*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- 4 Years of Investigations in more than 34 Countries by PanEuropean CoE's Social Rights Committee, clearly designated the Right to Work and Vocational Guidance/Training among the most Important Problems Nowadays, as anounced its 2 vice-Presidents, Monika Schlachter and Professor Petros Stangos and Monika  Schlachter, who Highlighted key aspects of the situation on these points in Reply to relevant "Eurofora"s Questions, during a Press Conference at the CoE in Strasbourg :


+ About 14 CoE's Member States, who have already Ratified CoE's New, "Revised" Social Charter, including a Collective Complaints' procedure, are practicaly dispensed from a Traditional Obligation to present, each 2 Years, National Reports of Implementation for Check, having, instead, a possibility to do so just each 4 Years, (i.e. inside a Twice Wider Time span), so that they were Not Included, Now, in the Present Round of Checks, (as, f.ex., the current Chair of CoE, Cyprus : 11/2016 - 5/2017), as CoE's Director on Reporting process, Karl Friedrich Bopp, explained, meanwhile, replying at another relevant Question by "Eurofora".

- As far as it concerns the Social Charter's No 1 Article, about the "Right to Work", ESRC's vice-President Monika Schlachter, after Observing that several Violations and other Problems were found particularly as far as it concerns Certain "Problematic" Categories of People, including the "Elderly", etc., replied to an "Eurofora" Question about an apparent Difference between f.ex. USA's trend to let several People continue Working even at Ages unusual in Europe, (f.ex. in order to Benefit from their accumulated Experience, Reputation, Contacts, etc), and a rather Opposed Impression in several CoE's Member States, made it clear that, behind such Facts, lies an Important Debate about Employment Policies:

- At a certain moment, some Governments had been Convinced that by Pushing massively Elder Workers to become Pensioners, this would Create Jobs for Young People, and Benefit the Economy. But, Afterwards, they found that it didn't work at all, and were left with a Lot of Costs for Pensions to Bear, without having enough returns from new workers, she Replied, in substance.


=> Therefore, such issues should be better addressed in another overall framework of a comprehensive, General Policy, which wouldn't limit itself merely into playing one category of Workers against anOther, but, on the Contrary, take them All Together into Account, in an Adequate way both for Social Rights and the Public Interest, she added later, also in Reply to "Eurofora"s above mentioned Question, Later-on.


------------------------------------------------------


+ Moreover, Professor Stangos, the other ESRC's vice-President, Replied to anOther "Eurofora" Question on his Earlier observation that Vocational Guidance and/or Training might also "Change the Structure of the Market place", if, f.ex., Public Authorities might consider that it would Help Find Jobs, but, sometimes, People Complaint or Protest, if that might also, eventualy, Diminish the Level/Quality of Capacities that Workers might have Given Many Years to Build, pushing them unreasonably towards Lower Levels in the Division of Work:


- As a matter of General Principle, States are Required to Examine Each Individual Case, one by one, according to Each Worker's Personal Characteristics, i.e. withOut Imposing Ready-made Mechanical Solutions, he said in substance, (while, however, Abstaining from saying whether such Concrete Problems, as those Evoked above, might, eventualy, Exist in Real Practice, and how Serious might be their potential Consequencies, in fact).


---------------------------------------
++ Meanwhile, speaking, Later this Evening, at anOther CoE Parliamentary Assembly's Debate on "Social Dialogue", including the Experienced President of that PanEuropean body's Social Affairs Committee, ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Stella Kyriakides, observed that, well Beyond some avoidable, eventual, excesses, Respect for Social Rights as that of Workers' Trade Unions, etc., can Help also Avoid the Risk to be Accused to Stay Far Away from Citizens' concerns, instead of Coming Closer enough to them.

     The High-Tech, brand new Crisis' management Center (CMC) inaugurated Wednesday by French Minister Bernard Kouchner, fits well EU's Humanitarian and Security-Defence aims, revealed a gathering of the largest Group of MEPs (EPP) organised in Paris these days, to prepare the debate on French EU Presidency's priorities (July - December 2008), that President Nicolas Sarkozy will present next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

        Due to face a large spectrum of Crises : from Humanitarian (f.ex. Natural Catastrophes, evacuation of Civilians or rapatriation of expats, populations exposed to Hunger and/or risky Sanitary conditions, etc), to various consequencies of Terrorist threats, Armed conflicts, or of Peace-keeping operations, etc, and joining Geopolitics with Diplomacy, CMC is able to deal with urgencies in real time anywhere in the world, by concentrating qualified Experts and impressive High-Tech equipment (i.e. Giant Computer Screens working in parallel, Visio-conferences, Satellite connections, etc).

        Kouchner stressed that "Humanitarian and Political considerations can co-exist in real practice, if each one respects its independence", and, speaking to EuroFora, underlined his intention to have special representatives in "Strategic" locations, creating a "Network", open particularly to European cooperation.

        - "We must fill the gap in Europe's Civilian and Military capacities", declared earlier at Matignon, French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, while EU Commissioners met with their counterparts among French Ministers.

        This point was at the focus of European People Party's "'Study Days" in Paris, from 2 to 4 July 2008, entitled  : "For a Safer Europe", with a central Debate on EU's Security and Defence policies, where EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, French Minister of Defence Herve Morin, and the Chairman of EU's Defence Committee, MEP Karl von Vogaw, spoke before meeting with Sarkozy, Wednesday afternoon.

    - "We need specifically European systems, including, f.ex. Satellite networks, etc", stressed the experienced Chairman Karl von Vogaw, speaking after the meeting with President Sarkozy to European Journalists from EuroNews, EuroPolitique and EuroFora.
    - And there where "European forces are already gathered, (f.ex. in Cyprus, Balkans, Lebanon, etc), if new operations started, I'd prefer to see them under European command in Future", he added, in reply to questions on how to overcome problems raised by a 3rd Countries as Turkey.

    Vogaw presented earlier, at EPP's plenary, a comprehensive Report on EU's Security and Defence policy, with a strong High-Tech component (including Satellites, UAV, protected Telecoms, Strategic Air and Sea Transports, Space assets, etc), sharp references to Political will and Historic necessities, while also stressing that EU must overcome the divide between Civilian and Military research and activities, making "a close cooperation between Civilian and Military means" a "specific" mark of Europe.

    The experienced Top MEP, after helping to build the "EuroZone", as a long-time Chairman of EU Parliament's Economic Committee, has recently started to chair a brand new "Security and Defence Committee", aiming to build European Defence, as the 2nd task of his life, as he told earlier to EuroFora.
