What consequences does this reporting have for the performance of the work of the Directorate-General for Trade? Is the Commissioner concerned prepared to resign voluntarily to limit further damage to the image of European governance? La Commission ne commente pas les litiges en cours. De Gucht pour absence de preuves. In particolare Unicef fa due comparazioni di dati: Come valuta la Commissione i dati che emergono dal rapporto dell'Unicef e la loro interpretazione? I dati citati provengono dal modulo dell'indagine europea sul reddito e le condizioni di vita elaborato da Eurostat e dalla DG EMPL.
Unicef compares two specific sets of data: The first three places are held by Iceland, Finland and Cyprus, all of which score below 6. How does the Commission view the data in the Unicef report and the way these have been interpreted? The Commission is aware of the Unicef report and welcomes its high quality and approach, even though its interpretation of the data does not necessarily reflect the views of the European Commission.
This dataset is part of a long-term strategy to develop better data on child deprivation. The Commission is currently preparing a recommendation on child poverty and works together with the Member States on common principles and indicators to tackle this issue more effectively. A headline target for poverty was set under the Europe strategy, some Member States have set their own child poverty targets and several Country Specific Recommendations address child poverty directly.
The Progress programme finances peer reviews, studies, networks and transnational social experimentation projects on child poverty. Vpliv ocen tveganja in varnosti jedrskih elektrarn v EU na nadaljnje ukrepe EK. Evropska komisija je 7. On what reasoning is the Commission basing its expectations that the stress tests will strongly influence the design, operation, maintenance and regulation of nuclear power plants? The Commission will present to the European Council a communication later in , which will take into account these additional elements as well as the peer review report.
In addition, the Commission is currently assessing possible ways of improving the existing EU nuclear safety framework, taking into consideration the results of the stress tests. For more detailed information, the Commission would like to refer the Honourable Member to the abovementioned documents. Die Kommission hat zum selben Thema eine Beschwerde registriert. Water filters lawfully brought into free circulation have been successfully sold across Europe for many years, without any health-related difficulties coming to light.
This is something which the Commission itself has established in recent months in response to various questions from the European Parliament. Italy has recently passed a new legal regulation governing water filters Decreto ministeriale n. What measures is the Commission considering taking to ensure that Italy also observes the principle of free movement of goods with regard to water filters? In addition, participating doctors are often paid to convert a person onto a new regimen which includes the newly marketed agent.
Once the study is over, most patients remain on the analogues rather than going through another change of regimen — which would be uncompensated for the physician. These studies often do not generate any published results, which suggests that they are of a marketing rather than a scientific nature. What action, if any, is the Commission taking to avoid kickbacks and prevent drug trials that could be considered as disguised marketing? Would the Commission consider introducing tougher anti-kickback legislation along the lines of that applicable in the US?
The new legislation explicitly prohibits studies being performed when the act of conducting the study promotes the use of a medicinal product. There are also restrictions on payments to healthcare professionals, which must be limited to compensation for time and expenses incurred. The competent authority of the Member State in which a study is conducted may require the marketing authorisation holder to submit the study protocol and progress reports.
It is the primary responsibility of Member States to monitor compliance of pharmaceutical undertakings and healthcare professionals with the rules. Sono circa 25 le persone morte negli ultimi giorni nell'ondata di violenze tra buddisti e musulmani nello Stato di Rakhine, nell'ovest della Birmania. Lo ha dichiarato a un'agenzia nazionale un ufficiale birmano senza precisare l'etnia e la religione delle vittime. Nell'area rimane in vigore lo stato di emergenza proclamato domenica sera. Attualmente, la maggior parte dei progetti di aiuto, umanitario o di altro genere, nello stato di Rakhine sono stati temporaneamente sospesi.
Around 25 people have died in the last few days in the wave of violence between Buddhists and Muslims in the State of Rakhine, in the west of Burma. A Burmese official notified a national agency without specifying the ethnicity and religion of the victims. The state of emergency declared on Sunday evening remains in force in the area. Inter-communal violence has affected both Buddhist and Muslim inhabitants in the area. Currently, most humanitarian and other aid projects in Rakhine State have been temporarily halted.
Il commercio illegale di specie animali protette prolifera sul web. Solo nel in Italia sono state sequestrate tartarughe Testudo, spedite vive, sigillate in piccoli pacchi che sono stati rintracciati in sei diversi uffici postali d'Italia, da Olbia 62 esemplari sequestrati a Genova 19 , passando per Napoli 18 , Roma 34 , Firenze 63 e Reggio Emilia Negli ultimi tre anni ne sono stati sequestrati in varie zone del paese.
Le uova vengono fatte schiudere con l'ausilio di un'incubatrice, poi le tartarughe sono pronte per essere commercializzate senza il rispetto delle norme in materia. Esistono misure adottate dall'UE al fine di contrastare il commercio illegale di animali e, in caso di risposta negativa, non ritiene che si debba stabilire una strategia europea che ostacoli il fenomeno in questione ormai in espansione in tutta Europa?
Sebbene non esistano dati in merito alla portata del problema, si ritiene che il commercio illegale di specie selvatiche sia in aumento. Nonostante l'attuazione e l'esecuzione delle relative disposizioni rientrino nelle competenze degli Stati membri, la Commissione ha adottato nel una raccomandazione che definisce una strategia contro il commercio illegale di specie selvatiche.
The illegal trade in protected animal species is very widespread on the Internet. From tortoises to birds of prey, and even ivory, the market is definitely expanding. In Italy in alone, Testudo tortoises were seized, having been sent live and sealed in small packages, which were traced to six different post offices in Italy — Olbia 62 seized , Genoa 19 , Naples 18 , Rome 34 , Florence 63 and Reggio Emilia In the last three years of them have been seized in various parts of the country.
The black market trade in tortoises is now widespread throughout Europe. It is fairly easy to find them on the Internet, as there are many advertisements on the most common e-commerce sites. Certainly, some of the trade is legal, but in many other cases the animals are sold without any certification. They are captured in the wild and then mated in small illegal and unhealthy farms, set up in cellars or garages. The eggs are hatched using an incubator, and the tortoises are then ready to be sold, without complying with the regulations. While there is no data on the extent of illegal wildlife trade, it is judged to be a growing problem and the involvement of criminal organisations has been proven for a number of valuable commodities like ivory, rhino horns or precious birds.
