The increase in refugees and other migrants from low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) to the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) since 20111 has made the development of infectious disease guidance a public health priority for EU/EEA Member States. High mobility, poor living conditions, barriers to accessing healthcare and potential public health risks for newly arriving migrant populations and host populations are leading public health concerns. As a result, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) called for evidence-based guidance to support tailored public health approaches to health assessment (voluntary screening) and prevention (vaccination) among newly arrived migrants. This guidance aims to support public health and health system professionals to screen and treat international migrants.2. Migrant populations include economic migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and irregular migrants who may have been forced to flee conflict, natural disasters or ...

The Dublin regulation, allocating asylum claims to the first port of call on a migrants journey, is unfit for purpose. The European Parliament has come to a shared position that guarantees fair treatment of refugees and shared responsibility in the EU. Now its up to member states to do their share, writes Cornelia Ernst.. Dr. Cornelia Ernst is an MEP for the German party DIE LINKE since 2009. She is a spokesperson for her parliamentary delegation and a member of the LIBE committee of the European Parliament. In preparing the new Dublin reform, Ernst was the shadow rapporteur for the left-wing group in the European Parliament GUE/NGL.. Thirty-seven years ago, twelve EU member states, including Germany, signed a treaty under international law to regulate which EU member state would be responsible for examining an asylum application. The agreement was named after the place of its signature, Dublin.. The rules entered into force in 1997 and since then, the EU member state that was first entered by ...
Bellona Europa Director Jonas Helseth and BRALs Lievin Chemin, European Parliament, 23 Nov 2017 Credit: Bellona Europa These fuels use five times more electricity than an electric car to travel the same distance, and have all the same qualities as fossil fuels, such as CO2 and air polluting NOx and PM. "Labelling synthetic fuels as renewable and including them in the RED poses a direct threat to electro-mobility uptake on the continent", warned Helseth.. Another key piece of legislation is the currently reformed Clean Vehicles Directive, which offers a once-in-a-decade opportunity to enforce an effective tool for the public procurement of clean transport fleets. In the coming months, discussions on this piece of legislation will be getting underway in the European Parliament and EU Member States. When it comes to the implementation of the directives requirements, however, it comes down to cities and public authorities.. Brussels needs to step up action The debate thus provided a zoom into ...

The following is a guest blog post from Andrea Corazza, European Advocacy Officer, Global Health Advocates, and was originally published on End the Neglect.*. Through its policies, legislation and bilateral/regional trade agreements, the European Union (EU) has a major impact on global health both in terms of research and development (R&D) of new and improved medicines for Poverty-Related and Neglected Diseases[1] (PRNDs) and their accessibility to populations in developing countries.. To ensure that EU policies deliver a coherent, comprehensive and pro-active response to address these issues, Global Health Advocates and the Médecins Sans Frontières Access Campaign created the European Parliament Working Group on Innovation, Access to Medicines and Poverty-Related Diseases together with Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) back in 2009.. This Working Group provides a platform to ensure that global health issues remain high on the EU agenda and to advocate for the adoption of EU policies ...

Downloadable! Agri-environmental schemes (AES) of the European Union are the most important measure in terms of share on the public budget for Rural Development. Although the farmers uptake of AES is expected to strongly impact even farmers behavior, in the literature the attempts to investigate this impact are scarce. Our study applies a difference-in-differences propensity score matching estimator in order to perform a comparative analyses of the effects of AE measures on farmers practises and economic performances across five EU Member States. Results show differences in the AES effects across country as well as differences across farmers of the same country according to what extent the farm income is dependent on the AE payment. Our analyses suggests that the AE payment in Spain is not enough to compensate the large drop of the per hectare income after participation and the AE uptake does not seem to promote effectively environmental-friendly farm practises. In France and Italy the sustainable

