Workshop 3: Europe in the world: the value added of the Council of Europe to the European and universal Communities

Can a "Europe of values" serve as a model for other continents?

“10) Our Organisation, determined to contribute to the European architecture and to the continent’s stability and security, will intensify its co-operation with other international organisations accordingly. We welcome the progress already made to this end since the Warsaw Summit, particularly with respect to the European Union. The Memorandum of Understanding between the two organisations gave new impetus to the partnership and political dialogue with the European Union, and its implementation must be pursued. This search for synergies with other international actors has also led to closer co-operation with the OSCE and the United Nations. We can only encourage these efforts.” Declaration of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, Madrid, 12 May 2009
