    Illegal Migrant Pushbacks in Lithuania – The state of Lithuanian law and why it even legalises deportation.

    In our interview with Sergej Stoma from the Diversity Development Group in Lithuania, we explore the reasons behind illegal migrant pushbacks and deportation at the Lithuanian border, especially to Belarus. What is the judiciary behind this and how did it come about? In this first episode, we seek to understand the dynamics of the situation better and reflect on the European Court of Justice‘s evaluation of it. In our second episode (to be published next week) we update on recent judiciary happenings, more specifically court decisions, and evaluate what this may mean for migrants entering Lithuania in the future.

    The New EU Conditionality Mechanism – The long-awaited solution to rule of law breaches in Europe?

    The New EU Conditionality Mechanism – The long-awaited solution to rule of law breaches in Europe?

    Together with Member of the European Parliament Niklas Nienaß we are exploring the European Union’s recently adopted and by the European Court of Justice newly validated conditionality mechanism on the rule of law. How does it work? What are the underlining power plays between European Institutions from the mechanism‘s initial proposal, over adoption and validation to implementation? How effective will it be? Ultimately, what we all want to know: Does it represent a solution to all current and future rule of law breaches in the EU, such as currently in Hungary and Poland?

    Listen in to get an insight into above questions.

    24-Hour Care Worker in Austria – A conversation on how 24-hour care workers need a firm legislative framework that protects their worker right

    24-Hour Care Worker in Austria – A conversation on how 24-hour care workers need a firm legislative framework that protects their worker right

    Welcome to the second epsiode of our podcast series on care worker rights in Europe. In this second episode we speak about the rights of care and health workers in Austria. We are exploring the reasons behind why 60.000 24-hour care workers are working in unfair, unsafe and precarious working conditions in Austria. Further, these live-in care workers are to 98% migrants and 92% women which gives the topic of unfair working conditions an extra human rights issue. We speak to Teresa Hatzel from Amnesty Austria to explore the reasons behind and solutions to the human rights dangerous situation.

    Muzzled and Unheard – The Precarious Situation of Care Workers in Italy

    Muzzled and Unheard – The Precarious Situation of Care Workers in Italy

    Welcome to our first episode of our podcast series on care worker rights in Europe. In this episode we speak about the rights of care and health workers in Italy. In one of the countries with the oldest population in the world, working conditions in care homes are highly precarious and care work does not receive the appropriate recognition. COVID-19 has not only raised attention to the issue but also exacerbated working conditions for many care and health workers. Listen to our podcast with Debora Del Pistoia from Amnesty Italy to find out what Amnesty Italy is asking to change in order to create a sustainable care system for both patients and workers.

    Abortion Rights in Slovakia - The 19th Attempt to Rollback & Central Societal Issues

    Abortion Rights in Slovakia - The 19th Attempt to Rollback & Central Societal Issues

    Welcome to the fourth and final episode of Abortion Rights in Europe. Today, we will be shedding light on the situation in Slovakia. The Slovakian government has frequently engaged in attempts to rollback abortion rights, which has been rejected each time only by a narrow majority in Parliament. This November, there was a 19th attempt to pass a draconian abortion bill which would have dangerous and discriminatory effects for all sexual and reproductive rights in Slovakia.

    In our conversation with Daniela Muzikova, the Social Media Coordinator of Amnesty Slovakia, we will discuss the current legislative framework in Slovakia that addresses accesses to abortion, the recent attempts to rollback this framework and how these restrictions would ultimately change the lives of all women in Slovakia.
