WEBINAR: Covid-19 and the management of ‘superspreaders’: Lesson learnt from Ischgl

While researchers are still trying to learn more about the propagation of Covid19, evidence suggests that so-called superspreader-locations such as Ischgl, Mulhouse and co. have a strong impact on the spread of the virus. According to current findings, around 11.000 EU citizens were directly infected in the ski-resort of Ischgl. 27 people died. From the ski-resort, the virus spread to countless EU-countries, thus accelerating the propagation of the coronavirus... How did this happen? And how can such a scenario be prevented in the future?

 

In the first panel, we will try, together with investigative journalists and researchers, to understand how Ischgl could turn into a „ground zero“ of the spread of the coronavirus in Europe. A second panel of representatives of the European Commission and the ECCD as well as national experts will discuss and assess the measures and mechanisms that exist at EU-level to contain the spread of cross-border threats and identify shortcomings.

WEBINAR: Catch me if you can - the European Arrest Warrant under scrutiny

The aim of the event is to analyse existing problems of the European Arrest Warrant arising from its application or its design, such as abusive use of the mechanism by some Member States, application of the double criminality requirement or listing of categories with automatic recognition. Latest developments like the Brexit or the on-going Article 7 procedures against two Member States could create additional challenges to the effective functioning of the mechanism. Finally, the panellist shall discuss current ideas for a reform of the European Arrest Warrant and possible ways forward.

WEBINAR: How can competition rules support the Green Deal ?” How can competition rules support the Green Deal ?

How can competition rules support the Green Deal? In the context of the reform of the competition rules announced by 2023 and the ambitious objectives defined with the Green Deal, this webinar will be an opportunity to discuss how competition rules can support the green transition of our economy and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. This webinar follows the European Parliament annual report on competition policy for which Stéphanie Yon-Courtin was Rapporteur and the proposals put forward. Vice-President Margrethe Vestager will recall the importance of the Green Deal within her portfolio and will present the ongoing and upcoming work of the European Commission on the area.  This open discussion will follow on from the debates initiated following the response to the Covid-19 crisis and will provide an opportunity to consider how best to take into account sustainability issues in competition rules, whether in terms of State aid, horizontal cooperation agreements, or mergers and acquisitions.