The implementation and enforcement of those provisions fall within the responsibility of the Member States, but the Commission adopted a recommendation in setting out a strategy against illegal wildlife trade. The Commission chairs meetings of the wildlife trade Enforcement Group which meets twice every year. Between and , around 2 seizures of illegally-traded wildlife products have been reported yearly by EU enforcement agencies.
Ivory, tortoises, live birds, various products used for medicinal use and caviar are amongst the most commonly seized specimens. As well as the confiscation of goods, fines and, in the most serious cases, prison sentences have been imposed on the offenders. I festival sono molto importanti per la vita culturale europea. Sono quindi ammessi al sostegno nel quadro del programma per la cultura UE. Gli operatori culturali che desiderano presentare una domanda di finanziamento devono contattare il Culture Contact Point nel proprio paese.
It is developing into a cultural powerhouse in the Puglia region and is gaining an increasingly strong international reputation, coming to be seen as a model for the organisation of cultural events and the creation of new types of performance and artistic trends. Promoted by the city of Andria and from this year onwards also working in partnership with the Romaeuropa Festival, it is one of the few Italian cultural events with an international reputation, and one which enjoys strong support from public bodies.
The event, which will take place at several sites representing various aspects of the city, will offer a programme emphasising its specific nature through its content and its international vocation. Can the Commission state whether the city of Andria can apply for direct funding for the Festival, which is growing rapidly and over the years has become an irreplaceable showcase for Puglia and for the whole of southern Italy? The festival also represents a rendezvous with live theatre, exposes audiences to a host of cultural ideas and captures the best of the Italian and international cultural scenes, at the same time maintaining a constant dialogue with the surrounding area, implementing targeted initiatives to support creativity in the form of the new and exciting theatrical developments which have emerged over the past few years.
Festivals are very important to the cultural life of Europe. By giving the floor to a large variety of artists and cultural operators in different f cultural fields, festivals highlight the great richness of our cultural diversity, and make it more accessible to a broad audience. Therefore, the City of Andria could apply for funding for the Castel dei Monti Festival within this programme, either under the festival strand or in the framework of a cooperation project, annual or multi-annual.
Whether as a festival or as part of a cooperation project, it should be noted that specific conditions for participation have to be respected and that the selection process, managed with the help of independent external experts, is highly competitive and only the very best applications receive a grant. Cultural operators who wish to apply for funding are advised to get in touch with the Culture Contact Point in their country. Inquinamento da pillole contraccettive. Ovviamente tale teoria ha trovato molti oppositori, prime fra tutte le compagnie farmaceutiche.
A new threat to fish is about to be added to pollution and illegal fishing practices: According to a study by a British university, high levels of synthetic hormones deriving from the action of these contraceptive pills are released into waters through discharged household waste, which already tends to have an impact on the ecosystem. The theory has of course encountered considerable opposition, primarily from the pharmaceutical companies. The solution proposed by the professor is to establish a sewerage network that can prevent this phenomenon and, according to the researchers, it should be up to the pharmaceutical companies themselves to pay for it.
The researchers say that further studies are needed to be certain and it cannot be excluded that the phenomenon might also have repercussions on human health. According to another study, this time carried out in Canada, not all fish become intersex on contact with the hormone ethinylestradiol, but some species, such as fathead minnows, Pimephales promelas are at risk of disappearing completely from the area where this hormone is present in sufficient concentrations. Depending on evolving scientific and policy needs, further research could be supported under the next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon In line with the decision on the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme CIP , this programme does not support this kind of research.
Hanno atteso che approdasse a Gioia Tauro prima di entrare in azione. Nella stiva, tra le noccioline brasiliane accatastate in uno dei container, c'erano sedici borsoni contenenti chili di cocaina pura destinata al mercato europeo. In questa settimana altri chili di coca erano andati ad infoltire i depositi delle Fiamme Gialle.
Nell'ultimo anno a Gioia Tauro sono stati sequestrati circa 2 mila chilogrammi di cocaina. I narcotrafficanti della Ndrangheta fanno i conti con un buco economico di 85 milioni di euro di capitale. Una volta tagliata e rivenduta, il costo lievita a dismisura, passaggio dopo passaggio. Fiumi di droga che arrivati sulle piazze di spaccio di mezza Italia avrebbero portato nelle casse dell'organizzazione qualcosa come milioni di euro.
E che dietro il traffico di coca dal Sud America vi siano i clan calabresi non ci sono dubbi. Italian special agents spent months monitoring the progress of a vessel after its departure from the port of Cristobal, near the Panama Canal. They waited until it moored at Gioia Tauro before going into action. In the hold, among the Brazilian peanuts piled up in one of the containers, they found 16 large bags containing kilos of pure cocaine intended for the European market. The seizure of the drugs, divided up into cakes, was simply the last stage in a lengthy operation.
This week customs officers confiscated a further kilos of cocaine. Once the drugs have been cut and resold, their value increases astronomically at every stage in the chain. There is no doubt that the Calabrian mafia families are behind the traffic in cocaine from South America. The Commission has been supporting Member States' activities on intercepting cocaine shipments at sea as well as combating drug trafficking via the cocaine route more generally.
The Commission is aware of the raid carried out by the Italian military on shipments of cocaine from Latin America to Italy which have also been reported in the press. Nuovo studio inerente alle lesioni del midollo spinale. Topi paralizzati in seguito a gravi lesioni spinali hanno ripreso a camminare e a correre grazie a un'innovativa tecnica di riabilitazione combinata messa a punto da un team di ricercatori svizzeri.
In questa fase gli animali sono stati sostenuti da una piccola imbragatura collegata a un sistema robotizzato che interviene nel caso il topo perda l'equilibrio.
