The latest developments in Afghanistan have, once again, urged another global discussion on security and defence. And while most will automatically think of NATO on this topic, we can't go on without asking - what about the EU? What about European defence? In our latest podcast episode, Georgina Wright sat down for a talk with MEP Arnaud Danjean, and Claudia Major from the German Institute for International and Security Affairs. The three of them raised several important questions during their discussion - where and how should Europe stand in matters of defence?

    Farm to Fork: The future of EU agriculture

    28:17

    In this week's episode we are discussing the impact of the Farm to Fork Strategy. The European Commission proposed Farm to Fork and it is expected to set certain targets, including cutting pesticide use in half and reducing the use of mineral fertilisers by 20 percent.  But - what will be the impact of these measures both on farmers and on consumers? Our host Chris Burns looked for the answer to this question with a Finnish farmer, Susanna Suonio, Herbert Dorfmann MEP and Prof. Dr. Christian Henning, who has done an actual study on the impact of the Farm to Fork Strategy.

    The Future of EU-US Relations

    18:07

    In this week's episode, we are bringing you a talk about the future of EU-US relations.  In light of the recent events in Afghanistan, but also in light of the AUKUS deal, the alliance between the USA, the UK and Australia, which involved a submarine deal worth billions that replaced a French deal on submarines, it's obvious that relations between Europe and the United States have taken a hit.  Where might all this take us and what should we expect? Our host Chris Burns and MEP Radosław Sikorski engaged in an interesting discussion on the subject.  If you have a topic that you would like to hear discussed in this podcast, please get in touch via social media.

    Threats to Democracy: Spyware and Disinformation

    22:37

    Breast cancer: Preventable, treatable, beatable.

    30:47

    Female breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer. Over 355.000 women in the EU's 27 countries were estimated to be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020. It amounts to 13,3 percent of all cancer diagnoses.  In this podcast, you're going to hear from three women who are each playing a different but important role in the fight against breast cancer. Dr. Isabel Rubio is the Head of Breast Surgical Oncology at Clinica Universidad de Navarra in Madrid, Spain. She has a real insight into what's going on in hospitals right now.  Barbara Wilson is a highly experienced senior HR professional and herself a breast cancer survivor. She set up an organisation in the UK called Working With Cancer, which is all about helping employees and employers deal with the issues that cancer raises in the workplace, providing all sides with education and support.  And Deirdre Clune, a prominent Irish Member of the European Parliament who sits with the EPP Group. She's a leading figure in the Parliament's Special Committee on Beating Cancer. In this podcast, we're talking about screening and early detection, the effect COVID-19 has had on fighting cancer and what the EU's role is in all of it.

    What's next for the EU? Enlargement - where does Europe end?

    21:35

    Enlargement is often considered one of the EU's most powerful policy tools. But is it the right time for the EU to welcome new Member States? And what do citizens think about it? Are we ready? Especially given the fact that the EU is still recovering from several crises it has encountered over the past decade. In the latest episode of the EPP Group's podcast series 'What's next for the EU?', Georgina Wright discusses these exact questions with Karlo Ressler MEP, a Croatian politician, former adviser and Member of the European Parliament since 2019, and Joanna Hosa, Deputy Director of the Wider Europe Programme at the European Council on Foreign Relations.

    The online space: empowering or silencing women?

    48:57

    Hate speech online against women is a growing problem, which perpetuates and exacerbates gender inequality. In fact, 1 in 10 women in Europe have experienced some kind of cyber violence since the age of 15.  And many of those who suffered it changed their habits in the online space by: censoring themselves online, opting out of participation and  limiting their engagement in our societies.  On this EPP Group podcast episode, Karen Coleman delves deeper into this problem to better understand: What is it? What causes it? What effect does it have on us? What can social networks & EU legislation do to eradicate hate speech online against women?  She talks to - Roberta Metsola MEP, Sirpa Pietikäinen MEP, Councillor Yemi Adenuga, Founder of Sheroes Global, Asha Allen, Policy and Campaigns Officer at the European Women’s Lobby, Professor Sara De Vido, Law Professor at the University of Venice, expert on Legal Frameworks related to Violence Against Women, and Marisa Jiménez Martín, Director of Public Policy and Deputy Head of EU Affairs, Facebook - to answer these questions and give some solutions.

    AI and defence: Setting the rules of engagement

    24:35

    Defence research has laid the groundwork for some of our greatest technological leaps – including the modern Internet. However, in the past ten years, with the advent of deep-learning techniques, massive processing power, huge databases and near-real time information, AI has started to have profound implications for the defence world.  Yet according to the European Defence Agency, few European Member States have a dedicated AI strategy for defence, instead just referencing defence in their national AI strategies. This means that joined-up thinking on this issue across the EU is challenging. Member States should work together to identify defence applications where AI can be truly helpful, where it might have incremental improvements and where we should be wary of using it. Jennifer Baker talks to MEP Riho Terras along with Estonian IT visionary Taavi Kotka, and Fabrice Pothier from Rasmussen Global.
