Réalisations de la commission des pétitions au cours de la législature 2014-2019 du Parlement européen et défis pour l’avenir

03-07-2019

Au cours de la huitième législature parlementaire (2014-2019), l’Union européenne, et surtout le Parlement européen, a continué de soutenir, par l’intermédiaire de sa commission des pétitions (PETI), le droit des citoyens d’adresser des pétitions au Parlement en vue de porter des questions à son attention, de faire part de leurs préoccupations, d’obtenir réparation et de demander l’adoption de mesures dans les domaines de compétence de l’Union, en suscitant l’intérêt des institutions et des États ...

Au cours de la huitième législature parlementaire (2014-2019), l’Union européenne, et surtout le Parlement européen, a continué de soutenir, par l’intermédiaire de sa commission des pétitions (PETI), le droit des citoyens d’adresser des pétitions au Parlement en vue de porter des questions à son attention, de faire part de leurs préoccupations, d’obtenir réparation et de demander l’adoption de mesures dans les domaines de compétence de l’Union, en suscitant l’intérêt des institutions et des États membres tant sur des thèmes qui se trouvent au coeur du débat politique que sur certaines problématiques «orphelines» ou «dormantes». Afin de mieux servir les citoyens de l’Union, la commission des pétitions a mis en place un portail en ligne visant à faciliter la présentation de pétitions, à mieux interagir avec les citoyens et à leur fournir davantage d’informations. La commission a adopté de nouvelles lignes directrices pour simplifier le traitement des pétitions ainsi que son processus de prise de décision. Elle est également parvenue à apporter certaines modifications positives au règlement intérieur du Parlement européen. La coopération avec les autres commissions du Parlement a été renforcée et améliorée, y compris par la création d’un réseau des pétitions. Pour la première fois, la commission des pétitions a créé un groupe de travail spécial, le groupe de travail chargé des questions relatives au bien-être des enfants, qui a enquêté sur plusieurs pétitions ayant trait aux droits des enfants et a ensuite formulé des recommandations dans le cadre de rapports. La commission des pétitions a poursuivi ses bonnes relations de travail avec la Commission européenne, le Conseil, les États membres et le Médiateur européen. Elle a coopéré étroitement avec les services du Parlement européen, notamment avec son service juridique, et a considérablement accru le recours à l’expertise en matière de recherche du département thématique des droits des citoyens et des affaires constitutionnelles ainsi que du service de recherche du Parlement européen pour élaborer des études et organiser des ateliers. La commission des pétitions a par ailleurs organisé de nombreuses auditions publiques au cours de la huitième législature. Dans le même temps, la commission des pétitions est parvenue à maintenir l’activité parlementaire globale à un niveau stable, ce que l’on constate en comparant le nombre de rapports, d’avis, de questions orales et de résolutions présentés ainsi que le nombre de missions d’information effectuées pendant les huitième et septième législatures. Dans ce contexte, la commission des pétitions a continué à examiner un grand nombre de pétitions portant sur tous les domaines d’activité de l’Union européenne: les droits fondamentaux, la migration, le droit de pétition, la citoyenneté et la libre circulation, la discrimination, l’initiative citoyenne européenne, les droits des enfants, l’environnement, le bien-être animal, le handicap, les politiques sociales et l’emploi, la sortie du Royaume-Uni de l’Union européenne (Brexit), l’amélioration de la législation et de l’application du droit de l’Union, l’ouverture, la transparence, l’accès aux documents et les conflits d’intérêts, ainsi que les accords internationaux. La commission des pétitions a également traité de sujets très spécifiques, tels que le droit hypothécaire et les instruments financiers à risque. Elle a accordé une attention particulière à la question du handicap en raison du rôle important qu’elle joue dans la détection des violations des droits des personnes handicapées (à savoir son «rôle de protection» au sein du cadre de l’Union établi en vue de mettre en oeuvre de la convention des Nations unies relative aux droits des personnes handicapées).

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 at gaining deeper insights into the legal aspects of cross border nuclear safety and cooperation in the European Union. It analyses the legal framework of nuclear safety as well as the liability and insurance schemes for nuclear accidents. The study examines the current liability and insurance framework and formulates possibilities for a further involvement of the EU in the liability regime. Specific attention is paid to citizen and NGO involvement in decision-making concerning nuclear power plants. The study analyses the case law in that respect and formulates various recommendations to improve the regime concerning cross-border nuclear safety, liability and corporation in the EU.

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.