Dopo un paio di settimane di neuro-riabilitazione i topi non solo cominciano a camminare volontariamente, ma riescono anche a sprintare, salire le scale ed evitare gli ostacoli. Mice paralysed following serious spinal damage have started to walk and run again thanks to an innovative combined rehabilitation technique developed by a team of Swiss researchers. The method, which opens up new research prospects into possible therapies to deal with paralysis in humans, was carried out in two stages.
Ten minutes later an electric stimulation of the spinal cord is carried out, implanting electrodes in the most external part of the vertebral canal, in the so-called epidural space. The mice treated in this way were then put to the test by standing them on their rear legs on top of a flat surface and inducing them to move by means of a visible bait, a piece of chocolate placed nearby.
During this stage the animals were held by a small harness linked to a robotic system which intervened if the mouse lost its balance. The test was repeated until an unexpected result was obtained. After a couple of weeks of neuro-rehabilitation the mice not only started to walk voluntarily but also to run, climb stairs and avoid obstacles. In the light of the above and given the EU's commitment to the health sector through its development of the Health Strategy and the health programme, does the Commission not agree that the study could be financed through the Seventh Framework Programme FP7 or through the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme, so as to encourage earlier testing on humans?
This is part of an FP7 comprehensive effort to support research on spinal cord repair. I pesci robot sono dotati di un sistema di comunicazione tra loro e con la base che permette di registrare la loro posizione, i loro spostamenti, quali acque sono state campionate e i risultati di ogni analisi. E nonostante le tante funzioni, la tecnologia ha un basso impatto sulla vita marina: A robot fish can analyse types and levels of water pollution in real time.
Hence water monitoring will no longer necessitate sampling and laboratory analysis. The fish is like a tuna with a yellow plastic shell and is 1. Using its movement sensors, the robot can recognise and avoid obstacles. The battery provides as much as eight hours per charge for exploration. The robot is also fitted with chemical sensors which can detect the presence of lead, copper and other pollutants, and measure the salinity of the water.
The novelty is that all this happens extremely fast: Either a single robot fish or a group can handle the analysis work. They are equipped to communicate with each other and with the base, which can plot their positions and movements and record which water has been sampled and the results of each analysis. Though multi-functional, the technology has a low impact on marine life. The robots make little noise and successfully communicate with each other on very low-frequency wavelengths.
Does it think this is a useful tool to resolve the difficulties encountered in identifying the causes of water pollution? If so, does it intend to finance the production of new prototypes for distribution in the Member States? The Commission considers that intelligent robotics can provide a useful tool to remedy the difficulties encountered in water pollution detection and tracking.
More titles to consider
The robot fish prototype in question would lend itself very well in future to wider deployment, given its relatively low cost and ease of use for the purpose intended. By involving port authorities in the research, the Commission expects that the technology will be validated in real settings. This will enable the supplying companies in the project to exploit the scientific and technical results more rapidly, all around Europe and the world.
The project will offer therefore, in addition to the important technology achievement, a showcase that the participating industry and research labs should use to transform this progress into commercial success. This is how the Commission sees the exploitation of the project results at this stage. Si ricorre alla rete per diversi motivi: Le incognite e i rischi a cui questi pazienti vanno incontro non sono pochi.
Esistono, infatti, diversi siti affidabili, forum a cui partecipano persone competenti e blog che forniscono informazioni utili. Alla luce di quanto su esposto, si chiede alla Commissione di rispondere ai seguenti quesiti:. La Commissione non era a conoscenza dell'iniziativa italiana menzionata dall'onorevole deputato. Gli Stati membri sono stati incoraggiati a prendere misure ulteriori. Il portale, gestito dalla Commissione, funge da intermediario verso siti web affidabili in tema di salute a livello europeo, fornisce tutta una gamma di informazioni ai cittadini, agli operatori sanitari, ai ricercatori e ai decisori politici.
Consulting the web over medical questions is an increasingly frequent habit amongst Europeans. People turn to the web for various reasons: Now patients will be supported by a quality guarantee covering the transparency and the reliability of health information available on websites and blogs which meet specific requirements. The unknown elements and risks which these patients may encounter are many. While not the right solution for obtaining a diagnosis in real time with guaranteed anonymity, the web can be a useful instrument if well used.
There are in fact various reliable sites and forums in which competent people take part and blogs which provide useful information. The important thing is to know about them. Is it aware of the Italian regulation which requires a seal of approval to be given to Internet sites containing reliable medical information?
Are there any EU regulations which cover online health issues or the use of IT to obtain information in the health sector? The Commission was not aware of the Italian initiative referred by the Honourable Member. There is no EU legislation to cover health information provided on the Internet. Member States have been encouraged to take further action. It has elaborated a Code of Conduct to help standardise the reliability of medical and health information available on the web.
Secondo gli agenti, i prodotti acquistati in Cina e in Europa orientale dovevano essere consegnati, come lasciano ragionevolmente ipotizzare le indagini tuttora in corso, a medici senza scrupoli, verosimilmente di etnia asiatica, che li avrebbero somministrati ai loro pazienti in cambio di lauti compensi. In due casi i farmaci, confezionati in blister, flaconi e bustine, per un peso complessivo di 3,7 chilogrammi, erano nascosti nei bagagli di due cittadine cinesi residenti in Italia e provenienti dalla Cina, rispettivamente via Monaco e via Roma-Fiumicino. Nel terzo, invece, il sequestro di farmaci ha riguardato un cittadino italiano proveniente da Tirana.
Tra i principi attivi contenuti nei farmaci sequestrati spiccano l'adrenalina, il raceanisodamine cloridrato, il ribavirine ed il citicoline. Sostanze che avrebbero potuto causare gravissime patologie fino a diventare letali. Spetta agli Stati membri garantire il rispetto della normativa europea e, in particolare, della normativa nel campo dei medicinali per uso umano. This latest operation was carried out by Bari customs officers. During regular checks aimed at stopping illicit trafficking at the airport of Bari-Palese they uncovered three attempts to import pharmaceuticals without their mandatory registration with the Ministry of Health.
