The helicopter is fitted with a new glass-digital cockpit and fuselage in composite material. The FlightLogicTM Chelton Synthetic Vision EFIS and a new digital duplex autopilot on 4 axes provide pilots with an accurate situational awareness and the ability to manage each mission with a high degree of safety. The AWSP, is also equipped with numerous optional kits to the advantage of the considerable operational flexibility possibility to reconfigure the helicopter in a short time.

The Grand offers a long and spacious passenger cabin that provides high levels of comfort in different approved configurations. The sanitary compartment is completely separate from the cockpit so that medical staff can easily access the longitudinal stretchers without invading the cockpit.

The internal layout includes provision for the installation of all necessary medical equipment to treat patients whilst in transit. Two standard rails are positioned both in the cabin rear bulkhead and on upper side panels that include outlets for oxygen, emergency air and power. The helicopter is equipped with hoist, emergency floatation gear, sun light, cargo hook. La premessa descrive la struttura e gli aspetti generali del documento;.

The ITI Integrated Territorial Investment instrument is supposed to enable across-the-board territorial investments to be made more efficiently in a given geographical area. Will it play a role also in the macro-regional and Euro-regional strategies?

If so, what role will it play and how? Integrated territorial investments ITIs can be a tool to implement territorial strategies in an integrated way in territorial cooperation policy, including in the context of macro-regional, sea-basin or similar strategies. An intermediate body to carry out the management and implementation of an ITI could, for example, be a European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation, or another legal public body established under the laws of one of the participating countries.

ITIs will allow increased coordination between different programmes and funds by bundling funding from several priorities in one or more programmes funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund or the Cohesion Fund for the purposes of multi-dimensional and cross-sectoral intervention. An ITI can be set up on any sub-regional or interregional level.

It is important however, that the area covered by an ITI is a functional territory with shared characteristics, problems, opportunities. It could therefore be used for cross-border functional regions cross-border urban conurbations, mountainous areas, sections of river basins as well as for facilitating macro-regions, which could also cover several functional areas in a number of Member States. Oggetto: Investimento Territoriale Integrato.

La Commissione lo definisce come strumento efficace per fornire un meccanismo flessibile per la formulazione di risposte integrate alle diverse esigenze territoriali. Non esiste dunque alcun finanziamento specifico assegnato agli ITI. The Commission describes this as an instrument that will prove effective in providing a flexible mechanism for formulating integrated responses to diverse territorial needs. ITIs can be set up below priority level by the managing authority or authorities of the programmes that provide support for an ITI.

The managing authority bears the final responsibility for managing and implementing the projects of an ITI. However, managing authorities may designate one or more intermediate bodies, including local authorities, regional development bodies or non-governmental organisations, to carry out the management and implementation of an ITI. An ITI is not a programme, but an instrument set up under the priority level to address the specific needs of a given territory.

Therefore there is no specific funding allocated to ITIs. Oggetto: Tutela del diritto all'autodeterminazione dei popoli in Europa. Entrambi i documenti, all'articolo 1, sanciscono il diritto all'autodeterminazione dei popoli. In base ai presupposti di cui sopra, come garantisce, tutela e integra nella propria legislazione il principio ex articolo 1 della Dichiarazione universale dei diritti dell'uomo e del Patto internazionale sui diritti civili?

Come intende includere nel processo di integrazione europea anche le prospettive di popoli come quello scozzese, catalano e del Nord Italia, che aspirano all'indipendenza e al riconoscimento? Intende aprire un tavolo permanente di confronto con i rappresentanti di queste aree? Tali questioni rientrano infatti tra le competenze degli Stati membri. The right of peoples to choose the form of governance which corresponds most closely to their conception of the relationship between state and nation must be safeguarded. At the same time, peoples must be protected from any form of state interference that limits their freedom and their economic, social and cultural development.

It is on the basis of these principles that the Scottish people is determined to call for independence from the United Kingdom and the Catalan people aspires to separate nationhood, particularly in the light of the unsustainable tax burden imposed by the Spanish Government which, after decades of indebtedness, is unable to cope with the current economic crisis. There is a similar situation in Northern Italy, whose productive sectors are being held back by the record levels of taxation imposed by the Government. How does the Commission intend to include in the process of European integration the views of peoples such as the Scottish, Catalan and Northern Italian peoples, which aspire to independence and to recognition?

