European Parliament

Europe is the proof that peace can be learnt. That after years of the most brutal wars, another way of living is possible. The European Parliament is a truly European place where we can achieve consensus across national and party divisions. Our work in Parliament and our history in Europe give many people hope, wherever they may be in the world. 

In my view, we must live up to the hopes placed in us every day. I use my work in Parliament as a platform, as a way of urging Europe to support and protect people around the world who are campaigning for peace and human rights.

I chose my committees and delegations accordingly. I am chair of the Delegation for relations with the Arab Peninsula and vice-chair of the Subcommittee on Human Rights (DROI). I am also a member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs (AFET) and the Subcommittee on Security and Defence Policy (SEDE).

“Europe is the proof that we can learn to live together Peace lernen kann.“

Here you will find the many contributions, speeches, resolutions and reports I am working on in Parliament:
