Seminar on riot control for the police 

In the framework of the EU/CoE Joint Programme “Reinforcing the Fight against Ill-treatment and Impunity”, the Council of Europe is organising two-day seminar on ‘riot control’ for representatives of different police units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and students of the Police Academy. The seminar will take place on 30-31 May and aims to acquaint participants with a human rights-based approach to riot control, raising their awareness of good practices and international standards for containing violent demonstrations, and their ability to apply these standards. The seminar will be conducted by Council of Europe experts.