Does the Commission intend to set up a permanent forum for discussions with representatives of those areas? Does the Commission agree that it should pay renewed attention to these areas and offer the possibility of interacting directly with it, through new forms of governance, to regions whose productivity rates are among the highest in Europe and which, therefore, play a key role in ensuring the competitiveness of the Community system, but are now at risk because of the indebtedness of the nation states?

In particular, the Commission has no competence over matters concerning the definition of what is a national minority, the recognition of the status of minorities or their self-determination and autonomy. Those matters fall under the responsibility of the Member States. Oggetto: Nuova programmazione della politica di coesione Le proposte legislative della Commissione in merito alla politica di coesione per il periodo assicurano il pieno allineamento della politica di coesione con la strategia Europa Per porre in atto la politica di coesione sono essenziali il partenariato e la governance multilivello che pertanto sono stati chiaramente radicati nei regolamenti proposti.

Le proposte della Commissione intendono rafforzare l'orientamento della politica in direzione dei risultati. With reference to the new cohesion policy programming for , does the Commission think it is necessary to strengthen the ties between this policy and the Europe strategy, especially with regard to its development between the Community, national, sub-national and local levels?

Communicating the Environment to Save the Planet

What top priorities does the Commission believe should be met to ensure that the new cohesion policy can achieve results that are even more tangible than those achieved in the programming period which is about to end? Partnership and multi-level governance are essential to the delivery of cohesion policy, and have therefore been clearly enshrined in the proposed regulations. The Commission proposals aim to reinforce the result orientation of the policy.

The legislative proposals also include a possibility to make use of an output based payment system, where payment is conditional on the delivery of outputs and results of projects, not on the submission of expenditure documents. Oggetto: Pescherecci italiani sequestrati in Egitto. Risulta alla Commissione che natanti appartenenti ad altri Stati membri abbiano avuto problemi simili? In linea di principio gli altri Stati non possono interferire con tali questioni puramente nazionali, a meno che la definizione delle acque in questione non sia contestata a norma del diritto internazionale del mare applicabile.

Thanks to the intervention of the Italian Foreign Minister on an official visit to Egypt and the Italian Embassy in Cairo, the boats were released after a few hours. Does the Commission have any more detailed information about what happened? Does it know whether vessels belonging to other Member States have had similar problems? The Commission was not aware of the incident referred to by the Honourable Member and does not have additional information about it or about similar incidents. It should nevertheless be emphasised that, by virtue of the European Union's exclusive external competence, access by vessels flying the flag of Member States to the fishery resources that occur within the waters under the sovereignty and jurisdiction of third countries presupposes the conclusion of an international agreement between the European Union and the third country concerned.

No such international fisheries partnership agreement has been concluded with Egypt. Consequently, there would not have been any reason for the Commission to engage in a dialogue with the Egyptian authorities about the incident in question. Under international law, it is for the coastal States, i.

Egypt in the present instance, to define the outer limits of the waters under its sovereignty and jurisdiction. In principle, other States cannot interfere in such purely national matters unless the definition of the waters in question is contested under the applicable international law of the sea. As no international fisheries partnership agreement has been concluded between the European Union and Egypt, there is no agreement about the limits of any particular zones where vessels flying the flag of a Member State would be allowed to fish within the waters under Egypt's sovereignty and jurisdiction.

La Procura di Torino ha avviato un'indagine riguardo alla possibile connessione tra l'impiego di pesticidi nelle coltivazioni e nei campi erbosi adibiti al gioco del calcio e la Sindrome Laterale Amiotrofica SLA. Questo a seguito dell'aumento delle diagnosi nel nella Regione Piemonte: 43 casi tra calciatori su 30mila tra professionisti e dilettanti e casi tra gli agricoltori.

Questi dati mostrano un'incidenza della malattia di venti volte superiore alla media. Se non sono ancora disponibili studi in merito, intende essa avviarne? These statistics indicate that the incidence of the ALS in these groups is 20 times higher than the average rate. ALS is a neurodegenerative disease which affects the motor neurons, the nerve cells that control movement. Is the Commission aware of any studies indicating whether there is a connection between the use of pesticides on farms and football pitches and the increased incidence of ALS among famers and footballers? If no such studies are available yet, does it intend to commission any?

The Commission is aware of the investigation the Honourable Member refers to. However, the Commission is not aware of any specific approved active substance for which a proven link with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis has been demonstrated. This research mainly focuses on genetic variations, pathophysiology, systems biology, development of new therapies and identification of new drug targets. In addition, another subset of FP7 research projects is focused on improving risk assessment of pesticides and on understanding the pathways through which exposure to pesticides leads to health conditions, including neurotoxicity and neurological disorders.

