EU Transport Commissioner: 'We are preparing legislation on drones'
Date created :
Violeta Bulc, the EU Commissioner for Transport, hails from Slovenia and entered politics just a month or so before being nominated as Commissioner back in 2014. This month, Slovenia made amendments to the Aliens Act that have outraged the Council of Europe and NGOs like Amnesty International, who say that the plans will strip refugees and asylum seekers of their rights.
Violeta Bulc tells us why these measures were put in place and what exactly they mean. She also comments on the rise of anti-establishment parties in the EU and how they can best be challenged.
Finally, the EU Transport Commissioner describes a future where flying objects - drones - are all around us. The EU, she says, is currently working on defining the rules on where these drones can fly.