Downloadable! The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the competitive performance of different European countries at sector level in the intra-EU market from 1995 to 2011, comparing food industry and agricultural sector. In particular, we aim to assess the effect of the EU enlargement (first period) and the economic crisis (second period) on the competitiveness of EU countries. The data come from the Eurostat database of international trade. The competitive performance of EU countries is measured through several trade indices, such as Export and Import Market Share, Revealed Comparative Advantage, Net Export Index, and Vollrath indices, analysing their values over the last fifteen years. Our analysis showed that, in the EU countries, agriculture and food industry do not reveal strong differences in competitive performance during the last fifteen years. Among big countries, France and Spain showed a continuous worsening competitive performance. A similar trend is found for Belgium. On the contrary, the

Individuals with latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) are the reservoir of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in a population and as long as this reservoir exists, elimination of tuberculosis (TB) will not be feasible. In 2013, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) started an assessment of benefits and risks of introducing programmatic LTBI control, with the aim of providing guidance on how to incorporate LTBI control into national TB strategies in European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) Member States and candidate countries. In a first step, experts from the Member States, candidate countries, and international and national organisations were consulted on the components of programmatic LTBI control that should be considered and evaluated in literature reviews, mathematical models and cost-effectiveness studies. This was done through a questionnaire and two interactive discussion rounds. The main components identified were identification and targeting of risk groups, determinants
Tuberculosis (TB) is decreasing in the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA), but remains a significant public health problem. Although pulmonary TB accounts for the majority of the cases and is the main transmissible form of the disease, extrapulmonary TB also contributes to the burden of disease and does not receive specific attention in international control strategies. We performed a descriptive analysis to assess the burden and trends of extrapulmonary TB in EU/EEA countries. During 2002-11, 167,652 cases of extrapulmonary TB were reported by the 30 Member States. Extrapulmonary TB accounted for 19.3% of all notified cases, ranging from 5.8% to 44.4% among the Member States. Overall, TB notification rates decreased in 2002-11 due to a decrease in pulmonary TB. Notification rates of extrapulmonary TB remained stable at 3.4 per 100,000 in 2002 and 3.2 per 100,000 in 2011. Thus the proportion of extrapulmonary TB increased from 16.4% in 2002 to 22.4% in 2011. Of all extrapulmonary TB cases

The good news about tuberculosis (TB) is that in the 29 reporting European Union/European Economic Area countries the number of incident TB cases is falling, with an average annual decline of 6% since 2011 [1]. The bad news is that, however you look at it, multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) and extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB) remain a major clinical and public health problem worldwide, particularly in former Soviet Union countries and Central Asia [2-4]. Less than a quarter of the total estimated MDR-TB cases were actually diagnosed in 2012 [2], with dramatic consequences from an individual and a community perspective (i.e. increased morbidity, mortality and drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis transmission). It was estimated that 450 000 incident patients developed MDR-TB and 170 000 died from MDR-TB. More than half of such cases die, fail or stop taking treatment and only one in three cases in reporting countries completes the long treatment course (,20 months). The treatment success ...
EU Directive 2010/63/EU is the European Union (EU) legislation "on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes" and is one of the most stringent ethical and welfare standards worldwide. The Directive repealed EU Directive 86/609/EEC. It became formally applied across the EU on January 1, 2013. It protects live non-human vertebrates including independently feeding larval forms and foetal forms of mammals from the last third of their normal development, and live cephalopods. The Directive is based on the Council of Europe Convention for the Protection of Vertebrate Animals used for Experimental and other Scientific Purposes (ETS123) established in 1986. This Convention applies to a wider Europe, beyond just the EU. The Directive repealed EU Directive 86/609/EEC. It took nearly two years to revise, beginning in November 2008. It was finalised and signed on September 22, 2010, coming into force on November 9, 2010. Member States were then allowed one year to transpose it into their own ...

Under the Treaty of Lisbon, the Netherlands was to get a 26th seat in the European Parliament. Because this treaty had not yet been ratified by all member states at the time of the elections, this seat could not be given to a party at that time. The State Secretary for the Interior, Ank Bijleveld-Schouten, made a proposal for allocating it if the Lisbon treaty were to be ratified by all member states, but this had not been accepted by parliament at the time of the election. According to the proposal made by the government, the seat would be awarded to the Party for Freedom. The Party for the Animals contested this proposal, claiming that the minister ignored part of the Electoral Councils opinion. They raised their objection after the official results came in. Under the Electoral Councils opinion, the Party for the Animals should have gained the seat.[4]. Several parties in the States-General had already stated that this changed the election rules after the elections, and, if the rules were to ...