In two cases, the medicines, in blister packs, bottles and sachets, weighing a total of 3. In the third case, the seizure of the medicines involved an Italian national coming from Tirana. Amongst the main active ingredients in the seized medicines were adrenalin, raceanisodamine hydrochloride, ribavirin and citicoline. These are substances which could cause serious, and possibly lethal, illnesses.
It is aware of this event, if it intends to launch investigations in order to ensure that no illegal and dangerous medicines are placed on the market and if it will step up checks at the external borders? If there are Member States which have issued ad hoc rules against online pharmacies which now turn out to be major suppliers of illegal medicines? The Commission is not empowered to carry out investigations in events such as the one mentioned by the Honourable Member. Member States are responsible for ensuring the enforcement of European legislation, including of the legislation on human medicinal products.
The seizure in Bari airport does not seem to be linked to online sales of medicines. The Spanish legal system has historically been hampered by a lack of physical and human resources, a situation which, has been alarmingly exacerbated over the last few years by the ongoing economic and financial crisis. Although this is one of the three fundamental branches of any State, Spain has one of the lowest numbers of judges per capita in the European Union: This affects the exercise of the right to effective legal protection, to which every citizen of a state of law is entitled, since it slows down the action of the law to unacceptable levels, and also makes proper case management impossible, which can result in undesired incidents causing social alarm.
Paradoxically, the Ministry of Justice, which has seen its budget cut by 6. When is the Commission going to incorporate obligations to maintain and improve the public sector in general, and the legal system in particular, into its prescriptions for the recovery of the Spanish economy and to combat the threats hanging over the euro and economic and monetary union?
Does the Commission intend to bring this matter to the attention of the Spanish Government? In its Annual Growth Survey AGS , which launched the European Semester of Economic Governance, the Commission highlights the fact that the quality of public administration at EU, national, regional and local levels is a determining element in terms of competitiveness and an important productivity factor. Moves towards modernising public administration have therefore been monitored and analysed in each Member State, including Spain. In particular, the Commission has recommended that Spain should do more to eliminate barriers to doing business arising from overlapping and multiple regulations on the part of different levels of government.
Progress in Spain towards modernising public administration and making the civil justice system more efficient will be monitored and assessed during the European Semester exercise. According to the Greek Association of Tourism Enterprises SETE , in May the first , bookings were lost due to the recession and the political instability prevailing in the country, a fact which will have a negative impact on the financial and fundamental indices for , slowing down the growth rates of the Greek economy even more. Given that the head of the Task Force in Greece has repeatedly emphasised that growth is key to economic recovery and that, in a country like Greece, tourism is undeniably the locomotive for economic growth:.
The Commission acknowledges the importance of the tourism sector in Greece, both for economic growth and employment. In the context of their complex economic recovery process tourism represents one of the sectors of great growth potential and therefore deserves careful attention. A pre-requisite for quality service is the ability to have skilled and trained workers. The main focus of this award will be initiatives implemented by economic operators in the tourism supply chain. Tale legislazione consente l'addebito di una commissione aggiuntiva per i pagamenti con carte di credito, emesse in Danimarca o in un altro Stato membro.
Per il momento alla Commissione non risulta che la pratica di Teller possa costituire una limitazione delle norme dell'UE in materia di concorrenza. Could the Commission inform me whether it is aware of the fact that, in Denmark, the fee charged for payments made by credit card is higher for those issued in other Member States than it is for those issued in Denmark, and whether this discrimination can be deemed to be compatible with EU rules? The issue of surcharging on card payments in Denmark has been subject to an infringement procedure by the Commission against Denmark.
Subsequently, the national rules have been changed and there are no longer any surcharges for payments with debit cards, regardless of where the card has been issued. On the contrary, surcharges are allowed on credit cards, as long as no distinction is made between Danish cards and cards issued in another Member State. Nevertheless, in light of the question submitted, the Commission has asked the Danish authorities for additional information and will keep the Honourable Member informed of further developments.
After consulting the Danish authorities, the Commission wishes to inform the Honourable Member about the following:. As already indicated by the Commission in its reply of It allows for the surcharging on credit card payments, be they issued in the Denmark or in another Member State. There are some 40 establishments accepting payment cards in Denmark. If these costs are higher for a payment card issued in another Member State, the corresponding surcharge will in consequence be also higher than the one required for the use of a payment card issued in Denmark. The Commission does not at present have any indications that this practice by Teller would constitute a restriction of EU competition law.
He also noted that in order to boost financial growth, it would be useful to create a new financial instrument that would not be associated with any state bank but consist of independent bodies assisting small and medium-sized enterprises and underwriting risk. What delays and difficulties, if any, has it observed on the part of the Bank? Due to the economic situation in Greece and the situation of Greek banks in particular, access to finance is still a critical issue. The Commission is in constant contact with the Greek authorities and the EIB at all levels in order to build sustainable solutions for the Greek economy.
However, approvals and signatures have decreased since while disbursement started to decline in The Greek Government has created a working group with members from Greece, some other Member States and EU institutions to analyse the value added of the possible creation of an institution for growth in Greece, whose mission would be to finance the Greek economy. If the Greek Government were to decide to create such an institution it would take some time before it is operational. The Commission assumes that this would not be the case before The Commission is aware that sound management of waste and efficient use of resources is a critical problem globally.
The conference calls for the development and enforcement of comprehensive national and local waste management policies as well as the adoption of strategies, laws and regulations. It also recognises a need to manage solid waste such as electronic waste and plastics in an environmentally sound manner and to significantly reduce food waste throughout the food supply chain. It is essential for the long term sustainability of measures put in place to deal with the growing problem of waste management, that each country, region or municipality takes the leadership and responsibility for the development of such measures.

The EU can then help partner countries by supporting their own efforts to build an appropriate regulatory and institutional environment. The Commission is also taking specific measures to help low-income countries deal with the growing problem of management of municipal solid waste. La Commission n'est donc pas en mesure d'engager une initiative sur cette question. In many Member States, the national health authorities require doctors and pharmacists to prescribe and issue generic medicines, since these molecules are identical and therefore present no risk to the patient, but are priced at a level that enables social security systems to make considerable savings.
