Council of Europe

Administrative History:

Following a poster collection on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the European Cultural Convention in 2005, the Central Archives decided to collect all posters created from the Council of Europe since its beginning.

The collection includes posters with all themes that cover the wide range of activities of the Council of Europe: human rights, justice, art exhibitions, cultural and natural heritage, environmental protection, education, citizenship, human resources management. Often, the posters have been published on the occasion of anniversaries, conferences, campaigns and other events, promoting the visibility of the Organisation and its activities.

Conditions governing access:

The posters are public information. Like all other Council of Europe publications their reproduction requires prior authorisation by the Council of Europe's Directorate of Communication.

Finding aids:

The collection is indexed in WebCAT, the online catalogue of the Archives. It is planned to make the digitised images of the posters available soon.
