Human dignity, equality, and solidarity are core European values and form the cornerstones of the European Project.
We celebrate diversity and want to make Europe a safe place for everyone. We believe in a fair and just society where everyone is treated equally and enjoys the same rights, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation. Human rights are at the core of our European values – and the ultimate yardstick for minority protection and migration policies.
We reject any undermining of any liberty or fundamental rights that we see arise from the current nationalistic, xenophobic and reactionary movements that are threatening the open and democratic quality of our society.
We push for more rights and equality for all women and the LGBTI community, fighting against discrimination and violence and working towards creating a world that is inclusive and safe for all. Every person should have the right to live freely according to their gender identity and gender expression, and the right to self-determination and bodily autonomy. We are gaining more women's rights than before, but we are also experiencing backlash, hate and violence across the world. We fight to ensure equal pay for equally valuable work, address gender-based violence, and ensure access to reproductive health care and abortion.
We promote a fair and humane approach to migration, political asylum, reception and integration policies. We defend the rights of asylum seekers and migrants and push the European Union to define common policies and aid in their implementation. We work to ensure safe and legal access, a more ambitious resettlement and relocation scheme, support mechanisms and funds to relocate refugees, and address the root causes of migration by changing trade and development policies that finance authoritarian regimes. We also fight the inhumane treatment to which migrants are subjected at all external borders of the Union.
We are also committed to ensuring digital rights as new emerging technologies shape our society. We fight to regulate Artificial Intelligence and other technologies and ensure that human rights are respected. We push to ban those that violate these rights, such as invasive surveillance, facial recognition, and tools that claim to detect gender, religion, or propensity to conduct crime. We also work to ensure transparency and accountability so that individuals are not subjected to automated decision making systems without clear rules.
