Council of Europe
The Council of Europe is an international organisation that fundamentally seeks to defend and protect democracy, the rule of law and human rights, particularly at a civilian and political level. This is the oldest institution of this nature on our continent and it covers all of the European nations with the sole exception of Belarus. Its headquarters are based in the French city of Strasbourg and its most active body is the European Court of Human Rights.
  • History and Activity of the Council of Europe
    The Council of Europe was set up after the Second World War with the aim of becoming the custodian of democratic values on the continent. One of the main drivers behind the institution at the time was the then British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. Nowadays it carries on this work and has become the leading authority in Europe on this issue.
  • Spain’s priorities in the Council of Europe
    Spain maintains its commitment to the Council of Europe, the pan-European body whose foundations are based on the rule of law. Its main priorities include greater effectiveness of the European Court of Human Rights and support for the process to reform the organisation undertaken by its Secretary-General, Thorbjørn Jagland.
