Committee on Constitutional Affairs (AFCO):

The question of the European community. Recently the European ideology has been endangered, with many governments within the European Union drifting away from its initialcollective idea and Euroscepticism being on the rise. Populist and politically extremist parties pose a growing threat to the European community by displaying a hostile attitude towards the shared European values. How can the European Union counter these developments, which could possibly be traced back to an inadequate representation of EU citizens by mainstream parties and the dissatisfaction about the functionality of EU institutions? How should the EU be reformed to foster the European spirit and community and face contemporary political and societal changes?

Committee on Foreign Affairs (AFET)

The question of promoting democratic values outside of the EU. The European Union is devoted to supporting and promoting democracy and human rights in all its external relations, in conformity with its founding principles of liberty, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law. In times of political instability and grave human rights violations in many regions bordering the political and territorial sphere of influence of the EU, its member states are confronted with their global responsibilities. How can the European Union assist countries in Eastern Africa in fostering political stability based on fundamental principles as liberty, peace, democracy and human dignity?

Committee on Women´s Rights and Gender equality (FEMM):

The question of the social role and position of women. Even in times of great social prosperity and alleged equality, the question of the social role of women is still far from resolved. Social repression, gender roles and stereotypes are still dominating wide parts of the European society and inhibiting actual social equality of both sexes. Which steps can be taken by the European Parliament in order to foster these societal changes and stipulate the equalrole of women in all EU member states? What can the European Union do in order to motivate EU citizens to lay aside obsolete gender stereotypes and adapt a more modern and adequate perception of the female role in our society?

Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE):

The question of countering the growing threat of terrorism in the EU. Nearly all European Nations have been endangered by terroristic attacks in recent years, which have been menacing the core values of our democratic system: Liberty and safety. With many of these attacks being inspired by religious fanaticism, scepticism and xenophobia pose a growing threat to the cultural diversity of the European society. Which measures can be the taken by the EU to ensure safety for all its citizens as well as combat the growing threat of terrorism? How can the EU thereby stipulate the importance of its cultural diversity and oppose the increasing xenophobia among its member states and ultimately its citizens?

Committee on Foreign Affairs – subcommittee on Security and Defence (AFET/SEDE):

The question of nuclear disarmament. In times of rising nuclear armament, menacing to destabilize the fragile global peace, the role of the EU as leading peace negotiator has become increasingly integral to ensure peaceful cooperation of not only EU member states. How can the EU foster nuclear disarmament both of its member states and international superpowers while also supporting global initiatives to restrict the production, possession and utilisation of nuclear weapons? How can the EU assert its global significance as pioneer of a more peaceful future while inspiring other nations to follow its example?

Committee on Development, Culture and Education (DEVE/CULT):

The question of equal development throughout the European Union. Despite all attempts of ensuring equality among all European nations, the EU is continuously confronted with *its* numerous social, economic, and cultural differences and the gap between the latter seems to be increasingly dilating. The idea of a “European Union of multiple speeds” has gained popularity among politicians, menacing the European ideal of community. Especially equal educational opportunities are often seen as key to equal development among European nations. Should the European Union incite the standardisation of school systems and curricula of all member countries to enable similar opportunities for all students and hence harmonise development progress among its member states? Which other policies can the EU use to ensure equal development of all its member states and avoid substantial differences in economic and social opportunities?

Committee on Industry, Research, Energy , Employment and Social Affairs (ITRE/EMPL):

The question of innovation, industrial automation, and digitalisation. In times of increasing technological developments, the necessity of innovation has become an essential component of industrialised economic systems to increase international competitiveness and foster economic growth. Innovation offers numerous advantages to society; simultaneously, digitalisation and automation pose a threat to the primary and secondary sector of our economy. Especially for the younger generation this has led to a substantial increase in unemployment figures. Which measures can be taken by the European Union to expand its role in the global market of innovation and technological breakthrough and how can it encourage the young generation to become successful entrepreneurs and stimulate innovation on the European continent? How can this strive for technological development be adapted to contemporary economic systems and changing demands on the labour market?
