The Guardian publikuje opinię Filipa Kaczmarka

UE musi objąć swoją rolę jako światowego lidera, czytamy w tytule artykułu zwracającego uwagę na brak problematyki globalnej w aktualnej kampanii wyborczej do Parlamentu Europejskiego.
W środę, 14 maja , brytyjska gazeta The Guardian zamieściła list europejskich liderów problematyki rozwojowej i globalnej, zaniepokojonych zupełnym brakiem  refleksji na temat wyzwań rozwojowej w wystąpieniach kandydatów do Parlamentu Europejskiego. Wśród sygnatariuszy listu są europosłowie, w tym również Filip Kaczmarek.

Poniżej oryginalna treść artykułu.

EU must embrace its role as a world leader.

The Guardian, Wednesday 14 May 2014 21.00 BST

We are dismayed at the lack of attention to global issues in public debate around the elections to the European parliament. In the first televised debate between candidates for the presidency of the European commission, there were only two brief references to international development. We hope that candidates will do better in the second debate on 15 May, and that party leaders in member states will also highlight the issue.
Apart from being the largest market in the world, and a major destination for developing country exports, the EU plays a key role in shaping global trade arrangements – for example, by insisting on human-rights clauses. It has been progressive on climate change. It plays a global role in peacekeeping, having deployed over 30 peace missions, from Aceh to Bosnia. And as the largest donor of aid in the world, the EU has a historic relationship with developing countries. Remember that every year 300,000 women die in childbirth and that nearly half of all child deaths can be attributed to malnutrition. EU programmes compare well in effectiveness and value-for-money.
All these actions benefit those outside our borders but also those within. They help secure economic growth and peace as well as reducing the pressure of forced migration. Europe will not prosper by turning inwards, but by facing outwards. The importance of our global leadership role deserves more than a passing mention in the current debates.
