Safe Food Advocacy E...
On 5th December 2022, SAFE held the Webinar “Eating Habits, Mindset and Opportunities. Perspectives on food inclusion and accessibility" chaired by Floriana Cimmarusti, Secretary General, & Luigi Tozzi, Deputy Director. One in four Europeans suffers from at least one form of poverty, and 43 million Europeans cannot afford a quality meal every second day. The Covid-19 crisis has led many countries to face growing levels of severe food insecurity, with the Agricultural Commodity Price Index reaching a peak since 2013. With global poverty on the rise and inequalities exacerbated by the pandemic, vulnerable households with reduced incomes have been considered the primary victims of this crisis. This often led to a reduction in the quality and quantity of the food purchased. Sometimes the problem even affects households from the middle class, which globally increased from 1.8 billion to 3.5 billion people and is expected to grow and reach 5.3 billion by 2030. The objectives of combating poverty, promoting social inclusion and reducing inequalities included in the European Pillars of Social Rights are transversal issues guiding many of SAFE’s actions. For SAFE, there is a current and developing need to enable disadvantaged groups to access affordable and quality food. During the meeting, panelists will discuss reports and studies coming from different EU institutions, including JRC, Universities, and national institutes. Watch the replay here

WEBINAR 29 November 2022, 12:00-13:00 CET Across Europe, limited coverage of dental care is a major barrier for equal and affordable access to oral health care services and a challenge to providing universal health coverage. To improve financial protection for oral health, countries need to increase the scope, depth and breadth of coverage. At the same time, there is need to ensure access to publicly financed dental services such as the availability of dentists contracting with public payers. So what are the recent dental care coverage reforms in Europe? What can we learn from other countries to improve financial protection for oral health? Join us to find out!

Skin-checking apps allow users to capture suspected skin lesions and submit them to a server; the images are then reviewed by an A.I. algorithm, and the results are validated by a dermatologist. They're great because they make use of a tool you already own: your smartphone! Plus, they could prevent skin cancer. Have you ever tried a skin-checking app? If so, which one? Did you like it?

Anti-SLAPP Conference 2022 - DAY 1 Keynote: David Davis MP
6 Dec 2022
ForeignPolicyCentre
The Rt Hon David Davis MP will deliver the opening keynote to the 2nd UK Anti-SLAPP Conference. Since the start of 2022, Mr Davis has been spearheading debates about SLAPPs in the House of Commons and calling for swift action to address this issue in the UK. In January 2022, Mr Davis co-sponsored, together with Liam Byrne MP, a debate on ‘Lawfare and UK Court System’, during which he highlighted the devastating impact that SLAPPs can have both on journalists as well as society at large. Mr Davis highlighted in particular the libel cases brought against journalists Catherine Belton and Tom Burgis, but also took aim at law firms, which he described as having “found an incredibly profitable niche that they are willing to pursue without too much concern about the outcome.” In October 2022, with the UK Government having since committed to taking legislative action in July, Mr Davis called for legislative measures to be moved forward quickly. His comments came during a debate he organised on ‘Lawfare and Investigative Journalism’, in light of the libel cases that have been brought against three media organisations – openDemocracy, The Bureau for Investigative Journalism (TBIJ) and the Telegraph – in the UK in September 2022. Mr Davis will share his thoughts on the issue of SLAPPs, their impact both on media freedom and the health of our society, and the Government’s action to address this issue to date.

Day 1 Panel 1: The UK's Anti-SLAPP Reform - A big enough step in the right direction?
6 Dec 2022
ForeignPolicyCentre
A year ago, the term SLAPPs was not well known in the UK – even within legal and journalistic communities – although the concept of the rich and powerful utilising legal intimidation to suppress stories was all too familiar. While momentum on SLAPPs has been slowly building, the Russian invasion into Ukraine in February 2022, and the connected concern about Russian mal-influence, snapped the issue into sharp focus. In a welcome step, the UK Government launched a consultation on SLAPPs in March led by the Ministry of Justice. The outcome report published in June found that journalists, media and other publishers will “no longer publish information on certain individuals or topics – such as exposing serious wrong-doing or corruption – because of potential legal costs.” In response, the UK Government committed to legislative reform, while the Solicitor’s Regulatory Authority (SRA) has also set out its ongoing steps to address this issue. This session will track the developments over the last year, examine how closely the proposals reflect the recommendations made by the UK Anti-SLAPP Coalition, and discuss whether reforms will go far enough to tackle the issue of SLAPPs in the UK.

