students

The EU spends 0.8% less of its GDP on R&D than the US and 1.5% less than Japan, prompting many of the world’s best researchers and innovators to go there instead, says the European Commission. This update of EU rules, backed by 578 votes to 79 with 21 abstentions, would create better conditions to make the EU more attractive to third-country nationals seeking opportunities to do research, study, take part in a student exchange, or do paid or unpaid training, voluntary service or au pairing. "Other countries in the world are doing a be... Lees Meer »

microphone

O’Reilly told euro-deputies in the parliament’s petitions committee on Tuesday (26 November) that the border agency cannot distance itself from rights violations committed during its joint operations with member states. The Warsaw-based border Frontex had earlier rejected her recommendation to set up an internal system whereby migrants could file complaints if they feel their rights were breached. “An institution’s failure to implement an ombudsman recommendation should be a rare event,” said O’Reilly. Frontex, for its part, says it is up... Lees Meer »

EU-commision

According to the European Commission, each year Europe spends 0.8% of GDP less than the US and 1.5% less than Japan on Research and Development (R&D). Many of the best researchers and innovators are moving to countries where they get better conditions. This update of current EU rules would introduce fairer conditions and make the EU more attractive to third-country nationals seeking opportunities to do research, study, take part in a student exchange, or do paid or unpaid training, voluntary service or au pairing.

“We finally have agreement on a Directive that manages temporary, legal migration and ensures protection of workers from exploitation. It will be a strong tool to ensure humane conditions for low wage workers, discourage undercutting, and benefit good employers”, said Parliament’s rapporteur Claude Moraes (S&D, UK) on the compromise. These rules, the first to be agreed at EU level on seasonal work, will not affect the right of member states to decide how many seasonal workers they allow in. Member states will also be free to widen the de... Lees Meer »

politics

14 years later, I am very grateful for having the opportunity as the Commissioner for Home Affairs to have been part of this process the past years. One of the areas where I have devoted enormous amounts of time and energy from day one as Commissioner is to create a Common European Asylum System within the EU. And I am very proud to say that about two months ago we finally adopted the Asylum package, one of the cornerstones of the area of freedom security and justice. It is fair to say that in 1999 not many would have bet that we would ge... Lees Meer »

How will these new measures protect people from housing bubbles such as the ones that took place in Spain and Ireland? These measures will make irresponsible lending more difficult. Credit institutions will have to give much more information to consumers and will have to carry out an in-depth assessment of the borrowers. There will also be higher requirements on the valuation of the residential property and on the risk analysis of the market. There will be a seven-day reflection period, which could be longer if member states so decide. Co... Lees Meer »
