> Reclaiming Our Rights
> The government has been attacking our basic democratic rights through unjust principles: a presumption of guilt, punishment without trial, and pre-emptive restraints on liberty. These principles link diverse measures and pretexts. Through ASBOs the definition of ‘anti-social behaviour’ has been broadened to prohibit activities which would not otherwise be illegal, even to criminalise individuals who contravene an ASBO. ‘Anti-stalker’ laws have been used to prohibit and criminalise political protest against companies. Having broadened the definition of terrorism, ‘anti-terror’ laws are used to deter, suppress and criminalise political activities.

> Fundamental rights for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual people on the eve of 2007 - the European Year of Equal Opportunities for All
> The year 2006 saw a rise in homophobic discourse and violence in many parts of Europe, including several EU Member States. The Year 2007 has been designed to be the European Year of Equal Opportunities for all. As a follow up to two EP resolutions (on Homophobia in Europe adopted in January 2006 and on the Rise of Racist and Homophobic Violence in Europe adopted in June 2006) both of which gathered parliamentary majority owing largely to the efforts of our group, it is important to send a powerful political signal against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation on the eve of 2007. We would like this conference to be open to a large audience including MEPs, representatives of our respective parties, representatives of NGOs as well as experts in the field of gay and lesbian rights. To attend e-mail with your name, date of birth and your place of residence.

> The Regulation of migration, asylum and movement in the "new Europe" - call for papers
> The impact of the 2004 Madrid and 2005 London bombings brought a new and fiercely regulatory extension to the movement of people in the context of the ‘war on terror’. Other events, such as the assassination of the film director Van Gogh in the Netherlands or the riots at the suburbs of Paris, brought up new questions about immigration policies and models of integration in Europe. Ironically, these policies and models have consolidated at the very time that the European Union is going through unprecedented expansion to include member states from the former Eastern bloc. In turn, expansion has revived theoretical and political debates about ‘old’ and ‘new’ immigration and modes of social control or conflict.

> Children: Over Surveilled, Under Protected
> The government is introducing radical changes in children’s services aimed at improving early identification and intervention with children thought to be at risk of failing to reach their potential. They place a particular emphasis on identifying children who might become delinquent or achieve poorly at school. As part of this policy, several databases are being set up which will contain extensive personal information about children and their families. The amount of data collected will radically alter the privacy of family life and many concerns have been raised about the potential harmful effects of such large-scale surveillance.