The UK Government’s proposed SLAPP reforms have largely focused on England and Wales, yet Scotland and Northern Ireland are also jurisdictions of concern when it comes to the potential for legal threats to suppress media freedom. Both countries have recently grappled with defamation reform. Scotland’s new Defamation and Malicious Publication Law came into force in April 2021. Meanwhile, the Northern Irish Assembly voted to bring in long awaited defamation reform in March 2022, although the bill is now awaiting royal assent to be brought into law. This session will explore what the landscape is like for SLAPPs now in both countries. In particular, what, if any, further steps do Scotland and Northern Ireland need to take in order to avoid becoming hotspots if the law does change in England?

There already exists a variety of Anti-SLAPP laws in 34 states in the United States, as well as several federal districts in Canada and one state in Australia.

This session will explore what learning can be taken from pre-existing laws and initiatives, as well as the various approaches and mechanisms used within them.

6 Dec 2022

All SLAPPs inevitably start with legal letters sent by lawyers and the role of lawyers as potential facilitators of SLAPPs has been a topic of considerable discussion. Several British lawyers have been individually called out in the UK Parliament this year, as well as US Congress, for acting on behalf of certain Russian individuals now subject to sanctions. However, many have argued that it is dangerous to conflate lawyers with their clients and when it comes to the court, the cab rank rule must be followed. Others point to the tactics some lawyers have used on behalf of their clients as unnecessarily intimidating at best and at worst intentionally misleading, impacting the ability of those subject of SLAPPs to adequately defend themselves. This session will explore why lawyers have been seen as potential enablers, including questions around lack of due diligence undertaken by law firms when onboarding clients and concern around the misuse of ‘without prejudice’ and ‘private and confidential’ in legal letters. It will also touch upon what the legal community should be doing to stop SLAPPs.

ForeignPolicyCentre
In January 2022, Carole Cadwalladr spent five days in the Royal Courts of Justice defending herself against a libel claim brought by millionaire businessman and Leave.EU funder Arron Banks for comments she made in a TED talk in 2019. Cadwalladr would ultimately go on to win, but her three-year battle came at great personal cost and was, as she has described, akin to stepping ‘into the pages of a Kafka novel’. While the judgement handed down by Justice Steyn in June 2022 was heralded as a landmark case for media freedom, the judge also took the unprecedented step of stating she found it “neither fair nor apt” to describe the case as a SLAPP suit. This is not a view shared by members of the UK Anti-SLAPP Coalition (whose co-chairs outlined why in a guest article for the Bar Council), but highlighted the continued confusion surrounding the term. Banks decided to sue Cadwalladr as an individual rather than The Observer, which published her original reporting, or TED, the publisher of her talk. It is this type of tactic that can characterise SLAPPs, not simply the merits of the claim. Isolated from institutional support and funding, Cadwalladr had to risk financial ruin and was only able to defend the case thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign. During that time, the journalist was also subject to other forms of harassment, including online trolling and smear campaigns. To talk through Cadwalladr’s experiences with her will be Rebecca Vincent, Director of Operations and Campaigns at Reporters without Borders, who monitored the trial in January.

Typically the intention of a SLAPP claimant is not necessarily to reach the court stage, where the facts of the matter might be examined more closely, but rather to draw out the legal proceedings in order to delay publication and/or exhaust the financial as well as other resources (time, energy and psychological) of the defendant. This puts journalists and media subject to legal threats under incredible pressure to fold. Those who decide to push back therefore face huge challenges, not least how to continue their professional activities while also trying to run a legal defence. Given the high cost of defending against legal threats, SLAPPs can be particularly threatening to smaller outlets/independent journalists, which often do not have ready access to legal support. This session will hear from journalists subject to SLAPPs, as well as lawyers that support them, to understand how they cope as well as how SLAPPs sit alongside the other challenges they face.

The UK also remains a member of the Executive Committee of the Media Freedom Coalition, an initiative it started in 2019 at which time the High Level Panel of Legal Experts was also formed. Domestically, the UK adopted a national action plan in March 2021 to protect the safety of journalists in line with UN and OSCE commitments, however as it stands this only addresses physical violations and online harassment.

To successfully mitigate the impact of SLAPPs involves media and publishers taking measures at every stage – before, during and after cases have been filed. Tackling legal threats and defending SLAPP cases, starts from when legal letters are received, but what are the practical steps that can be taken ahead of time? What benefit is there in reporting threats to regulatory authorities such as the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) as well as media freedom organisations and platforms (such as the Council of Europe’s Platform for the Safety of Journalists)? How should journalists and publishers approach media coverage of their cases and ensure they are getting their message out?

