Does it intend to use the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund in order to help the workers find alternative employment or retrain? The Commission is deeply concerned at the social and economic consequences that the closure of the Alcoa plant in Portovesme Sardinia may bring.
Where it proves impossible to maintain employment at the company and its suppliers or sellers at the current level and workers have to be made redundant, Italy can apply for support from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund EGF. It is noteworthy that following the failure of the Council to agree on a Commission proposal to prolong the so-called crisis derogation which expired at the end of , it is no more possible to monitor the EGF in cases of redundancies caused by the economic and financial crisis as such. The matter has in part been exacerbated by the requirement to use passwords to access workplace systems as well as private emails and social media.
On top of these, individuals need to memorise at least the pin codes of their bank and credit cards. Recent information breaches clearly indicate that there is a pressing need to get rid of passwords altogether. The technology giant IBM stated in its December forecast that passwords will begin to disappear within the next five years.
Instead the company envisions readers which will identify individuals based on voice, facial features, the iris of the eye or a combination thereof. An alternative scenario is having sites such as Facebook or Google developed into what might be called general keys to the web. Users can already sign in to Facebook and from there log into other online services which may contain strictly private information. It is uncertain, though, whether Internet users are willing to hand this power to multinational companies. It is therefore likely that extensive information security breaches will persuade companies and governments in particular to abandon the use of passwords and adopt stronger identification instead, possibly along the lines of the biometric recognition envisaged by IBM.
Atualmente, o Regulamento CE n. Since , local and regional partners have been able to set up European Groupings of Territorial Cooperation EGTC with a common legal framework that helps them overcome differing national rules and regulations. An EGTC may be made up of members from the territory of at least two Member States and one or more third countries or overseas territories.
Consequently, EGTCs normally operate in more than one Member State and aim to facilitate the setting-up and subsequent development of territorial cooperation projects. The proposed regulation states that, in the event of the participation of various Member States and of one or more third countries or overseas territories, an agreement of this nature between the relevant third country or overseas territory and a participating Member State should suffice.
In the case of the participation of European Union Member States and third countries in the constitution of an EGTC, what is the legal principle that will be applicable to the normal functioning of the Grouping, particularly with respect to tax and social security arrangements for workers? One example is the. In this case, differences refer to both status and size. However, the participation of entities from third countries in an EGTC may be possible where the third country adopts national legislation to create an instrument similar or close to the EGTC or the third country signs agreements with EU Member States in order to enable its authorities to participate in EGTCs.
In its proposal for amending the EGTC Regulation COM final , the Commission explicitly includes the option that entities of different size and legal status from third countries may become members of an EGTC subject to certain conditions. To allow equal treatment, the national laws may be subject to additional ad hoc rules fixed by the EGTC itself.
Venemaalt ei saadud selget vastust. Il Consiglio dei diritti umani del presidente Medvedev ha pubblicato la propria relazione sulla morte di Sergei Magnitsky ad agosto La madre di Sergei Magnitsky ha presentato un'istanza in cui citava funzionari d'alto rango, pubblici ministeri e giudici quali complici dell'arresto arbitrario, della tortura e della morte di Sergei Magnitsky. Gli investigatori che si occupano di questa causa sono gli stessi funzionari indicati da Magnitsky come colpevoli di frode fiscale e di crimini contro lui stesso.
Il servizio europeo per l'azione esterna SEAE e la Commissione hanno seguito attentamente questo caso e sono intervenuti attivamente sulla questione, sia a Bruxelles che nella delegazione dell'UE a Mosca. Recentemente, alcune di queste domande sono state formulate anche per iscritto, nel contesto dello scambio degli elenchi di singoli casi sensibili. In generale, l'UE ha accolto con favore l'indagine indipendente sul caso disposta dal presidente Medvedev, di cui ha attentamente esaminato le conclusioni preliminari.
Tuttavia, resta delusa dal fatto che finora solo i due medici della prigione siano stati incriminati nel caso e molte questioni rimangono senza risposta. L'UE continua a esortare la Russia a portare a pieno compimento l'indagine ufficiale e invita il governo russo a indagare in maniera corretta ed esaustiva su questo caso al fine di assicurare i responsabili alla giustizia senza ulteriori indugi.
Magnickio bylos ir jo mirties. In the two years since Sergei Magnitsky died in Russian custody, the Russian Government has avoided answering some of the most important questions regarding the Magnitsky case and his death. The investigators looking into this case are the same officials named by Magnitsky as guilty of committing the tax theft and of crimes against him.
