What is Club Europe?

 

Europeans who get involved!

 
As part of its aim to get in touch with the citizens of Europe, CIIE created in 2003 "Club Europe". With M. Hans-Christian Krüger, former Deputy Secretary General of the Council of Europe, as its patron, this club brings together committed Europeans willing to share their knowledge with the citizens of Alsace.

Given the task of spreading information on Europe, these volunteers work in all parts of Alsace and offer dynamic, interactive presentations on key issues affecting the EU. Senior citizens, teachers, students and professionals all contribute to the diverse network of people dedicated to informing the public of Europe – past, present and future – at schools, universities, associations and community groups. With over one hundred members, Club Europe is involved in various activities.

With over sixty members, Club Europe is involved in various activities and has realized more than 3 000 presentations.

      International Day in Support of Victims of Torture

    • Torture seeks to annihilate the victim’s personality and denies the inherent dignity of the human being. The United Nations has condemned torture from the outset as one of the vilest acts perpetrated by human beings on their fellow human beings.

      Torture is a crime under international law. According to all relevant instruments, it is absolutely prohibited and cannot be justified under any circumstances. This prohibition forms part of customary international law, which means that it is binding on every member of the international community, regardless of whether a State has ratified international treaties in which torture is expressly prohibited. The systematic or widespread practice of torture constitutes a crime against humanity.

      On 12 December 1997, by resolution 52/149, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 26 June the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, with a view to the total eradication of torture and the effective functioning of the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, (resolution 39/46), annex, which entered into force on 26 June 1987.
