EU Election Outcome Is Concerning for Human Rights

La Strada International is deeply concerned about the outcomes of the recent EU elections. The rise of populist and nationalist parties in several EU member states is alarming. Such parties often promote xenophobic and anti-democratic and anti-migration rhetoric and threaten the respect for human rights within the EU. We hoped to see more support for labour and victims’ rights, women’s rights and access to justice. See more about this in our blog or manifesto.

The outcome of the elections highlights once more the need for an organised and strong CSOspace to demand human rights based EU policies.
