    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.

    Abortion Rights in Germany – A country where abortion is allowed but not decriminalised.

    Abortion Rights in Germany – A country where abortion is allowed but not decriminalised.

    In this episode, we take apart the legislative situation on abortion in Germany. While abortion is allowed it is not decriminalised. In our discussion with Raphaela Rains from the TekoMaf, a women‘s rights section of Amnesty International in Germany, we speak about the rather paternal abortion rules that exist in Germany. After all, Article 2018 that regulates abortion can be found in the German Criminal Code. ‚What is it doing there and what does it exactly say?‘ Listen to answers to this and other burning questions such as ‚What kind of process do women undergo when seeking abortion in Germany and how does it affect them?‘ Will the recent change in government have any influence in liberating abortion in Germany?‘ in our podcast.

    Poland’s state of emergency: A Conversation with Fundacja Ocalenie about the humanitarian crisis on the Polish/Belarusian border.

    Poland’s state of emergency: A Conversation with Fundacja Ocalenie about the humanitarian crisis on the Polish/Belarusian border.

    In late 2021, as winter approached, a new crisis unfolded at the Polish/Belarusian border. Large groups of migrants were trapped between the two countries in horrendous conditions with little food or water. It has been reported by Amnesty International that Polish forces have engaged in illegal pushbacks of migrants on the border, thereby violating the principle of non-refoulement under public international law. The Polish government has imposed a state of emergency on the Belarusian border, severely restricting media, and humanitarian access to the border zone.

    In this episode, we discuss the continuing situation on the Polish/Belarusian border with Kalina Czwarnóg of Fundacja Ocalenie, as well as the nature of the right to asylum, the response of the European Union, and most importantly, what we can do to help the situation.