The European Parliament Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety backed the compromise on glyphosate on Tuesday morning. The Members of the European Parliament rejected the objection of the communist group, which called for an immediate ban of glyphosate. The environmental policy spokesman, Dr. Peter Liese, of the EPP-Group in the European Parliament welcomed the result: "The European Parliament voted already last year for timely limited extension of the approval of glyphosate with specific conditions. Even if I could have imagined some details differently, the appeal committee followed the parliaments recommendations yesterday. The original proposal of the Commission, namely 15 years renewal, was as wrong as the request for an immediate ban of glyphosate. Glyphosate must be subject to strict conditions and I hope that we will find an alternative in the coming years. However, I believe that if it is used according to strict rules its application is acceptable.". ...

The European Commission will begin pilot investigations, the first stage of infringement proceedings, against member states that have not transposed the directive on the sulphur content of marine fuels. The Commission has confirmed that it will take appropriate and proportionate measures to address the fact that the so called scrubber technologies used to clean sulphur emissions from exhaust fumes cause sludge that is not easy to dispose of in some ports. The Commission has asked member states to provide detailed information on EU port acceptance of scrubbers, in particular the open loop systems which discharge water that has a chemical composition that may not be compatible with water regulations applied in protected areas like ports. Shipping companies will have to either use cleaner fuels, ...
India. European Commission May Ban Indian Shrimp. "Speculation" among United Kingdom shrimp importers is that the European Union is considering a ban on shrimp imports from India. Trade sources say that there have been increasing rejections of Indian shrimp because they contained antibiotics like nitrofurans and chloramphenicol. In addition to the UK ban, the European Commission (the executive arm of the European Union) is also believed to be blacklisting exporters whose products have been rejected.. The Commission is dissatisfied with the continued non-compliance and the lack of progress made by the Indian authorities. An advisor to Seafish, which represents the UK seafood industry, wrote to importers: "While the Commission has not taken any official action (the issue does not appear on any EU agenda) the future of Indian aquaculture imports is looking bleak. The directorate-general, health and food safety is seriously worried about the continuing finds of antibiotics in Indian shrimp and ...
|p|The worlds first transnational, digital right of initiative, the European Citizens Initiative (ECI) took effect on April 1, 2012, when the EU Regulation on the citizens initiative (No 2011/2011) entered into force. The ECI gives citizens within European Union (EU) Member States the right to call on the European Commission to propose new or change existing EU legislation. For an ECI to be considered, the subject matter must be within the Commissions legislative competence and organizers must gather at a minimum 1 million signatures (0.2 percent of the EUs population of 502 million) from at least 1⁄4 of EU Member States (currently seven) in one year. Nine months on, the new instrument has met with several difficulties in this experimental phase of implementation, and only eight ECIs have been able to start online signature collection.|/p|
Under Article 43 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), the Council, on a proposal from the Commission, decides on the rules of the common agricultural policy (CAP) jointly with the European Parliament in accordance with the codecision procedure.. The codecision procedure has been applied in the CAP decision-making process since the Treaty of Lisbon entered into force in December 2009. However, the Council does not have to hear the European Parliament on measures on fixing prices, levies, aid and quantitative limitations and on the fixing and allocation of fishing opportunities. The Council makes these decisions alone, based on the Commissions proposal.. In the new system, the line between the competences of the European Parliament and the Council is somewhat blurred. It is likely to become more clearly established through practical legislative work.. In the Agriculture and Fisheries Council, Member States are represented by the ministers of agriculture and ...

