Persecuted christians - Conference at the European Parliament about the persecution of Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa (Credit: MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen)

Break the silence on persecuted Christians

MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen held a conference and exhibition at the European Parliament to denounce the silence surrounding the suffering of persecuted Christians worldwide. The EU must take stronger action against violations of freedom of religion, especially in Africa where lives are lost due to this silence.

Renew Europe MEP Dragos Tudorache, chair of AIDA (Special Committee on Artificial Intelligence in the Digital Age) and Parliament co-rapporteur on the AI Act, is organizing an in-person, high-level conference in Brussels on Artificial Intelligence and its role in the future of Europe. Together with his guests, he will debate policy ideas around European security and European democracy and forward the outcome of the debates in the form of a white paper with concrete policy recommendations to the Commission, French Presidency, and the Conference on the Future of Europe.

Date and location: 30th of March 2022, 2:30pm to 5:30pm, Brussels, live-streamed on:

The European Union is at a crossroads. This is not an ordinary crossroads, and it is not an ordinary and periodic moment of soul-searching and fine-tuning of the European project. Overlapping mutations in the fabric of global affairs, with yet unknown effects, make the following years crucial for the future and perhaps survival of Europe. This has been accelerated to urgency by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Technology, and artificial intelligence (AI) as a universal technology, in particular, will be a key ingredient for building a stronger and more democratic Europe and for countering the centrifugal forces that are undermining the European project and are threatening our security. The digital transformation, fueled by AI, will underpin Europe’s transformation,” declared Dragos Tudorache.  

Artificial Intelligence can be applied to every field of human activity and in every transformation process required to strengthen and consolidate the European Union. Given the current strategic landscape, two areas where AI can have an impact stand out as foundations that need reinforcing for securing the future of Europe: European security and European democracy. If the Union is secure and if its democracy is strengthened and stable, we have a real chance to make the Union a technology-powered geopolitically relevant actor on the world scene. Artificial intelligence can serve as a catalyst, he continued.
