The Council of Europe is the oldest intergovernmental organization in Europe and brings together the largest number of European countries : 47 Member States representing some 800 million Europeans. While it is totally independent from the European Union, the two entities do collaborate in certain domains. The 28 Member States of the European Union are all members of the Council of Europe. The Council of Europe principally aims to defend human rights and parliamentary democracy. The organization is composed of two bodies : the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly, as well as three institutions: the European Court of Human Rights, the Commissioner for Human Rights and the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities. The Secretary General of the Council of Europe has the overall responsibility for the activities of the organization.

      European Heritage Days

    • How can Europeans be brought to realise that their cultural heritage both unites and differentiates them, and that this heritage is a vehicle for mutual discovery and understanding?

      To take up this triple challenge, the Council of Europe in 1991 launched the European Heritage Days [EHD], an initiative which in 1999 became a joint Council of Europe-European Commission action.

      Throughout Europe during the weekends of September, the European Heritage Days opens up numerous sites and monuments, some normally closed to the public.

      The 49 States party to the Council of Europe Cultural Convention will be actively involved in this initiative, and it is forecast that more than 30 000 sites and monuments participating in the event will have some 20 million visitors.