This measure affects investors who have completed most of the stages of the complex and costly authorisation process, as well as those who have already completed the entire process. The disproportionate reduction in tariffs reduces the profitability of renewable energy projects, rendering them unbankable. It might also result in substantial losses and damages for investors. The Commission has however stated that support schemes should be adapted over time by applying the best practice to avoid undue market distortions and excessive costs.

Concerning the wider context, the Commission would like to recall that Bulgaria's share of renewable energy in final energy consumption was Finally, the Commission does not have the competence to assess the compliance of the legislations of the Member States with the European Convention of Human Rights. Uit het meest recente inspectieverslag van het gemeenschappelijke toezichtsorgaan van Europol over de tenuitvoerlegging van het TFTP-rapport, waarvan de volledige details op verzoek van de Amerikaanse regering geheim blijven, is duidelijk gebleken dat de TFTP-overeenkomst niet naar behoren is uitgevoerd.

Weet zij of er strafrechtelijk onderzoek plaatsvindt in de lidstaten? Heeft Europol maatregelen getroffen om onderzoek naar deze kwestie te doen? De Commissie voert momenteel geen onderzoek naar deze kwestie. Tot op heden beschikken de Commissie noch Europol over informatie over strafrechtelijk onderzoek met betrekking tot deze zaak in de lidstaten. De nationale regelgevende instanties kunnen de bevindingen bespreken en onderzoeken inleiden.

Europol heeft bevestigd dat het geen actie heeft ondernomen om deze kwestie te onderzoeken. Of de regels van de Amerikaanse TFTP-overeenkomst zijn geschonden, moeten de Amerikaanse autoriteiten zelf onderzoeken. Het is het geachte Parlementslid echter wellicht bekend dat de Commissie momenteel wetgevingsvoorstellen voorbereidt voor de bijwerking van de antiwitwasrichtlijn en Verordening nr. Is the Commission conducting an inquiry into the matter? Is it aware of any criminal inquiries in the Member States?

Has Europol taken any action to investigate the matter? Does the Commission consider, on the basis of the above, that the rules and institutions in charge of fighting money laundering and the financing of terrorism and crime are performing adequately and in a reliable manner? The Commission is currently not conducting an inquiry into this matter.

To date neither the Commission nor Europol have information on criminal inquiries in Member States related to this case. Their civil regulatory bodies may review the findings and initiate investigations. Europol confirmed that it has not taken any action to investigate the matter. The Commission is not in a position to assess if US legislation implementing FATF standards has been evaded by money laundering practices. With regard to EU institutions and EU legislation, in general, further assessment is needed, although preliminary analysis shows that many of the reported infringements occurred before the current EU rules e.

In these discussions, the Commission and the European External Action Service have strongly underlined the importance of this matter and encouraged the Cambodian authorities to ensure that land disputes are dealt with through the mechanisms created by the Cambodian Government to address the concerns expressed by its citizens. The Commission has requested information from Cambodian authorities on the implementation of this directive and closely monitors other developments in land disputes linked to ELCs.

In this context, civil society organisations play a very important role as the EU's partners on the ground in all Cambodian provinces. The Commission agrees that legitimate concerns have been raised on the allocation of ELCs. It is not convinced, however, that stopping the import of sugar from Cambodia would solve this matter. Any action to stop imports is likely to deprive the country of income which can create better living conditions for Cambodia's citizens.

In the view of the Commission, the best way to address this issue is through dialogue. TOR is a technology that enables people to surf the web anonymously. It has become increasingly popular since it played a role in facilitating the Arab Spring movement. Why is the Commission partially censoring Internet access to its site whilst at the same time it is conducting a public consultation on net neutrality?

What compromise does the Commission propose between, on the one hand, the goal of transparency that it is pursuing in terms of traffic management and, on the other, respect for anonymity and data protection as advocated by TOR? The Commission is committed to maintaining the open and neutral character of the Internet. At the same time the Commission strictly respects the legislation on the protection of personal data. The Commission understands and respects that citizens may prefer to stay anonymous when accessing websites hosted on Europa. Nevertheless, the Commission has the duty to take all the necessary measures to ensure a high rate of availability of its websites for all citizens.