6 Dec 2022
ForeignPolicyCentre
The current reforms proposed by the UK Government to address SLAPPs (strategic lawsuits against public participation) have been widely seen as a part of their response to the ongoing war in Ukraine. While interest in SLAPPs had already been growing, the Ministry of Justice launched their call for evidence on SLAPPs in March 2022, just two weeks after the Russian invasion started. Speakers will discuss what if anything has changed since February, the role and effectiveness of sanctions and if these have (or have not) lessened the impact of SLAPPs. While much attention has been placed on Russia, this event will focus on the UK’s role as the ‘enabler’ both of the corrupt wealth being exported out of countries, like Russia, but also as a hub for services (legal and beyond) to shut down scrutiny, including through the use of SLAPPs. These systems are open to abuse not just by Russians, but the current situation in Russia has shown what can happen if we continue to fail to do anything effectively about it. Speakers: Edward Lucas Author, European and transatlantic security consultant and fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) Catherine Belton Investigative journalist and author of Putin’s People Galina Arapova Media Defence Lawyer, Russia Dame Margaret Hodge MP Chair of the APPG on Anti-Corruption and Responsible Tax Franz Wild Editor, The Enablers Project, The Bureau for Investigative Journalists

Cow’s milk is now the most common single cause of fatal anaphylaxis in school-aged children. Adam expands on emerging allergens, giving examples ranging from concentrated pea protein to cashew milk, and discusses why there needs to be a focus on policy change to keep people safe.

The Anaphylaxis Campaign, Allergy UK and BSACI have collaborated to develop a new ‘Model Policy for Allergy Management at School Guidelines’ to help schools keep pupils with allergies safe. Maggie and Sarah introduce the policy and explain how the guidelines support all school staff to recognise the symptoms of anaphylaxis, administer adrenaline early, and encourage a ‘whole school’ approach to allergy management. The policy will help schools take a proactive approach towards preventing future deaths from anaphylaxis whilst pupils are in their care.

Taking Doha by the hand

EU Civil Protection ...
There are many reasons children drop out of school in Lebanon. Sometimes, the barriers are too high to overcome, but each time we find a solution to bring a child back to the school benches it feels like a mission accomplished. Brain surgery left Doha with nerve damage and impaired eyesight. It took her brother’s hand, a motivated teacher and encouraging parents for Doha to return to the classroom in the refugee settlement where she lives with her Syrian family. Thanks to EU humanitarian support, War Child and local partners have been running the SHIELD programme. It has helped thousands of vulnerable children in Lebanon, including those with a disability, get educated.

3D printing is part of the innovative process called additive manufacturing, which means the production of three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The printer uses a kind of layering process, by which one layer is added after the other until you have a fully formed object. In medicine and healthcare, 3D printing could not only revolutionize drug creation and the production of medical equipment, but it could also offer new methods for practicing medicine, optimizing supply chains, and proposing cheaper and way more personalized medical services.

health EMCDDA webinar: How wastewater monitoring can boost preparedness for new health threats
EMCDDA webinar: How wastewater monitoring can boost preparedness for new health threats
1 Dec 2022
EMCDDA
Objective: to explore wastewater analysis as a methodology contributing to EU preparedness and response Background: COVID-19 has raised the attention of Europe, and globally, on the importance of readiness towards potential emergencies. Improved and innovative monitoring methodologies are at the core of the research-based actions taken to respond to potential threats. Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE), also known as wastewater monitoring or wastewater surveillance, only began to gain traction as an epidemiological tool in the early 21st century with a diverse array of applications but remained known to only a relatively small group of specialists. However, in 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic catapulted WBE into mainstream attention and showed what a powerful public health tool it could be. It is more than a decade that the EMCDDA is exploring the analysis of municipal wastewater for drugs and their metabolic products to estimate community consumption. Recent investigations have shown the potential of WBE for drugs signal alert, such as the identification of NPS and increased consumption of crack in some EU cities. In conversation with: Frederic Been, Assistant Professor, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam & Researcher, KWR Water Research Institute, The Netherlands. Tim Boogaerts, PhD researcher, Toxicological Centre, University of Antwerp, Belgium. Sara Castiglioni, Head of the Environmental Epidemiological Indicators Laboratory, Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri IRCCS, Italy. Chairperson: João Matias, EMCDDA. Opening and closing remarks: Alexis Goosdeel, Director EMCDDA. Format: EMCDDA opening remarks, panellists’ questions, guided discussion, Q&A Participants will respond to the following questions: How wastewater contributed to the emergency response to COVID-19? In the drugs field: how can it contribute to monitor new threats? (Crack case study) What was the impact of COVID-19 on drugs? (Wastewater analysis to monitor opioids in Europe) How can wastewater analysis help monitor NPS use in Europe? Length: 1,5 hours Participants: The webinar is open to all upon registration, after which the person will receive a link to connect. Date: Wednesday 16th November, 13.00–14.30 CET | 12.00–13.30 Lisbon time https://www.emcdda.europa.eu/event/2022/11/emcdda-webinar-how-wastewater-monitoring-can-boost-preparedness-new-health-threats_en
