European Conference of Presidents of Parliament

On 15 – 16 September 2016 in Strasbourg, President of the Baltic Assembly Jānis Vucāns participated in the European Conference of Presidents of Parliament. The Conference dealt with three major topical issues: 1) Migration and refugee crisis in Europe – role and responsibilities of parliaments; 2) National parliaments and the Council of Europe – together promoting democracy, human rights and the rule of law; 3) Mobilisation of parliaments against hate for inclusive and non-racist societies.