The case of Sergei Magnitsky has been raised with the Russian authorities many times, including at the highest level. Some of these questions were also asked in written in the recent past, as part of the exchange of lists of individual cases of concern. The EU has also been informed that the investigative committee has signed a broad cooperation agreement with the Presidential Council, whereby for all high profile cases, human rights defenders would be able to be present during the investigation of such cases.
However, it remains disappointing that only two prison doctors have so far been charged in this case, and many questions remain to be addressed. The EU keeps calling on Russia to bring the official investigation to a full conclusion. The EU will continue urging the Russian Government to investigate this case properly and fully and bringing those responsible for wrongdoings to justice with no further delay.
Can the Commission say how many points of entry to European Union territory are accessible to freight labelled as. Can the Commission indicate how many MRL controls were carried out in and at the different points at which hazelnuts from Turkey enter European Union territory? Can the Commission indicate how many of these controls revealed the presence of Carbaryl, Methidathion or Azinphos-methyl, insecticides that are banned for European growers but authorised in Turkey? The Commission is not in the possession of data related to the number of consignments.
Respuesta provisional del Sr. Respuesta complementaria del Sr. The Turkish authorities have not yet informed the Commission about any possible successor scheme, but the Commission will continue to monitor the Turkish regulatory framework. Can the Commission say whether the Turkish authorities have informed it about the possible successor scheme, which the Commission says it is continuing to monitor?
The Turkish authorities have not yet informed the Commission about the possible successor scheme to support their hazelnuts sector. The Commission is investigating this issue and will provide further information to the Honourable Member as soon as possible. The Commission is not informed that the Turkish authorities have implemented a successor scheme to support their hazelnuts sector after the end of the area-based support. The Commission is monitoring the issue and will provide further relevant information to the Honourable Member when available. Theoretisch sollen Tieren nur bei akuten Krankheiten Antibiotika verabreicht werden.

Spot checks carried out in German supermarkets have shown that the chicken sold there often contains antibiotic-resistant bacteria that can also damage human health. The widespread use of antibiotics in animal feed can mean that some medicines such as penicillin no longer have any effect on people who consume resistant bacteria in their food.
In theory, antibiotics should only be administered to animals with acute illnesses. Studies in North-Rhine-Westphalia have shown, however, that antibiotics are often illegally used as growth promoters. Per m. Europos Parlamento paskirti atstovai E. Brok, G. Verhofstadt ir R. This Treaty on stability, coordination and governance in the Economic and Monetary Union has now been drafted and was subject last month to intensive negotiations. Does the Council consider that the European Parliament was sufficiently involved in those negotiations, and will its position be adequately reflected in the final text of this Treaty?
Pursuant to the same treaty provision, the President of the Council must report to the European Parliament on the results of multilateral surveillance. In doing so, the Netherlands has taken a first step towards imposing a ban on khat. The United Kingdom would thus be the only EU country that has not yet classified khat as a narcotic. I have called attention on several occasions to the value of harmonisation between EU Member States in their approach to khat, with a view to stemming the flow of khat to the Swedish market among others.
In response the Commission has, through Commissioner Viviane Reding, referred to the subsidiarity principle and to the fact that Member States determine their own narcotics policies. The smuggling of khat on from the UK to, for example, Sweden, is not only a crime in itself, but also gives rise to other crimes.
This could be prevented by stopping the legal gateway to British airports. This issue remains solely a matter for the Member States concerned, which can use national legislation for placing the substance under control. It must be taken into account that, in most cases, this overcrowding leads to deterioration and even violation of the most basic human rights of persons deprived of liberty, in unacceptably inhumane conditions.
Furthermore, in all Member States a high percentage of prisoners are foreign migrants. Does the Commission intend to implement measures to improve the deplorable conditions to which convicted persons, deprived of their liberty, are condemned? Does the Commission intend to ensure minimum Community standards for life in prison and in Alien Internment Centres that guarantee and ensure respect for the most basic rights of the inmates?
The aim was to achieve EU wide minimum standards and explore the extent to which detention issues impact on mutual trust between judicial systems and consequently on mutual recognition and judicial cooperation more generally within the European Union. The Commission received many replies from Member States as well as from other stakeholders and will carefully analyse all responses before deciding whether any action at European level might be considered. However, the responsibility for detention conditions lies with Member States. Betrifft: Medizinische Versorgung auf Offshore-Parks.
