of the Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination, Ms Athina Kyriakidou,

to empower Muslim women to overcome multiple discrimination and
to reconcile their Muslim and European identity. The committee fully
supports the draft resolution proposed.
While in agreement with the thrust of the draft resolution
tabled by the Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination, the
Committee on Culture, Science, Education and Media wishes to further
develop specific recommendations with regard to “integration policies
and the promotion of respect” and proposes the following amendments.
