Welcome to
Europe’s Human Rights Watchdog

This bilingual website – German/English – aims to make the Council of Europe and its work known to a wider public. The articles originate in both an academic and a professional involvement with Europe’s oldest and largest intergovernmental human rights organisation, nicknamed Europe’s human rights watchdog.

The website’s content is continuously updated, endorsed and expanded in accordance with the conviction that «knowledge is the only thing that multiplies when you share it.» (Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach 1830 -1916)