Es gibt keine gesetzliche Regelung, die sich mit der medizinischen Versorgung von Mitarbeitern auf sogenannten Offshore-Parks befasst. Noch liegt die medizinische Versorgung in der Hand der Betreiber, ist aber oft schlecht ausgereift. There are no legal provisions covering the healthcare provided to employees on so-called offshore parks.
Healthcare is still in the hands of the operators, but is often only rudimentary. That is why it often takes several hours for sick or injured workers to be taken to hospital. One of the reasons for this is the poor accessibility of offshore platforms. Would it make sense to have uniform European rules on occupational healthcare on platforms? Moreover, the employer has a general obligation to ensure the safety and health of workers in every aspect relating to work.
Furthermore, the directive requires employers to take the necessary measures for first aid, fire fighting and the evacuation of workers, adapted to the nature of the activities. It applies to all sectors of activity, both public and private, and to any person employed by an employer. The working environment of workers employed on offshore wind farms is therefore fully covered and their employers have an obligation, depending on the outcome of the risk assessment, to put in place adequate prevention and protection measures to avoid or reduce the risk factors relating to their work activities.
If correctly implemented by Member States, the abovementioned legislation provides for sufficient and effective protection of workers. Consequently, the Commission has at present no intention to adopt additional specific health and safety at work standards for workers on offshore wind farms. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons PAHs are a group of substances known for their mutagenic, carcinogenic and teratogenic properties, while many of them are ubiquitously distributed in the environment. These chemicals are contained in a wide range of consumer articles including products which are used by children, e.
This restriction does not yet apply to other uses. Germany has formally requested the Commission to propose a restriction for eight PAH substances covering all articles that could be used by consumers, suggesting a general limit of 0. In the context of Caracal and a stakeholder workshop, the Commission has submitted a proposal for consideration which would only restrict PAHs in consumer articles intended for children under Following comments from stakeholder experts and the REACH Competent Authorities the Commission is currently re-examining the proposal and considering different ways to finalise it within the shortest possible time.
The Commission is committed to the protection of consumers' health, but also to the need to make proposals which are supported by scientific evidence and that take into consideration possible socioeconomic impacts. In case of late payment by the administration, the supplier may claim interest. Since , the average time to receive payment has continued to grow, reaching the record level mentioned above.
With regard to the proportion of late payments, non-payments as a percentage of the total amount invoiced reached 7. So it can be expected that the discretion of the parties will not work. The Commission is aware of the problems faced by European economic operators throughout the European Union that are due to late payment. Late payments impinge on the liquid assets of businesses, complicate their financial management, and eventually affect the competitiveness and viability of SMEs. The Commission therefore is of the opinion that this new Directive represents part of the solution for the structural problems referred to by the Honourable Member.
Many European Union Member States with debt denominated in a foreign currency enter into such swaps. The Commission Eurostat rules ensure that any off-market foreign currency swaps — where the exchange rates used deliberately diverge from the prevailing rates at inception — are properly reflected in government debt statistics. Therefore the exchange rate within a swap cannot be artificially manipulated to reduce reported government debt.
All but one Member States have followed these rules since Il governo italiano si appresta a varare una manovra finanziaria che contiene all'articolo 32 un provvedimento che estende l'autorizzazione delle vendite dei farmaci con ricetta della fascia C fuori dalla farmacia, a favore della grande distribuzione e delle parafarmacie.
La preoccupazione riguarda soprattutto la garanzia del massimo livello di tutela della salute dei cittadini e dell'indipendenza economica e tecnica del professionista impegnato nel campo della salute. These measures would make Italy the only country in the world in which prescription medicines are not sold exclusively in chemists.
This is worrying, in particular in view of the need to guarantee both the highest possible level of public health protection and the economic and technical independence of the professionals working in the health sector. Aihe: Luonnonlohikantojen uhanalaisuus EU:n alueella. Kalastuksella on perinteisesti ollut ja on edelleen suuri merkitys varsinkin pohjoisen jokivarsien asukkaille. This is partly due to fishing in the Baltic Sea, much of which is illegal. Because of this, many of the fish are caught before they have time to go up into the rivers to spawn. Longline fishing has proven particularly harmful to stocks of wild salmon, because fish that are too young also end up in the haul.
There are more selective fishing methods available, however, and good arguments exist for favouring these rather than longline fishing. Traditionally, fishing has been of particular importance, and still is, for those living alongside rivers in the north. This being the case, restrictions on fishing at sea and, at the same time, measures aimed at reviving and tending stocks of wild salmon are important objectives if the living conditions, local culture and traditional livelihoods of those who live in the north are to be preserved.