The Commission therefore needs to ensure the reliability and security of its networks and websites and those it manages for other institutions against cyber- attacks. In this context the Commission takes all the measures deemed necessary to mitigate risks and counteract attacks that occur, taking account of the technical specificities of the latter. Personal data of respondents to the Commission's public consultation is strictly protected in line with EU data protection legislation. For transparency purposes the responses to the public consultation questionnaire will be published.

However, all respondents have the possibility to indicate after each question, whether their response contains confidential information. If the respondent mentions that the answer is confidential, it will not be published. Et si le panier se renverse, est-ce que tout est perdu? And, if the basket is upset, what happens to the eggs?

Should the providers of cloud computing services be obliged to offer their clients a backup for the files stored on their servers? What law will apply if a cloud services user is not a Union citizen, or if the service provider operates inside the Union but is based in a country outside it? Using a cloud computing service implies that the direct control for personal data is handed over to a third party. As compared to on-site data this loss of direct control is balanced by the fact that professional cloud services can often provide a higher level of security protection and threat awareness than can usually be achieved by consumers, SMEs and even large organisations.

Currently, there is no legal obligation for Cloud Service Providers to offer backup plans for their users.

    Such provisions where they exist are covered by the terms of the contract which the user accepts. The Commission will. Thus European law applies whenever the data controller is established or makes use of equipment based in the European Economic Area. Why has no target been proposed for after ? Why have no rough plans been drawn up for want of a specific objective for the medium and long term?

    The Commission recognises the importance of providing planning certainty to the automotive industry and intends to issue a communication before the end of the year in order to consult on the form and stringency of post CO 2 targets for light duty vehicles. Objet: Normalisation et gouvernance mondiale dans l'informatique en nuage.

    Two sections of the Commission communication on cloud computing address the questions of standardisation and global governance. At present, cloud service providers have an interest in setting their own standards, in order to prevent their services from being accessible from other platforms the interoperability issue. Consequently, consumers may end up being locked into a given technology.

    On the question of global governance, how does the Commission intend to play a greater role in international forums with a view to advancing common objectives for cloud computing services? Wider use standards will help cloud take up. The use of standards is also considered as the key action to prevent consumers being locked in a given technology or a given cloud service provider. Although cloud computing at the moment still lacks widely recognised standards in key areas such as interoperability, security and data portability, certain standardisation activities are taking off.

    Also industry is actively exploring and proposing standards for cloud computing. The Commission is strongly supporting these ongoing standardisation initiatives and emphasises especially the need to coordinate the ongoing activities in order to avoid the fragmentation in the future service offerings.

    As regards the global governance the aim of the Commission is to deepen its structured collaboration with international partners not only on technological issues but also on legal ones. Objet: Chiffres et statistiques de l'informatique en nuage. The Commission is currently finalising its strategy on cloud computing, with the aim being to encourage off-site data storage. What instruments does the Commission intend to use to encourage Member States to exploit the potential of cloud computing and support them in doing so?

    The European Commission contracted IDC to undertake a survey of enterprises already using cloud computing. The objective of the study was to analyse the expected demand for cloud computing in Europe providing quantitative estimates. The results will be published alongside a communication on cloud computing which is expected in early autumn. But with the public sector market fragmented, its requirements have little impact on market dynamics at the moment, services integration is low and citizens do not get the best value for money. The ECP will bring together industry expertise and public sector users to work on common procurement requirements for cloud computing in an open and fully transparent way.

    Wenn ja: Wie beurteilt sie diese beiden Vorhaben? Wie beurteilt die Kommission diese Vorgangsweise? Wenn nationale Rechtsvorschriften vorliegen, haben diese immer Vorrang vor den Normen. Although doctors practising in various disciplines perform cosmetic work, standardisation will mean that only plastic surgeons will be involved. Experts fear that the exclusion of an important group of doctors will make it impossible for a proper standard for cosmetic surgery, based on the agreement of all groups of players concerned, to be put forward.

    The concern is that the CEN standard in its present form will put patients at risk. Important expert proposals for the improvement of the draft standard have been ignored. Proponents of the standard want future liposuction treatment to be carried out only as hospital operations under general anaesthesia, thereby trivialising the risks inherent in procedures involving general anaesthesia. Scientific studies suggest that such an outdated standard would cause patients additional, serious complications.

