Green groups and their role in the parliament’s green agenda

Green groups and their role in the parliament’s green agenda

29 June 2022

June 2022

Once considered radical outsiders, the Greens are nowadays claiming an increasingly important role in mainstream politics, particularly in Europe.
Coupled with the urgency of climate change and the loss of support for traditional viewpoints, the Greens worldwide
have moved from single-issue environmental groups to inclusive political groups capable of developing and monitoring policies for key state institutions.

Thus, more and more people are supporting green policies, but who are the Greens, and what do they represent
in today’s politics? This Policy Brief aims to explain what the purpose of these green groups is and their role in the parliament's green agenda.

Kur bota po kalonte krizën më të rëndë të shëndetit publik, vëmendja u kthye kah ndërmarrja e masave preventive.
Ky OP-ED shtjellon masat e ndërmarrura gjatë pandemisë në përpuethshmëri me të drejtat e njeriut dhe se si në raste të krizave publike si ajo e shkaktuar nga COVID-19, e drejta për jetë dhe e drejta për shëndet, racionalisht mbizotërojnë mbi të drejtat e tjera.

Ky artikull është shkruar në kuadër të projektit “Rritja e reagimit të institucioneve të Kosovës në
adresimin e pasojave socio-ekonomike dhe politike të COVID-19, përmes prodhimit të
rekomandimeve të politikave të bazuara në prova”, mbështetur nga Balkan Trust for Democracy,
Projekt Fondi Gjerman Marshall i Shteteve të Bashkuara dhe USAID.
