Poland: Homophobia and the EU's Mild Response

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Poland, Freedom of Speech, Human Rights, International Relations, LGBTQ+

Srdjan Cvijic of The TransAtlantic Assembly writes [1] about the EU's unfairly mild reaction to homophobia and intolerance in Poland: “More importantly, the case of Poland, and the mild reaction of other member states, directly compromise the EU enlargement and foreign policy. How can the EU pretend to demand from the hopeful candidates in Turkey and South Eastern Europe to respect its human rights standards when some of its own Member States (Poland) lag behind in this respect?”
