The Council of Europe is the continent’s leading human rights organisation

The Council of Europe promotes human rights through international conventions, such as the European Convention on Human Rights and the Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence. The Council of Europe monitors the observance of human rights in its member states. 

The Council of Europe was established in 1949

The Council of Europe has 46 member states. It is the oldest political cooperation organisation in Europe. Russia, Belarus and Kosovo are the only European countries that are not members of the Council of Europe.
