Foreign policy

My main responsibility as a deputy member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs are the countries Algeria, Marocco, Tunisia, Syria, Libya and Egypt. I am committed to engage with civil society actors from these countries and I want to take joint action with them against the violation of human rights. Torture, restriction of freedom of the press, oppression of women – there is a lot to do. I am especially concerned about the situation in Syria. Germany must push even harder for a peaceful solution of the conflict. One important step is the criminal prosecution of war crimes.