According to Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Europe, the European Commission has presented to Member States its draft regulations to ban the neonicotinoids: imidacloprid, clothianidin and thiamethoxam. Three draft regulations to ban the three bee-toxic neonicotinoids across the entire EU were submitted to the Standing Committee on Plant, Animal, Food and Feed. These will be open to comments from Member States and a first vote on the Commissions proposal could take place in May 2017. The new proposals are for a complete ban on the three neonicotinoid uses in fields, with the only exception being for plants grown in greenhouses. There would need to be a positive vote from 55% of the Member States representing 65% of EU citizens (qualified majority) to implement the proposal.. In 2013, the European Commission voted to suspend the use of the neonicotinoid pesticides for two years in order to protect severely declining and threatened bee populations. The moratorium came several months after the ...
Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) are used as an important regulatory instrument to protect workers health from adverse effects of chemical exposures. The OELs mirror the outcome of the risk assessment and risk management performed by the standard setting actor. In paper I the OELs established by 18 different organisations or national regulatory agencies from the industrialised world were compared. The comparison concerned: (1) what chemicals have been selected and (2) the average level of exposure limits for all chemicals. In paper II the OELs established by 7 different national regulatory agencies of EU member states are compared to those of the European Commission (EC). In addition to the same comparisons as performed in the first study a comparison level was introduced (3) the similarity between the OELs of these EU member states and the OELs recommended by the EC.List of OELs were collected through the web-pages of, and e-mail communication with the standard-setting agencies.

Most European Union countries are at risk of missing their targets for reducing health-damaging air pollution for both 2020 and 2030, the European Commission said on Friday.
Serious defects in the design and methodology of a paper by Séralini et al. mean it does not meet acceptable scientific standards and there is no need to re-examine previous safety evaluations of genetically modified maize NK603. These are the conclusions of separate and independent assessments carried out by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and six EU Member States following publication of the paper in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology on 19 September 2012.
The lack of hard data makes any country-by-country cost-benefit analysis of AML policy impossible at the moment. But by using the estimates that are available, and correcting these estimates for the price level and size of the countries, the chapter is able to estimate almost all cost components and some benefits for each EU Member State. This study estimates that the total costs of the 27 EU Member States are about 2 billion Euros, together with an immeasurable reduction in privacy and some inefficiency in the operation of society. Since most of the benefits of AML/CTF policy are hard or impossible to estimate, the cost benefit dilemma is basically reduced to the question: Does the EU want to spent about 2 billion Euros to obtain potential benefits, which include an unquantifiable reduction in money laundering, less crime in general, a reduced damage effect on the real economy and less risk for the financial sector?
The European Union is facing new challenges. Its population is ageing fast and recent enlargements widened the health gaps between Member States", stated European Union Health Commissioner Markos Kyprianou. "Migration, the mobility of health professionals and patients, the risks posed by pandemics and bioterrorism, all represent additional challenges. So do globalisation and climate change. The time has come for the European Union to develop a strong and comprehensive strategy on health.". The European Commission underlines the importance of research to the strategy, noting that "health policy must be based on the best scientific evidence derived form sound data and information, and relevant research".. Research has an important role to play in achieving the three key objectives of the strategy.

Anna Záborská: In the European Parliament, it is possible to raise awareness of those engaged in taking a political or legislative decision. The problems of the people with neurodegenerative diseases - and particularly with Alzheimers disease - as well as those of their carers must not be left out of the picture. Our Carers Interest Group in the European Parliament is a real medium for reflection and setting up of strategies. It enables the institutional decision makers to get acquainted with the very problems of the carers thanks to the contribution NGOs such as Alzheimer Europe or the European Federation of Unpaid Parents and Carers at Home (FEFAF), as well as their national associations. During my first mandate in the European Parliament, I wrote a report on womens poverty in Europe and another one on inter-generational solidarity. Of course, I called on the policy makers to officially recognise the contribution of the women and the men who care for a dependant person. It is just a matter ...
Also on Wednesday, Arlene Foster, the DUP leader, said that she is ready to fly to London to examine finer points of Brexit agreement on the Irish border, but more work is needed.. The intense time pressure on the PM to get European Union agreement to move to trade talks will only grow with the Council summit looming large and the risk of trade talks being delayed until well into the New Year.. "In Northern Ireland we guarantee there will be no hard border", May told a press conference with Juncker.. But they hit out at what they say are attempts by some in their party to paint a no-deal scenario in which the United Kingdom failed to agree a trade agreement as "some status quo which the United Kingdom simply opts to adopt". The EU expects Theresa May to formally agree to a Brexit deal on Friday.. Mrs May would likely go back to discussions with the DUP but with 27 other European Union countries needing to sign off on "sufficient progress", the deadline may fall before the Council on ...