The Commission has frequently emphasised the importance of preserving wild salmon, and, furthermore, the statements that it has issued have aimed at preservation of stocks and safeguarding their living conditions. The rules for the protection of salmon within the common fisheries policy aim at limiting fishing pressure on the stock. The Commission is committed to reduce fishing mortality for all stocks which corresponds to the maximum sustainable yield by Technical measures such as fishery closure periods and the efficient control system in place will all contribute to the protection of salmon stocks in the Baltic Sea.
It is believed that such a reduction combined with the efficient control of fisheries implemented by Member States will help to achieve the maximum sustainable yield MSY target. Given the great importance of these health claims for consumers, does the Commission not consider it essential to make them widely known and to comment on them, rather than simply publishing this information in the Official Journal?
An Integrative Management View for Companies and Networks
The Commission Regulation establishing a list of permitted health claims that received a positive opinion in the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health will be published in the Official Journal following its adoption by the Commission, provided that no objection is raised during scrutiny by the Parliament and the Council. The Commission agrees that it is desirable for this list to be more readily available to all stakeholders, including consumers, and for it to be accompanied by appropriate information to aid use and compliance.
This Union Register, which will be updated once the list of permitted health claims is adopted, contains the wording of the claim, the conditions for its use, any restrictions that might apply and references to the scientific opinions of the European Food Safety Authority EFSA. Oggetto: Possibili finanziamenti per associazioni che si occupano della promozione umana e sociale dei disabili mentali. I due edifici ospitano, inoltre, laboratori artigianali, spazi per il tempo libero, per la dramma terapia e le arti figurative.
Presso le due strutture prestano assistenza medici, educatori specializzati, giovani in servizio sociale, volontari ed artigiani. Quali finanziamenti a livello comunitario o nazionale sono disponibili per le associazioni ONLUS che si occupano della promozione umana e sociale dei disabili mentali;. It was founded by parents, teachers and volunteers with the aim of managing initiatives to encourage the personal development and social integration of people with mental disabilities and the independence of their families. The Association is registered in the Regional Register of Voluntary Associations and its work is inspired by therapeutic pedagogy and social therapy with an anthroposophic orientation.
The two buildings accommodate craft workshops, leisure facilities and spaces for drama therapy and visual arts. The second centre, Casa Maria Grazia, in operation since , is a family home which takes in six mentally disabled young people during the day. In both places, doctors, specialist teachers, young people doing social work, volunteers and craftspeople offer their support.
What EU or national funds are available for ONLUS associations which deal with humanitarian and social assistance to the mentally disabled? Are there other voluntary associations in Member States with similar aims to the abovementioned one? As detailed in the European Disability Strategy , the Commission carries out certain policies and actions at European level and supports national efforts to improve the situation of people with disabilities, including those with mental disabilities. However, the main competence in many fields directly relevant to the everyday life of disabled people lies with national or local authorities.
However, such associations could qualify for support from the European Structural Funds, in particular the European Social Fund ESF , to be obtained via participation in specific Calls for Proposals managed nationally, in this case by the responsible Italian authorities. The ESF can support capacity building and specific actions undertaken by NGOs, including those working on disability issues. Funding opportunities are provided within the framework of Operational Programmes at national and regional level. It would seem that the outstanding payments are for the compulsory purchase of land for works, put out to tender, on the high-speed rail network and that the money is, for the most part, owed to private individuals.
Therefore the purchase of land by a public administration falls outside the scope of the directive. Catalonia is classified as a NUTS 2 region despite the fact that the size of its population far surpasses the figures given for that level and clearly places it in the NUTS 1 bracket. Given that, under the first paragraph of the above article, existing administrative units constitute the first criterion used to classify territorial units,. The population thresholds to be taken into account are specified in the same article. The principles and conditions of the NUTS classification were established by a lengthy consultation procedure with national stakeholders and were approved by the European Parliament and the Council.
The specifications of the regulation, including the population thresholds, are considered to be straightforward and have proven their worth in the past. Thus, the Commission does not plan revising the principles and conditions of the NUTS classification. Spain has not informed the Commission of changes in its administrative level that might affect the NUTS classification, thus there is no revision of the classification of Spanish NUTS regions foreseen. The establishment of stable, non-administrative regional levels for the NUTS classification provides the means for a significantly improved comparability of EU regional statistics.
