Reaching groups of young people that are excluded, isolated, discriminated, building a tolerant and healthy divers community is always a hard, challenging and difficult task. Streets have a huge potential in terms of informing, making awareness, including and building a community therefore specific methods designed for street work are highly recommended in this field and specially in times when they are not so widely applied.

Where should the limits to freedom of speech be set?

Editor's note: New debates on the Debating Europe! Now the topic is.. freedom of speech.

charliee.jpg

It’s very easy to say there should be ‘no limits’ to freedom of speech. However, most people would agree it should be illegal to publish a person’s address along with instructions on the best ways to rough them up. Almost all countries have laws against harassment, or incitement to commit crimes, as well as restrictions on libel or slanderous speech.

Can social media help engage young people in politics?

Editor's note: Debating Europe start important debates on social media and young people engagement in politics. Follow the @Eunetwork!

social-media-marketing-agency.jpg

32% of Europeans use the internet to follow politics. However, that number is even higher for young people, and over 40% of Europeans aged 15-24 say they have expressed their views on public issues via social media in the past two years versus only 25% of 45-54 year olds. And, despite declining voter participation, a wave of so-called “populist parties” are challenging mainstream traditional political parties in many European countries, often making effective use of social media in order to do so.

Debating Europe are starting new round of the discussions about European sensitive issues. Today's topic: Europe and terrorism. After the September 11th attacks, European support for the “War on Terror” was high. Large majorities in Britain, France and Germany initially supported the US-led War on Terror, and it was not until the 2003 invasion of Iraq that that support began to evaporate. Even in the post-Bush era, a 2012 German Marshall Fund poll found that 71% of EU respondents approved of US President Obama’s efforts to fight international terrorism.

Editor's note: Sintija Bernava has a long-standing professional experience working for the Parliament of Latvia (Saeima) and the Government of Latvia, now chairman of the NGO "DONUM ANIMUS" . Sintija points out important priorities of the Latvian EU Presidency in the 2015. With this publication we also would like to start debates and welcome different opinions on the topic. 

riga.jpg

Latvia is a member of the EU since 2004 and from January 1, 2015, it will become the presiding country of the Council of the European Union (hereinafter — the EU), taking over the lead from Italy, which held the Presidency of the Council for the second half of 2014. Then following Latvia the Presidency will be taken over by Luxembourg in the second half of 2015.. The so-called Trio Presidency of the EU Council has been introduced since 2009, with the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty. Practically the Trio Presidency means that each Presidency is being implemented jointly by three Member States, each assuming the presiding role after the other. Each Trio country consecutively holds the Presidency for six months, based on a joint work program established for that Trio.

Фотография выше – теперь реликвия. В ночь с 11 на 12 декабря 2014 года группа молодых людей закрасила чёрной краской всемирно известные граффити берлинского уличного художника BLU. Нет, это сделали не городские власти, и даже не строительная компания, планирующая застроить  соседний участок. Это сделали – по желанию самого художника – его друзья. Почему? Пожалуй, стоит начать со скучных фактов.

Человек возмущался тому как плохо работают ФМС и паспортные столы, минздрав и многое другое... я попросила только не винить в этих проблемах "Весну" потому что это слишком драгоценное и важное для крымчан и истории событие...