European Union diplomats have rejected a proposal to suspend direct aid to the Palestinian Authority because some EU countries consider the measure "too brutal".. Representatives of the 25 EU member states refused to endorse a European Commission proposal that would have suspended co-operation with the PA, led by Hamas, the militant Islamist group.. Countries such as France and the UK said it would send a wrong and even "brutal" signal if the EU halted aid to the PA without first developing ideas on alternative ways of delivering assistance.. Some EU officials argue that eventually Europe will have to engage with Hamas, which, together with its parent group the Muslim Brotherhood, is becoming one of the Arab worlds most popular and electorally formidable organisations.. The debate indicates Europes more gradual approach to demands agreed with the US on the Hamas-led PA. While Washington insists the PA must renounce violence, recognise Israel and abide by past agreements, some European ...
Linda McAvan: Over the course of its current 5 year mandate, the European Parliament has been the venue for various awareness-raising events, seminars, special interest groups and workshops. These are designed to bring together organisations, MEPs and EU policy-makers to discuss the treatment and research of Alzheimers disease in a European context. The Parliament also approved a wide-ranging research programme proposal - with a total budget of €50 billion over 5 years - which includes a specific reference to brain and related diseases. This fund has ensured that research into Alzheimers disease has received vital financial support from the European Union. More recently, the European Parliament adopted a Written Declaration on Alzheimers disease, which calls on policy makers in the European Union and Member States to make the disease a European public health priority. It also includes specific reference to supporting sufferers, their carers and Alzheimers associations. As this Written ...

As previously touched upon, the UK might be in a weak position to get itself a favorable deal out of the Brexit negotiations. From the European side things wont likely become easier with the duration of the negotiations. Inter-institutional relations might come under increased pressure and intra-institutional coordination could come under increased demand for democratic intervention.. One of the key aspects to consider when looking at the Brexit negotiations, which has until now not been very deeply in the purview of the public, is the interinstitutional balance. So far we know that Michel Barnier has been appointed as the chief negotiator within the European Commission, Didier Seeuws to run the UK task force for the Council, and Guy Verhofstadt to offer input for the European Parliament. It is understood that the European Commission holds the technical expertise and will be guiding when it comes to that. The Council UK task force will provide coordination between the member states positions, ...

The accession negotiations between Turkey and the European Union began in 2005, on the grounds of the application for EU membership that Turkey had submitted in 1987. Today, after four years of negotiations the outcome remains tentative, mostly because the prospect of a Turkish EU membership raises much opposition and controversy evident discomfort among governments and citizens of the EU members.. Although Turkey gradually employs all the necessary political and economical reforms to meet the criteria for the European Union membership, there is a growing concern regarding its potential EU accession. The differences cited by those opposed to Turkish EU membership focus on the Muslim factor, geographical position, population size, inefficient agricultural sector, extreme protectionism for certain industries, unsettled external political conflicts, unsolved historical responsibilities, violation of human rights, relative social backwardness and limited civilian control over the armed ...

Press Release: As Panama Papers break, Europe plans to water down company ownership transparency. Just as the Panama papers reveal the mayhem that can be caused by secret shell companies, the European Union is set to relax ownership transparency requirements for shell companies in its forthcoming Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive. The Tax Justice Network is calling for the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Heads of State of European Union Member States to address three serious shortcomings in the fourth European Anti-Money Laundering Directive (2015/849,) a common European framework designed to establish an EU-wide approach to preventing the laundering of the proceeds of crime. It is scheduled to come into force by mid-2017 across the European Union.. Unless the proposed rules are tightened, shell company abuses will become easier in Europe.. The common thread in the Panama Papers is secrecy, enabling perpetrators to launder illicit proceeds of corruption, tax evasion, ...

On 26 October 2007 the Joint Committee of the European Economic Area, comprising Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway, agreed to incorporate the Emissions Trading Directive 2003/87/EC and a number of implementing provisions into the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). This agreement allows the above three countries to participate in the EU internal market. The decision entered into force 29 December 2007 following parliamentary approval from the EEA states. The Norwegian National Allocation Plan (NAP) sets out the framework for the allocation to installations obliged to surrender emission allowances under the 2008-12 EU emissions trading scheme, which Norway entered as of 1 January 2008. The Norwegian emission trading scheme (ETS) will cover 35 - 40% of the greenhouse gas emissions from Norwegian sources, and hence become a vital part of the Norwegian efforts to ensure compliance with the Kyoto Protocol. The petroleum sector, excluded under Norways previous domestic ETS, will be included ...

2017-10-06 The Swedish magazine, "Aktuell Hållbarhet" reports on the latest developments regarding the new criteria for endocrine disruptors: "Yesterday, the European Parliament blocked the Commissions proposal on criteria for identifying endocrine disrupting substances. The Parliament believes that the Commission has exceeded its mandate by proposing exceptions for individual substances in the legislation. The consequence is that the Commission needs to make a new proposal.. The proposal presented/submitted by the Commission just over a year ago was approved by a majority of EU member states in July this year, while Sweden and Denmark voted against the proposal. Sweden has also sued the Commission for inaction on the issue, and got in 2015 a positive verdict from the European Court of Justice. Following a lengthy and elaborate process of developing criteria for limiting the use of endocrine disrupting substances in the EU, they were just awaiting approval from the Parliament and the Council ...

Christopher Bookers piece on immigration (24 July) requires multiple clarifications. First, the UK was not forced to allow migrants from new EU Member States to work here in 2004. EU rules allowed for a seven-year transition period without access to labour markets, but the UK and two other Member States chose not to apply it. Second, the UK itself decides which non-EU migrants it lets in and how long they stay. Third, even for EU migrants there is no automatic right of residence. They must prove they can support themselves. Fourth, protection of genuine refugees is established by the Geneva Convention. But the European Commission has put forward to national Ministers and MEPs proposals to reinforce procedures, to avoid asylum shopping and ensure asylum requests are more fairly distributed among Member States ...
The European Parliament has lifted the immunity of far-right leader Marine Le Pen in a defamation case, at the request of authorities in her native France.. The National Front leader, who lost last months French presidential election to Emmanuel Macron, is accused of defamation by Christian Estrosi, the mayor of the southern city of Nice.. She alleged in May 2015 that Mr Estrosi financed a leading conservative Islamic group in France by allowing them to pay very low rent on a mosque, and said he was therefore morally complicit with jihadists.. Le Pen already lost immunity in March in a case over tweets of graphic images of executions by Islamic State and risks losing it in a case involving alleged misuse of EU funds.. In their own states territory, MEPs enjoy immunity as accorded to members of their own parliament. The French constitution provides immunity in cases related to opinions expressed or votes cast by lawmakers during official duties.. Earlier this week, the European Parliament ...

Background. Given its high impact on the healthcare service, the management of breast cancer is a relevant issue for all European Union (EU) countries. The three tests assessed in this core health technology assessment (HTA)- uPA/PAI-1 (FEMTELLE®, American Diagnostica) based on immunostaining techniques and MammaPrint® (Agendia) and Oncotype DX® (Genomic Health), based on gene expression profiling-measure multiple markers within the tumour that may indicate how the tumour is likely to develop. The potential clinical utility of the tests lies in their ability to discriminate between patients who will benefit to a greater or lesser extent from a therapeutic intervention. The assessment of technologies of this type could be of interest to all the EU member states.. The uPA/PAI-1, MammaPrint and Oncotype DX tests are intended to predict the likelihood of breast cancer recurrence in women and to support the tailoring of treatment to the individual patient, which may reduce the number of women ...