However, in a recent report from the French Academy of Medicine, the therapeutic quality and effectiveness of generic medicaments is called into question, without any scientific proof being provided. All medicinal products, including generics, are placed on the market after an in-depth assessment of their quality, efficacy and safety based on the strict requirements of EU pharmaceutical legislation.
Member States may adopt national measures and develop national approaches for the prescription of generics which may differ from one Member State to the other. The Commission is therefore not in a position to launch an initiative on this issue. The Roma are the most numerous transnational minority in the European Union and the integration issues of this minority have always been a subject of EU debate and action. Half of Roma still live in homes without a kitchen, shower or electricity.
Projects seeking better Roma integration over time have proved to be limited in terms both of results and approach. Considering also the exacerbated social impact of the world economic crisis, the Roma community ought to be treated with increased attention, owing to the vulnerability which typifies it. The Commission is well aware of the situation of the Roma people, who are among the most marginalised groups of the European society and have experienced sustained poverty and social exclusion, exacerbated by the economic crisis.
The European Union and the Commission address the challenge of Roma integration via both policy recommendations and financial support. Furthermore, in the framework of the European Semester, Country Specific Recommendations for Roma inclusion have been addressed to Member States with the largest Roma communities and facing the most severe challenges.
This should ensure that Roma exclusion is addressed by Structural Funds interventions in the Member States concerned. The Commission has also proposed for the ESF a specific investment priority on the inclusion of marginalised groups such as Roma and an ex-ante conditionality to ensure that Member States using Structural Funds for Roma inclusion have an appropriate Roma integration strategy in place. The increase in water temperature and the decrease in river flow, both of which are consequences attributed to climate change, are already leading to the temporary shutting down of thermal power stations, which require huge amounts of water for cooling.
Thermal power stations have a service life of many decades and it is not easy to move all of them closer to the sea, which offers a more reliable source of cooling water. Furthermore, there are limits regarding the quantity of water that can be pumped by each plant, because water recycled within a plant returns to the lakes and rivers much hotter than before, causing what is known as thermal pollution, thus harming aquatic ecosystems.
Is the Commission aware of these developments and what measures is it willing to take, or has it taken, to deal with the problem of thermal pollution caused by thermal power stations in order to protect aquatic ecosystems? Has it taken appropriate action, such as holding discussions or conducting studies by specialists, university experts and scientists in order to find a sustainable solution to this problem in both environmental and financial terms?
The Commission is aware of the so called thermal pollution that may sometimes be caused by thermal power stations and is currently not taking measures or conducting studies to tackle this particular form of pollution. Accordingly, Member States must address all pressures on the aquatic ecosystems, including those from thermal power stations, by taking, in the framework of their River Basin Management Plans, appropriate measures that need to become operational by the end of The report will highlight the main achievements but also the gaps and deficiencies in the implementation of the directive, e.
At this stage, the Commission cannot prejudge whether thermal pollution will be identified as a key priority. Nonetheless, the Blueprint will contain proposals to improve the implementation of the directive, including by better addressing the impacts of climate change on the aquatic environment. Given the current crisis in Spain and Greece and the problems in Italy, Portugal and other European countries, what conclusions has the Commission drawn about the relevance and effectiveness of the EBA? Such a stress-test exercise was carried out in Valuable lessons from this exercise can be drawn for future stress tests.
Possible improvement relate in particular to the need for greater engagement with banks and national supervisors and further strengthening of the methodology.
If the European financial system is to be credible and stable, all supervisors will have to systematically work together in a more coordinated and constructive way. In this case, EBA's work has been instrumental in order to ensure that the relevant banks have reached the agreed level of capital at the date foreseen.
The Commission has no doubts about the relevance and effectiveness of EBA and the other two new supervisory authorities. Could the Commission specify what reasonable steps providers will be required to take to protect their customers from paying roaming charges for such services where inadvertently accessed when they are in their home Member State?
The issue of inadvertent roaming has already been identified and addressed in the previous Roaming Regulation. To further strengthen the monitoring of the occurrence of involuntary roaming, the new Regulation contains additional obligations to monitor and to inform customers. According to data gathered by NRAs, inadvertent roaming was not identified as a significant problem, and only a few consumers were reported as adversely affected. Information gathered by regulators indicate that providers have put in place a number of mechanisms to deal with the issue of inadvertent roaming: For instance they are providing relevant information on their websites or where a particular issue has been identified, they have generally taken additional steps to ensure consumers are aware of the issue.
In some cases operators offer specific bespoke tariffs for neighbouring countries; or have developed network coverage in border areas to tackle the problem. Some Member States argue that the decisions should not be based solely on the opinions from EFSA, and that national bodies should also be involved in the process.
In base all'articolo del codice penale sudanese del , infatti, le colpevoli di tale reato sono punite mediante lapidazione, se sposate, o con cento frustate, se nubili. Le prove a suo carico sono il terzo figlio, di soli 4 mesi, detenuto attualmente in carcere con la madre, ed una confessione ottenuta a seguito di percosse poste in essere da uno dei fratelli. Il tribunale l'aveva processata nuovamente dopo che la corte d'appello non aveva confermato la pena di morte per lapidazione. L'UE ha inoltre espresso preoccupazione in occasione della visita a Bruxelles a fine maggio del dott. Gazhi, stretto consigliere del presidente sudanese Bashir.
L'UE ha invitato il Sudan, sia bilateralmente che nel quadro di forum multilaterali, ad abolire la pena di morte o almeno ad imporre una moratoria de iure. Intisar Sharif Abdallah has been sentenced to death by stoning by the Court of Ombada in Central Sudan, after being convicted of adultery. In court, the woman did not have any legal assistance or receive the aid of an interpreter despite her limited knowledge of Arabic, the language in which the proceedings were conducted. Considering that sentencing to death by stoning is a violation of the ban on torture established, inter alia , by the UN Convention against Torture, to which the Khartoum government is also a signatory;.
Considering that stoning for adultery is not prescribed by the Koran, but by the Hadith of Islamic tradition, and is still in effect in seven countries where sharia law is enforced;. Considering that signs are continuing to come from Sudan especially convictions which suggest that Khartoum, after separation from the Christian South, is intending to embrace a more rigid enforcement of sharia law;.
