the EU has geared its support towards the Belarusian people at large. The crisis in Ukraine slowly rekindled EU-Belarus relations, but the backbone of cooperation remains civil society support and people-to-people contacts.

EU-Moldova people-to-people contacts

14-03-2019

Since the Republic of Moldova joined the Eastern Partnership regional initiative 10 years ago, its ties with the EU have grown closer. In recent years, however, the country's political, economic and societal stability has become increasingly wobbly, and public trust in institutions and even NGOs remains low. The EU is working to strengthen the role of civil society organisations in public life.

Πώς να εντοπίζετε τις ψευδείς ειδήσεις

19-02-2019

Οι ψευδείς ειδήσεις (fake news) και η παραπληροφόρηση – πληροφορίες χαλκευμένες εσκεμμένα με σκοπό την παραπλάνηση ανθρώπων – έχουν εξελιχθεί σε ένα όλο και πιο ορατό παγκόσμιο φαινόμενο. Τα μέσα κοινωνικής δικτύωσης και τα εργαλεία εξατομίκευσης που προσφέρουν έχουν καταστήσει ευκολότερη τη διάδοση ψευδών ιστοριών. Συχνά χρησιμοποιούν το συναίσθημα για να τραβήξουν την προσοχή και να προσελκύσουν επισκέπτες, για οικονομικούς ή ιδεολογικούς λόγους. Ακόμη και νέοι άνθρωποι, εξοικειωμένοι με την τεχνολογία ...

Συχνά χρησιμοποιούν το συναίσθημα για να τραβήξουν την προσοχή και να προσελκύσουν επισκέπτες, για οικονομικούς ή ιδεολογικούς λόγους. Ακόμη και νέοι άνθρωποι, εξοικειωμένοι με την τεχνολογία, δυσκολεύονται να εντοπίσουν τις χαλκευμένες ειδήσεις. Ενδεικτικό είναι ότι, οι έξι στις δέκα ειδήσεις που κοινοποιούνται στα μέσα κοινωνικής δικτύωσης δεν έχουν καν αναγνωσθεί προηγουμένως από τον χρήστη που τις κοινοποίησε. Το 85 % περίπου των Ευρωπαίων θεωρούν τις «ψευδείς ειδήσεις» πρόβλημα στη χώρα τους, ενώ το 83 % θεωρούν ότι αποτελεί πρόβλημα για τη δημοκρατία εν γένει. Αυτή η πυξίδα θα σας βοηθήσει να πλοηγηθείτε στους ωκεανούς της πληροφόρησης και να μη χαθείτε μέσα σε κύματα ψευδών και στην παραπληροφόρηση.