The Commission approves the necessity of that concept and does not plan to abandon it. Tali opere sono state eseguite attraverso un documento rilasciato dal Ministero dell'ambiente in data 5. Quali azioni intende intraprendere in caso di non corretta applicazione delle citate direttive?

That decision required the competent authorities to present a new EIA within three months, which was not done. That authorisation has been referred to the Administrative Court of the Veneto region by the Committee for the Reduction of the Environmental Impact of Treviso Airport, which is an association consisting of residents of the area surrounding the airport, and by Italia Nostra, a national association recognised by the Ministry of the Environment.
What action will it take if it feels that those directives have not been correctly applied? The Commission is currently investigating the matter referred to by the Honourable Member. A supplementary answer will be provided to him in due course. This ongoing investigation concerns the potential breach of the EIA Directive in relation to projects for the extension of several Italian airports, including the modifications to the Treviso airport referred to by the Honourable Member. The Commission will take the appropriate action should evidence of a breach of the EIA Directive emerge.
Betreft: Kimberlyproces — Verantwoordelijke instelling. De Kimberlyprocescertificering KPCS is een internationale overeenkomst waarmee de handel in ruwe diamant beperkt wordt tot landen die aan bepaalde criteria voldoen. In nam de impasse in het KP over de status van de diamantrijke Zimbabwaanse regio Marange een prominente plaats in en kreeg deze een bijzonder politieke dimensie, niet alleen voor Zimbabwe, maar ook voor de ruimere regio. De EU is erin geslaagd een prominente rol te spelen bij het vinden van een uitweg uit deze impasse, die het KP dreigde te ondermijnen.
The Kimberly Process Certification Scheme KPCS is an international agreement that limits the trade in rough diamonds to countries meeting certain criteria. Additionally, it chaired the Committee for Implementation of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme for the International Trade in Rough Diamonds, which is made up of representatives of the Member States and oversees the implementation of the process at EU level.
During , the impasse in the KP regarding the status of the diamond-rich Marange region of Zimbabwe took on particular prominence, and a particularly political dimension not only for Zimbabwe but for the wider region. The EU was able to play a prominent role in finding a way for the KP to move forward from this impasse that had threatened to derail it. In line with the approach described above, the EU's initiative was developed and led by the Commission, but in close coordination with the EEAS who were able to assist not only with ensuring the coherence of this approach with other aspects of EU external action, but also with the diplomatic outreach to all KP participants.
Betreft: Erkenning van doktersvoorschriften uit een andere lidstaat. Desalniettemin blijven er nog tal van onduidelijkheden bestaan en stuiten Europese burgers vaak op moeilijkheden wanneer ze in het buitenland bij de apotheker geneesmiddelen willen afhalen met een doktersvoorschrift uit eigen land.
Innovation and Ontologies | SpringerLink
Om na te gaan hoe de erkenning van grensoverschrijdende doktersvoorschriften verbeterd kan worden, heeft de Europese Commissie een consultatieronde gehouden bij de belangrijkste stakeholders. Daarna zal de Commissie de maatregelen beginnen uit te werken. Nevertheless, there is still a lack of clarity on many points in this regard and European citizens often encounter difficulties abroad when they go to a pharmacist to pick up medicinal products using a prescription from their home country.
The European Commission has held a round of consultations with important stakeholders to identify ways of improving the situation with regard to the recognition of cross-border prescriptions. Prior to this date, the Commission plans to publish on the Health and Consumers website all contributions it has received to the web-based public consultation, as well as a report analysing the replies.
The Commission will subsequently start the drafting of the measures. Autukhovich will be moved to a closed prison. This is punishment for an alleged breach of prison rules. The move was requested by the prison administration. Unofficially, the reason is that neither Statkevitch nor Autukhovich were willing to sign a request for a pardon from President Lukashenko. The wave of repressions carried out by the Belarusian authorities against representatives of the opposition and political prisoners is only increasing. Does the Commission therefore intend to intervene in the matter of the sentences of Autukhovich and Statkevitch and take a firm stand against the actions of the Belarusian authorities?
Belarusian opposition activists are convinced that Sannikov signed the letter because he had been subjected to torture. It is possible that torture was the reason he was held in complete isolation for three months without even access to a lawyer. Khalip said that her husband had led her to understand that while still in prison in Mogilev he had been threatened that she and their four-year-old son would be killed.
Note that this is not the first report of torture and brutal treatment in Belarusian prisons. He told journalists that his hands had been handcuffed and he had been deprived of sleep, and that he had been ordered to stand naked with his legs apart and his hands raised. Mikhalevich was also denied contact with a lawyer.
