ABOUT ME

I am a Socialist MEP and Professor at the Faculty of Psychology at the University of Valencia. Professionally, I have dedicated myself to research applied to the development of European public policies, especially in the social and health area.

The Disability Intergroup of the European Parliament is an informal grouping of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) from all nationalities and most political groups who are interested in promoting the disability policy in their work at the European Parliament as well as at the national level.

CHILDREN´S RIGHTS

It is a cross-party, cross-national group of committed MEPs, who will work together with child-focused organisations to keep children’s rights on top of the EU agenda. The aim of the Intergroup is to promote children’s rights and ensure that the best interest of the child is taken into account in EU internal and external action.

INTERGROUP “THE NEW GREEN DEAL”

In order to facilitate the debate and progress in the fight against climate change, Members of the European Parliament and representatives of civil society organisations have joined forces through this Intergroup on the “New Green Deal” to face the continuous environmental degradation in a lasting, sustainable, and social way, advocating for a just transition of change.

INTERGROUP TRADE UNIONS

This Intergroup, made up of MEPs from all Member States, and trade unions, aims at facilitating the debate between Members of the European Parliament and workers’ representatives throughout Europe, in order to promote a social Europe based on justice, the protection of workers’ right and the welfare of citizens.
