“Demography is destiny” said the sociologist Auguste Comte: the basic idea is that population trends and distributions determine the future of a country or region. Recently, my colleague Dubravka Suica, Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for demography and democracy, provided us with an analysis of the foreseeable consequences of the demographic changes underway in Europe and globally. This work deserves our full attention, because this subject is both central to the Union's internal affairs and for its place in the world.

We need to build a common strategic culture in Europe. If we agree more on how we see the world and the challenges it contains, it will be easier to agree on what to do about them. Given our different histories, this will take time. It requires many discussions among all involved in the shaping of Europe’s foreign policy, both in Brussels and capitals. We need to understand where each of us is coming from; what worries people and why; but also what we have in common.

Torture denies the dignity of the human being. Its victims suffer both visible and invisible wounds. And this is still the horrifying reality today. On International Day in support of Victims of Torture, EU High Representative Josep Borrrell states “At a time when the world is joining efforts to overcome the coronavirus pandemic, human rights must remain at the core of our battle. On this day, we give a voice to the hundreds of thousands of people who have been victims of torture and those who are still tortured today.”

La tortura niega la dignidad del ser humano. Sus víctimas sufren heridas visibles e invisibles. Y sigue siendo una terrible realidad hoy en día.

En este día, damos voz a los cientos de miles de víctimas de torturas y a quienes aún están siendo torturados hoy.»

La torture nie la dignité de l’être humain. Ses victimes souffrent de blessures visibles et invisibles. Et c'est, aujourd’hui encore, la terrifiante réalité. En cette journée internationale pour le soutien aux victimes de la torture, le haut représentant de l’UE, Josep Borrell, fait la déclaration suivante: «À l’heure où le monde unit ses efforts pour surmonter la pandémie de coronavirus, les droits de l’homme doivent rester au centre de notre combat. En ce jour, nous faisons entendre les voix des centaines de milliers de personnes qui ont été victimes de torture ou qui le sont encore aujourd’hui.»

A tortura nega a dignidade ao ser humano. As vítimas de tortura têm feridas visíveis e feridas invisíveis. E esta realidade horrível continua a existir atualmente.

Na međunarodni dan potpore žrtvama mučenja odajemo počast žrtvama mučenja i drugog okrutnog, nečovječnog i ponižavajućeg postupanja. U trenutku kada se svijet udružuje u borbi protiv pandemije koronavirusa, poštovanje ljudskih prava mora ostati naš prioritetni cilj. Na ovaj dan prisjećamo se stotina tisuća ljudi koji su bili žrtve mučenja i onih koji su i danas izloženi mučenju.