    Cosmetic surgery specialists have long been in favour of safe outpatient liposuction performed under tumescent anaesthesia. If so, what is its view of these developments? Does this not in fact mean the exclusion of a large group of general practitioners who undertake cosmetic work from the standards procedure? Might the adoption of the draft standard in its present form not endanger patient safety?

    Such European standards are prepared and adopted by national standardisation bodies — the members of CEN. The application of European standards is voluntary and national legal requirements, if they exist, always take precedence over standards. In certain areas the Commission makes direct standardisation requests to CEN asking for the preparation of European standards in support of Union legislation or policies. In the case in question, there has been no such Commission request and this standardisation project is not linked to Union legislation or policies.

    Manufacturer

    According to information provided by CEN, this future European standard would fill gaps in national requirements for aesthetic surgery services. It aims to increase patient safety and consumer protection bearing in mind that, in most Member States such services are not covered by public health systems. The Commission encourages the relevant interested parties to submit their comments directly through national standardisation bodies in line with established CEN procedures.

    What assessment has the Commission made of the level of funding in the last five years through EU programmes to businesses and other entities based in Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories? Is it legal under EU procurement guidelines for a Member State to specify in the tender documents that any products supplied as part of the contract must exclude produce from illegal Israeli settlements? Is it legal under EU procurement guidelines for a Member State to specify in the tender documents that companies operating in Israeli settlements can be excluded from contracts?

    What assessment has the Commission made of the level of funding in the last five years provided, through EU programmes, to businesses and other entities based in Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories? Is it legal under EU procurement guidelines for a Member State to specify in the tender document that any products supplied as part of the contract must exclude produce from illegal Israeli settlements? Is it legal under EU procurement guidelines for a Member State to specify in the tender document that companies operating in Israeli settlements can be excluded from contracts?

    Are these taxes not a barrier to free movement within the Community? If they are, is there any legislation that the Commission is planning to prevent these taxes? The European Commission will monitor the situation to ensure that this is not the case. Almunia au nom de la Commission. A few years ago the Commission had already begun to denounce the dominance of Internet Explorer, because the Microsoft browser was installed by default on all computers running Windows.

    Brussels took the view that this was liable to distort competition. It was then up to consumers to make their choice. However, on some computers running Windows 7, Microsoft has not offered this screen, whilst at the same time ensuring the Commission in an official report that everything was perfectly in order. This apology is so weak as to be almost insulting to the European institutions. Will any real deterrent penalties be imposed on this operator, thereby restoring the Commission's authority, which has been relatively undermined in this case? The Commission takes compliance with its decisions very seriously.

    Should the violation of the commitments by Microsoft be confirmed in this investigation, the Commission will consider imposing adequate sanctions on Microsoft. Il permet d'identifier des personnes, pas seulement sur Facebook. In acquiring the company face. It allows recent photographs to be compared with older ones and suggests the names of persons to be identified. The EU has already considered this thorny issue.

    The combination of facial recognition and the geotagging of photos means that Facebook can in theory know who was with whom at a given time and at a given place. This is not necessarily of vital importance for everyone.

    I segreti del camion in cui stiamo vivendo e facendo il giro del mondo

    But, combined with a user account, the site can be used to refine advertising profiles that are used for targeting advertisements which are then sold to advertisers at a higher rate. Facial recognition is a highly reliable biometric tool, based on features such as the eyes, nose, mouth or ears, taking into account shapes and distances. It can be used to identify people, and not only on Facebook. Does it not agree that the widespread use of these systems is incompatible with the protection of people's privacy?

    Flight Operations

    Does it not agree that clear legislative markers should be put down to ensure that these platforms do not become tools of mass surveillance? Could the Commission perhaps require or request that users give their consent before being identified rather than having to withdraw their identification after having been identified?

    The proliferation of facial recognition technology combined with GPS has had a major impact on the private life of citizens. In fact, facial recognition technology combined with GPS is used in many different contexts, from simple anonymous counting to the exhaustive tracing of the activities of named individuals. It can be used for entertainment, commercial or security purposes. There are many different types of risk faced by citizens, depending on how and for what purpose the data is processed. The proposed reform of the data protection rules takes into account the proliferation of biometric data processing and reinforces the protection of citizens, in particular by giving a precise definition for biometric data and specifying that a risk assessment must be carried out when biometric data processing is going to be used.

