The Council of Europe

 

MUNFrance is very proud to announce its partnership with the Council of Europe, which will be hosting our opening ceremony !

 

 

The Council of Europe is the continent's leading human rights organisation. It comprises 47 member states, 28 of which are members of the European Union. All council of Europe member states have signed up to the European Conventionon Human Rights, a treaty designed to protect human rights, democracy and the rule of law.

 

The European Court of Human Rights oversees the implementation of the Convention in the member states. Individuals can bring complaints of human rights violations to the Strasbourg Court once all possiblities of appeal have been exhausted in the member state concerned. The European Union is preaparing to sign the European Convention on Human Rights, thus creating a common European legal space for over 820 million citizens.