What measures does she intend to take to ensure respect for human rights in Sudan and, in particular, to ensure a fair trial for Intisar Sharif Abdallah and all women similarly tried and currently detained? Does she think that more rigid enforcement of sharia law in Sudan could be an obstacle to achieving an agreement with Christian Southern Sudan and, consequently, a resolution of the conflict? What priority is the European Union giving to putting pressure on the Sudanese Government to comply with international conventions and to calling for substantive reform of the judicial system?
The court had re-tried her after the court of appeal had overturned her sentence of death by stoning. She urges both parties to deploy maximum efforts to resolve all outstanding issues. The Comprehensive Peace Agreement of also provides for a constitutional review process in both Sudan and South Sudan. The EU places a lot of importance on Sudan signing and ratifying all relevant international instruments making references to the use of death penalty, including the Second Optional Protocol to the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights. Direttiva europea sulle malattie mentali. Ciononostante, si tratta di un settore ancora poco assoggettato alla legislazione dell'UE, in quanto l'organizzazione e l'erogazione dei servizi sanitari sono di competenza degli Stati membri.
However this is a sector in which there is still little EU legislation, in that the organisation and the delivery of health services are the responsibility of the Member States. This inevitably entails a high degree of diversity regarding the provisions and obligations linked to health treatment, which can vary from one Member State to another. Within this field, mental health protection and treatment is a particularly delicate issue, arising from the complexity and variety of this type of illness and the consequences which it can have on those affected.
In the summer of in Rome, there was an uproar when a man of French origin repeatedly beat his daughter's head against the steps of the monument to the Unknown Soldier, causing her serious injuries. A proposal for such a Joint action has been submitted under the call for proposals and is currently under evaluation. The Commission has no plans to propose a directive on mental health and takes this opportunity to recall that According to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the definition of health policies and the organisation and delivery of health services and medical care is the responsibility of Member States.
Sussistono le condizioni per l'attivazione del Fondo europeo di adeguamento alla globalizzazione per intervenire a sostegno dei lavoratori e della loro riqualificazione professionale? La Commissione non partecipa alla selezione, al monitoraggio e alla valutazione dei progetti. The spectacles production zone, which is centred in the area of the province of Belluno, in particular Cadore, Agordino Longarone, Alpago, Feltrino Bellunese Belluno and Ponte nelle Alpi and Val Belluna Mel, Sedico, Sospirolo, Trichiana, Limana , along with a significant presence of firms in the provinces of Treviso, Padua and Venice, and some adjacent municipalities in Friuli Venezia Giulia, is now in a serious economic and social crisis.
Last May the management of Safilo announced the cutting of one thousand jobs in the three production facilities of the group, Longarone, Santa Maria di Sala and Martignacco, as well as in the Padua parent company establishment. Considering the dependence of the local economy on the survival of the spectacles industry, can the Commission state whether:. The operational programmes co-financed by the Structural Funds European Social Fund and European Regional Development Fund are implemented by the Member States and their regions in line with the principle of subsidiarity. The Commission is not involved in the selection, the monitoring and the evaluation of projects.
L'assainissement du secteur et la moralisation de ses pratiques sont donc indispensables. Over the last few years, European football has become synonymous with a system that is completely unregulated, and is now seen by many as an economic bubble that is about to burst. The long-term viability of the sport is increasingly being called into question.
It is therefore vital for the whole sector to be cleaned up, and for its practices to be made morally acceptable. Several proposals have been made to supplement these regulations and strengthen regulation at European level. Another involves setting a two-fold salary limit a salary cap for the entire squad, on the one hand, and ensuring that there is an acceptable limit in the discrepancy between salaries of players in the same squad, on the other.
A third involves the introduction of a Football Transfer Tax FTT , with the money generated being used to finance sporting infrastructure and promote both youth training and the core values of the sport. Without these initiatives, is it not likely that competition between football clubs in the European Union will become increasingly distorted? The Treaty rules on competition clearly apply to the economic aspects of sport. Le rapport final du projet est attendu pour la fin de La Commission suivra attentivement les conclusions de ce projet.
The final report of the project is due by the end of The Commission will be closely following the findings of this project. Parliament specifically recognised the efforts of the Commission to develop a toolkit on complementarity. What is the timeline for its completion and publication? Are consultations foreseen with relevant stakeholders including EU Member States, the European Parliament and civil society? The EU strongly supports the Rome Statute system in which the ICC plays a key role as the court of last resort, and the principle of complementarity which is elementary for the Rome Statute to reach its full potential.
Strengthening national criminal jurisdictions and rule of law is key to fighting impunity and putting the complementarity principle into effect. The EU is the largest donor in supporting justice and rule of law reform; it plays a central role in the realisation of the principle of complementarity in practice by supporting justice and rule of law programmes worldwide with a focus on criminal justice.
The core crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes need to be addressed as part of external actions and development cooperation programmes in the area of justice and rule of law, supported by policy and political dialogues at country level. A forthcoming Commission Reference Document on Support to Justice and the Rule of Law — Review of past experience and guidance for future EU development cooperation programmes also addresses fighting impunity as part of wider criminal justice and rule of law reform. Commission services and the EEAS are working on a toolkit on complementarity which should be presented before the end of this year.
Discussions with civil society and international organisations active in the field have fed into this work. La regione Sicilia non ha adottato e attuato piani di protezione rispetto al rischio amianto, e non ha risanato le aree contaminate, con sinergismo e potenziamento tossicologico, nei vari siti, da Milazzo fino a Gela, da Siracusa, e nel resto della Sicilia, con violazione delle norme di cui agli artt. Is the Commission aware that funding and disbursements drawn from European Regional Development and Structural Funds have been used by the Region of Sicily without securing the contaminated sites?
A doctor from Physicians for Human Rights believes that the player is currently in a critical condition and should be transferred to a civilian hospital to receive appropriate care, which he has so far been refused. In addition, what is the European Union actually doing to induce Israel to end the arbitrary and unlawful practice of administrative detention? The EU has a long standing concern about the extensive and disproportionate use by Israel of administrative detention. All detainees have the right to be informed of the reasons for their detention and given access to a review mechanism.
