We want Europe to be a promoter of peace and a reliable global partner. For the security of our citizens.
We want to make Europe more secure, but not at the expense of freedom and fundamental rights.
Travel bans and racial or religious profiling do not lead to higher security but raise suspicion of entire communities. We believe that inclusion and not discrimination is the right way to go.
We believe that a lot of work must be done to end the vicious circle of violence and poverty that is found in many conflict zones around the world. We are convinced that pure military solutions lead to even greater suffering and create a power vacuum, making it easier for terrorist groups to gain ground and recruit the next generation of fighters.
The European Union must speak out and condemn any acts of war crimes, no matter which party is responsible.
Greens strongly believe in the merit of non-violent conflict resolution, ranging from diplomatic warnings to targeted sanctions, to prevent the financing of terror and the delivery of weapons into war zones.
The European Union aims to be a guarantor of peace and stability, not only on the continent but also in other world regions. We want to see an outward-looking Europe that promotes its values of cooperation and its commitment to non-military solutions. This is the best way to make the European Union a reliable and trustworthy partner on the global stage and a mediating power in international diplomacy, while keeping European citizens safe and secure.
Cooperation and coordination between security agencies, authorities and the police on a European level is indispensable for combatting criminal activities like money laundering, illegal trade of drugs, arms and wildlife, human trafficking and forced prostitution. We also support the establishment of European agencies with the capacity to effectively stop criminal activities within Europe’s external borders.
