The European Union is a family of citizens who are fighting to realize nationally and internationally the social cohesion. It is a Europe capable to answer all the challenges and to respect the national and regional identity, same as the cultural inheritance of its citizens. The European citizen should not be separately seen, but should be seen in the social, cultural and ecologic context being influenced by its national identity. The common European identity can only amplify or develop the national essence.
The goal of the European Union is to promote and develop the democracy, to modernize the economic and social structures and to fight against social exclusion and poverty. The Europe is an economic and political entity, same as social and reach of cultural diversity. All other the continent, the social protection had become a part from our identity.
The social rights are fundamental ones and had become integral to the European citizenship. The Union gives to all its citizens the opportunity to benefit from solidarity, their rights recognition. This thing implies a social harmonization which makes possible the coordination of salary policy and establishment of collective agreement recognized in all the Union. For all these we need a Europe that protects the public services and which is keeping its competence.
The European Union value is to respect and appreciate all its citizens. It is consolidating the action plans on social inclusion and reducing the poverty. These plans are having common index of realization, therefore allowing all citizens to live in dignity.
The European Union should be a union based on solidarity and freedom. It should adopt a common system of economic migration and a sure and correct system of asylum. The European Union should promote the needs and the rights of the youth. So that the action plans should give strength to the Europe’s youth.
Still, one of the added values of the European Union is combating racism and intolerance, a value that lies in providing a platform for raising political awareness among participating States, even if this means repeating a message already familiar from other international forums. At the same time, the European institutions of this field are making effort to enhance their role in the area of racism and intolerance, and specifically paying attention to Roma people. Roma are often the most marginalized of all ethnic groups in Europe. They are facing persistent discrimination, prejudice, racism, and social rejection that may be said to have its own characteristics.
The economic and political changes at the turn of the 1990s, moreover, generally exacerbated the vulnerability of Roma. Several conflicts have led to challenges such as refugee and migration questions among Roma and Sinti communities. Because of the extremely precarious situation of Roma, special attention should be given to them by as many international actors as possible in order to keep their situation firmly on the international agenda and to remind states of the necessity to take actions at their national level.
Me, as a member of the youth group, I want a Europe of tolerance and social inclusion. I want a Europe built on fundamental values: peace, freedom, dialogue, equality, solidarity and respect for human rights. I want a Europe which is based on the equality principle of the member states. Therefore, in the center of this vision is situated a responsible Europe for its citizens.