As a general principle, detainees should be subject to a fair trial without undue delay. The Commission expressed uncertainty as to whether the Slovak authorities had indeed applied such a blanket exclusion. Furthermore, under European Union law, excluded students may request their readmittance to the institutions in question even prior to the legislator's intervention. While recalling that by using the means of redress available at national level individuals directly affected by the application of such provisions should in principle be able to assert their rights more directly and personally, the Commission wishes to inform the Honourable Member that it has contacted in the meantime the Slovak authorities with a view to clarifying this issue.
The Commission will keep the Honourable Member informed of relevant developments in this matter. The European Union is currently experiencing an unprecedented economic and financial crisis that has led to austerity measures being adopted in a number of European countries, with the aim of curbing public deficits and designing new programmes at European level to promote growth and employment.
The seriousness of the situation and the risk that the impact of the eurocrisis might spread, as well as the slow pace of economic recovery in many Member States, have meant that these urgent measures have dominated the European agenda. As a result, other issues linked to the external dimension of the European agenda, but which also have an impact on its internal policies, have been postponed.
Nevertheless, this external dimension cannot and must not be forgotten, particularly bearing in mind the aspirations triggered by the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty and the launch of the European External Action Service. How would it describe the state of relations between the European Union and China? What are the prospects for possible negotiations between the European Union and China on foreign investment in EU territory, which might contribute to economic growth and job creation? What potential areas of convergence can be identified in a possible closer relationship between the European Union and China in the future?
Both sides agree about their interdependance and the need to continue on the path of cooperation. The Commissioner responsible for Agriculture and Rural Development and the Commissioner responsible for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response visited China recently and had constructive discussions respectively about rural development, and disaster-risk management. Some of the new areas to be highlighted will derive from the above recent visits to China,while others will include global issues such as water and food security, as well as transport.
Trade, investment and economic issues will remain high on the agenda, as well as the promotion of people-to-people exchanges and enhanced cooperation on energy. The sudden cessation of flights led to thousands of paying passengers not being able to travel to their booked destinations, with the company unable to refund them directly. Whether airline passengers, as customers of any failed business who have not received a service for which they have paid, are able to obtain a refund will be dependent on whether there are sufficient funds available to meet their claim.
The liquidator will distribute to creditors any funds that they are able to realise in accordance with the priorities set by national law. The Commission cannot therefore comment on whether affected passengers will receive a refund either at all, in part or in full or the timescale in which such a refund might be made. The Commission does not intend to revise or introduce new legislation to address this issue at this stage, but instead to issue best practice guidelines to assist national regulatory authorities. Korkean edustajan, varapuheenjohtaja Catherine Ashtonin komission puolesta antama vastaus.
Ajoneuvojen varustelu saatiin valmiiksi Sopimus tarvitaan, koska operaation mandaatti on muuttunut. Ajoneuvot luovutettiin liikkuvien turvapalvelujen tarjoajalle The vehicles were shipped to Erbil, but up to now have not been driven so much as a yard. The mission is, however, renting the armoured cars that it needs from a security company. Why were these vehicles purchased and does the mission intend to use them in the future? How much did they cost? How can the purchase of these armoured cars be justified when the mission is renting vehicles serving the same purpose from a security company?
Meanwhile, a temporary solution — procuring mobile security services from a private provider together with the necessary vehicles was deemed as the most convenient option by EEAS and in agreement with the Commission. But what does reading really mean? The result is a book which is theoretical and intimate at the same time, an intense, autobiographical inquiry of what reading means to our life, a passionate praise of the book in a time when many consider it dead. Recalcati delves into the meanders of this experience, showing us how reading is not scholarly study, mere accumulation of knowledge, but a way to offer life the chance of an encounter with the most secret part of itself, an opportunity of renovation, expansion and transformation.
Because the journey into a book is a journey into love.

Ricerca sul campo e fotografia: Produzione, luoghi di lavoro e sapere umano al tempo della quarta rivoluzione industriale. Richard Mosse has spent the past few years documenting the ongoing refugee and migration crisis facing the Middle East, North Africa and Europe. At the crux of this work is an attempt to reveal and question how governments and societies perceive refugees, while simultaneously foregrounding the inhumane conditions they endure.
His last project is a meticulous documentation of refugee camps and staging sites located across migration routes from the Middle East and Central Asia into the European Union, focusing on the punishing environments in which refugees endure a byzantine state of limbo. Drawing attention to the provisional architecture and organization of refugee camps, Mosse highlights the ways refugees and migrants are excluded from participating or contributing to our modern societies.
Richard Mosse was born in in Ireland and is based in New York. In he won the Prix Pictet — the prestigious global award in photography and sustainability — for his project Heat Maps. Courtesy of the artist and MACK. For the exhibition Pendulum. Moving goods, Moving people , the MAST Foundation presents a series of movies on the themes of global mobility, transport, and migrations. Series organised in collaboration with Cineteca di Bologna. In a desolate corner of the Sicilian countryside lives a family of farmers who have worked the land for generations, inextricably bound to nature and to the mysterious spirits of the dead which have always accompanied the living in those areas.
Their never-changing everyday life is interrupted by news from the New World describing it as a land of astonishing abundance. Salvatore decides to sell everything—home, land, and animals—to bring his children and his elderly mother to a place where work and bread aren't as scarce. But to become citizens of the New World, they have to die and be born again.
The four must abandon their archaic habits and superstitions, striving to toughen both body and mind, learning to obey and to pledge their loyalty to a new authority, and surrendering to modernity. They'll have to do it in the suspended time of the ocean crossing: Not all of them are destined to cross through the gates of Paradise. Ellis, starring Roberto De Niro and written by Erich Roth, is a work that shakes up our collective memory, bringing us back to the early years of Ellis Island, the gate of entry to the New World.