Is the Commission aware of the torture practices used by the Lukashenko regime against political prisoners, and does it intend to intervene in the case of Andrei Sannikov and other Belarusian political prisoners? The EU is deeply concerned by the reports of torture, mistreatment and inhumane prison conditions of political prisoners in Belarus, including Andrei Sannikaw, Mikalay Autokovich, Mikalay Statkevich, Dzmitry Bandarenka and Dzmitry Dashkevich. They are also concerned by the reports of denied access to their lawyers and family members.
The EU has repeatedly called on the Belarusian authorities to release and rehabilitate all political prisoners. It has also, through public statements and by other means, exhorted the authorities of Belarus to take all necessary legislative, administrative, judicial and other measures to ensure the full respect of its international legal obligations with regard to the absolute prohibition of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
The EU has implemented a range of restrictive measures against those responsible for this ongoing repression. Can the Commission indicate what measures have been agreed to or implemented in order to maintain or re-establish the conservation status of the special protection areas for birds in the area of the Segarra-Garrigues canal?
What total costs have been, or will be, incurred in the application of the aforementioned measures? The Commission was asked whether it was logical to use Community funds for an economic project that had been considerably cut back on environmental grounds. It also stated that it had not granted any funding since It is important to note that this major project is not directly related to the irrigation project mentioned by the Honourable Member. As the ERDF and the Cohesion Fund are managed under shared responsibility, the Commission invites the Honourable member to request any further information to the responsible managing authority:.
Det nytter ikke noget at uddanne de unge til jobs, der ikke udbydes. Millions of young people have lost touch with the labour market and are at risk of being left behind. There is reason to believe that there is a direct link between the way the educational system is structured and the extent of youth unemployment. In those few countries which have introduced work-linked training, which combines broad-based, theoretical learning at school in an effective manner with properly regulated longer-term work experience in a company, youth unemployment is noticeably lower than elsewhere.
There is no point in training young people to do jobs which are not available. The needs of business and the educational structure must therefore be closely interlinked. This must obviously occur within a framework which ensures the quality of work experience placements in companies, so as to ensure that the focus continues to be on the education and training of young people. What can the Commission do to extend the positive experiences of a work-linked training system to more Member States?
In their national EU reform programmes a number of Member States have already set targets with a view to making education systems more relevant to the needs of the labour market, e. How can the Commission support the efforts of these Member States? There are a number of initial expenses associated with developing and transforming an education system. What is the position of the Commission on earmarking ESF funds to cover the initial expenses of those Member States wishing to develop their education systems so as to make greater use of work-linked training?
In the future, those who have received vocational training will constitute the core labour resource in the private sector. Does the Commission have any plans to implement initiatives to ensure that more young people receive vocational training? In the Commission launched the Youth Opportunities Initiative, focusing on the challenges facing young people on the labour market. Adapting education and training systems to labour market needs is a core priority and led to 16 Country Specific Recommendations in Joint actions teams involving national and Commission officials will identify opportunities for redirecting unallocated structural funds in these countries, including for apprenticeships and training under the Lifelong Learning Programme.
Nel dicembre , Human Rights Watch ha pubblicato una relazione sull'agghiacciante fenomeno delle spose bambine nello Yemen. Tra questi si annoverano la Convenzione sui diritti del fanciullo e la Convenzione sull'eliminazione di ogni forma di discriminazione nei confronti della donna.
In caso affermativo, con quali risultati? In caso negativo, sarebbe disposta a contattare le ONG attive in questo campo? La condizione delle donne yemenite in generale e dei matrimoni infantili in particolare preoccupa seriamente l'Unione europea. Le questioni relative ai diritti umani sono uno dei settori che richiedono urgentemente l'attenzione del governo.
At present Yemen has no minimum age for marriage. Boys and girls can be married at any age, but in practice it is girls who are most often married young. Among the consequences of child marriage is that of girls having to cut short their education, meaning they have little chance of finding gainful employment and little control over their reproductive health. Many parliamentary figures in Yemen agree that a ban on child marriage is fundamental to safeguarding the rights of young girls.
In , a majority of parliamentarians voted to set the minimum age for marriage at 17, but the conservative opposition used a parliamentary procedure to stall the draft law indefinitely. Yemen is party to a number of international treaties and conventions that prohibit child marriage and commit states parties to take measures to eliminate the practice.
