During the 2014-19 parliamentary term the European Union and notably the European Parliament, through its dedicated Committee on Petitions (PETI), has continued to uphold the right of citizens to petition the EP to raise issues and concerns and to call for redress and action in areas of EU competence, by mobilising institutions and Member States both on issues at the centre of the political debate, and on ‘‘orphan’’ or ‘‘dormant’’ issues. With the aim of better serving EU citizens, the Committee on Petitions has developed a Petitions Web Portal, adopted new and updated Guidelines, created a Petitions Network and a special Working Group on Child Welfare Issues. PETI continued to examine a high number of petitions raising issues in all areas of EU activity. In the 9th legislature, PETI could strengthen its achievements by exploring innovative ways to achieve effective solutions for the petitioners.

The protection of fundamental rights in the EU: European Parliament achievements during the 2014-2019 legislative term and challenges for the future

17-04-2019

In the years between 2014 and 2019, the EU has faced serious challenges related to the protection of fundamental rights within its territory, notably in connection to the Rule of Law (RoL) and democracy in some EU Member States. The Commission and the European Parliament (EP), led by the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE), have addressed these challenges by activating - for the first time since its introduction in the Treaties - the procedure foreseen in art. 7.1 TEU, respectively ...

In the years between 2014 and 2019, the EU has faced serious challenges related to the protection of fundamental rights within its territory, notably in connection to the Rule of Law (RoL) and democracy in some EU Member States. The Commission and the European Parliament (EP), led by the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE), have addressed these challenges by activating - for the first time since its introduction in the Treaties - the procedure foreseen in art. 7.1 TEU, respectively against Poland and against Hungary. The EP has also consolidated its former requests under the proposal for an EU mechanism on Democracy, the Rule of Law and Fundamental rights (EU DRF Pact). Important legislative dossiers on procedural rights were approved (presumption of innocence, safeguards for children in criminal proceedings, legal aid). While the EP continued to report annually on the situation of fundamental rights in the EU and on traditional issues of interest (among which minorities, Roma, anti-Semitism, right-wing extremism, prisons, media freedom, as well as follow up activities on mass surveillance and CIA), it has also addressed new issues, such as protection of whistle-blowers (a Commission proposal was issued following insistence of the EP), islamophobia, afrophobia and fundamental rights of intersex persons. The EP has also adopted resolutions on the situation in specific Member States, such as Malta, Slovakia, Romania, expressing Rule of Law concerns. Among the challenges that remain open for the next term are the art. 7 TEU procedures against Hungary and Poland, the strengthening of the protection of art. 2 TEU values including through the promotion of the EU DRF Pact, the EU accession to the ECHR, the enhancement of the EU and EP monitoring mechanisms, the adoption of pending files, including the Rule of Law conditionality for EU funds, the Rights and Values and Justice programmes, the equal treatment directive, the reform of the transparency regulation and, in the longer term; the reform of the Treaties.

Fri bevægelighed for personer

01-03-2018

Fri bevægelighed og ophold for personer i EU er hjørnestenen i unionsborgerskabet, som blev indført med Maastrichttraktaten i 1992. Den gradvise afvikling af de indre grænser inden for rammerne af Schengenaftalerne blev fulgt op med vedtagelsen af direktiv 2004/38/EF om unionsborgeres og deres familiemedlemmers ret til at færdes og opholde sig frit inden for EU. Uanset betydningen af denne ret er der fortsat ti år efter udløbet af fristen for gennemførelse af direktivet betydelige hindringer for ...

Beskyttelse af de grundlæggende rettigheder i EU

01-03-2018

Artikel 2 i Traktaten om den Europæiske Union (TEU) fastsætter, at Den Europæiske Union bygger på værdierne respekt for den menneskelige værdighed, frihed, demokrati, ligestilling, retsstaten og respekt for menneskerettighederne, herunder rettigheder for personer, der tilhører mindretal.

Artikel 7 indeholder bestemmelser om en EU-mekanisme, som for nylig er blevet aktiveret for første gang, og som – for at sikre, at de nævnte værdier respekteres – gør det muligt at fastslå, om en medlemsstat groft og vedvarende har overtrådt EU's værdier, og om denne medlemsstat skal pålægges sanktioner. EU er ligeledes underlagt sit charter om grundlæggende rettigheder, som fastlægger de rettigheder, der skal respekteres af såvel Den Europæiske Union som af medlemsstaterne, når disse gennemfører EU-retten. EU har desuden forpligtet sig til at tiltræde den europæiske konvention til beskyttelse af menneskerettigheder og grundlæggende frihedsrettigheder.