The documentary is set in the abandoned sanatorium on the island facing New York, and through the touching art installation Unframed by the French photographer JR, it recalls the story of the immigrants who literally made America what it is. The men, women, and children who fled from poverty, discrimination, and dictatorships in search of a new life in the early decades of the twentieth century foreshadow the destiny of those who, in a globalised world, now seek the same opportunities for safety and dignity in America and Europe.
At dawn he should oversee the largest concrete pour of his career thus far. His boss has assigned the task to him because his record over the last nine years has been flawless: A fast-paced cinematographic experience in which the timing of the events coincides with the timing of the narration, this film literally captures us, catapulting us into a car seat next to the protagonist and setting before us the themes of fairness, of assuming one's responsibility, no matter how uncomfortable and punitive it may be, and of the extreme fragility of the moral constructs on which we build our existence and our certainties.
Simon is a swimming instructor in a city-run pool in Calais on the north coast of France. His marriage is on the rocks, and he does his job on autopilot until he meets Bilal, a young, undocumented Kurd who has has crossed Europe to reach England and the woman he loves. After a failed attempt to cross the border, the only way Bilal can realise his dream is by swimming across the Channel, and Simon is the only one who can help him train: Ninety percent of goods we consume in the West are manufactured in faraway lands and brought to us by ship. The maritime shipping industry is a key player in the world economy, and it forms the basis of our model of modern civilisation; without it, it would be impossible to fulfil the ever-growing demands of our societies.
Yet the functioning and rules of this industry remain unknown to most, while its hidden costs affect the lives of us all. Due to their size, freight ships can no longer berth at city harbours; they have moved far away from the eyes of public opinion, behind gates and barriers. But who pulls the strings in this billion-dollar business? To what extent does this industry influence national politics? How does it impact the environment? Taking us on a journey through the oceans, the film offers a courageous investigation into international maritime shipping and sheds light on the consequences of an all but invisible industry.

He once was a teacher, but his new job earns him three times his old salary. He drives all over Europe, alone or with his co-driver Maki, a thirty-year-old with a young son waiting for him at home, a man increasingly uncertain about whether to continue in this line of work. Branko's phone calls with his wife or son are the only contact he has with his family.
The result of five years of field research, Tir shows life on the road for its protagonist, the professional actor Branko Zavrsan, who actually did earn the driving license required by the highway code. Between roads, motorways, junctions, and warehouses for loading goods, a route is plotted along non-places, all identical yet separated by a geographical distance that hides the weight of the hard work under which Branko seems to test his own resistance. This film examines the current political crisis in North Africa, emphasising the responsibility of Western powers, in particular the United States and France, which apply foreign policies based on aggressive economic strategies to the detriment of basic ethical principles.
These policies have generated tremendous instability, resulting in chaos and repeated episodes of violence, such as the attacks made by the Moroccan police on the Sahrawi, who were encamped in the desert in November of in a peaceful protest for human rights. The focus of the narration is the Western Sahara, which according to the UN is the only African territory still subject to colonialism and worsening conditions and rights in recent years. One October day at dawn, in a major railway station in Pennsylvania, a careless worker has to move a very long, stopped train onto another track and engages the automatic controls.
The train starts to move and immediately picks up speed with no one on board. Since most of its load is toxic waste and chemical products, the consequences of it derailing could be devastating. If the toxins were to leak, they would be capable of decimating an entire city. Three hundred kilometres later, the veteran engineer Frank Barnes and the young, newly hired conductor Will Gordon have just begun their shifts. What they don't yet know is that a chaotic, frenetic day awaits them that is destined to turn them into heroes.
To whom do the Alps belong? What and how many products are shipped each day on lorries and trains through tunnels and Alpine passes, and how does this transport affect the everyday life of the citizens throughout Europe? How does it affect the natural environment? Through the emblematic stories of railway workers, lorry drivers, motorists, environmental tourists, and other travellers, this film seeks to highlight the importance of these questions and find answers while journeying through the mountains of Italy, France, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, and Slovenia to discover the complexities of transporting people and goods, along with some of the key players in these movements that flow like rushing streams, constantly threatening to flood.
A high-tension thriller and at the same a detailed portrait of the myriad side effects of globalisation, this film recounts the hijacking of the US cargo ship Maersk Alabama by a band of Somali pirates. Inspired by a true story, the events primarily rotate around the figure of the Alabama's commander, Captain Richard Phillips, and his Somali counterpart, Muse, who takes him hostage. The face-to-face conflict between the two begins when Muse and his crew aim for Phillips' unarmed ship, but in the course of the events the two men find themselves at the mercy of forces completely beyond their control.
The film is much more than the tale of how a cargo ship was hijacked by pirates and the breathtaking odyssey of an accidental hero: Marcel Marx, a bohemian and former author, chooses to withdraw to the port city of Le Havre, where his honourable but unprofitable profession as a shoeshiner gives him the feeling of being closer to the people.
He keeps his literary ambition alive and leads a simple, quiet life arranged around the corner pub, his work, and his wife, Arletty, when suddenly destiny catapults a young immigrant boy from sub-Saharan Africa into his life. The heart of the film lies entirely in the relationship between the befuddled shoeshiner and the young migrant. The man, who in the meantime has discovered that his wife is ill, takes care of the boy and tries to help him get to England, creating a network among his neighbours and seeking to escape the notice of a disenchanted policeman.

The MAST Foundation, without betraying its mission of exploring the themes of work and industry, presents an exhibition focused on in the USA, not only to celebrate a key date but also to pay homage to photojournalism in the s. The year marked a radical change in public attitudes and beliefs. Photojournalism had a dominating role in the shaping of public attitudes at the time. Photojournalism played a crucial part in triggering this transformation: A celebrated artist and experimenter animated by contagious enthusiasm and a tireless spirit of exploration, for over two years Nino has accompanied the children and educators in their discovery of the photographic media as a form of writing and a surprising mechanism for the creation of storytelling images.
Under his guidance, children from 3 to 5 years of age have learned to make use of camera-less techniques such as oxidation, cellograms, polarigrams, lightgrams and photograms, discovering new ways of observing, telling about and transforming their world, with method and fantasy.