    Germany, Switzerland and Austria have just given the go-ahead to the placing on the market of a test called Prenatest which is able to detect, easily and efficiently, trisomy 21 during pregnancy. This has caused an outcry, particularly among organisations representing people with disabilities. Does the Commission not think that a positive screening result for Down syndrome would increase the number of abortions, or does it think that this would be a way for families to make informed decisions?

    The Commission does not intervene in the assessment procedure. In both cases, the Member State concerned has to follow a specific procedure under the control of the Commission. The Commission is not in a position to reply to the question of whether this test will have any impact on the number of abortions. Many Member States continue to dump huge quantities of municipal waste, which is the worst solution to waste management, even though there are other preferable alternatives that are eligible for funding from the Structural Funds.

    The massive use of landfill results in the systematic under-utilisation of preferable waste management solutions such as reuse and recycling. Over what period of time will the roadmaps that will be submitted to the Member States be drawn up? The roadmaps are designed as a compliance promotion tool. They do not foresee penalties. Objet: Suspicion autour de l'entreprise Huawei. According to experts, the flaws in question allow third parties to gain control of the terminals that are connected via the Internet.

    Clearly, Huawei is not prepared to be transparent about this. Regrettably the supplier has no contact point that can be notified about vulnerabilities that have emerged and the lack of security warning systems or provide information about what firmware updates actually correct. If there is to be an investigation, will the facts set out above be taken into account or are they already being taken into account?

    This is a matter of significant worry and it is important that contractors in Europe pay due regard to the security in their supplying of components. Moreover, the Commission does not have investigative and enforcement powers in relation to IT security vulnerabilities. This is a matter which falls in the exclusive responsibility of the Member States. Network and information security is not regulated at EU level. Given that a high level of security can only be ensured if all the actors in the value chain embrace a security culture, the strategy would include actions specifically dedicated to the security of the supply chain in the ICT sector, including design and production.

Does the Commission intend to review subsidies that are harmful for water resources and the granting of EU funds to the water sector as well as water-intensive activities? Will the Commission back Parliament in its wish for compulsory metering of water use in all sectors and for all users? The Commission will monitor via the Member States' follow-up to country-specific recommendations in this area.

    The Commission has also launched studies to analyse subsidies that lead to inefficient use of resources, including water, and promotes exchanges of best practices on EHS reform. The Commission ensures that granting of funds takes place in full respect of EU legislation including on environmental protection. There are reports that the credit card company Visa plans to introduce multilateral interchange fees. Fees are charged for cross-border transactions, but also for domestic transactions in some countries, such as Belgium, Italy and Luxembourg.

    Banks pass on the cost of the fees to traders. Would the fees imposed by Visa not represent an obstacle to competition between banks and, therefore, a breach of the relevant EU rules? The Commission has been investigating MIFs for card payments for a long time. It was found that such arrangements indirectly lead to increased retail prices and MasterCard had not demonstrated that such fees generated efficiencies that were passed on to consumers. MasterCard has appealed against the judgment of the General Court and the appeal is now before the European Court of Justice.

    Ai passeggeri vengono fornite informazioni vaghe; in teoria la compagnia dovrebbe avvertire tutti i passeggeri su ritardi, cancellazioni o eventuali alternative ma non ce la fa ad informare tutti. I diritti del viaggiatore sono ugualmente importanti in tutti i modi di trasporto. Passengers are receiving only vague information; theoretically the company should notify all passengers of any delays, flight cancellations and possible alternatives, but it is failing to do so. Moreover, it is not easy to find spare seats through other airlines in August. In the light of the foregoing, does the Commission believe that it is acceptable, within the European Union, for thousands of travellers — including women, elderly people and children — to be obliged, through no fault of their own, to camp out at airports?

    What action does the Commission intend to take to prevent such a situation from arising again and to tighten up the rules on assistance and compensation in the event of flights being delayed or cancelled, or luggage being delayed, as advocated recently by Parliament in a resolution calling for all travellers to be accorded equitable treatment and fuller rights? About this book Introduction Queer Italia gathers essays on Italian literature and film, medieval to modern. The volume's chronological organization reflects its intention to define a queer tradition in Italian culture.

    While fully cognizant of the theoretical risks inherent in trans-historicizing sexuality, the contributors to this volume share an interest in probing the multi-form dynamics of sexual desires in Italian texts through the centuries. The volume aims not to promote the mistaken notion of a single homosexuality through history. Rather, these essays together upset and undo the equally misguided assumption of an omnipresent heterosexuality through time by uncovering the various, complex workings of desire in texts from all periods.
