Dear website users,
Welcome to the new website of the Council of Europeís Directorate General of Human Rights and Rule of Law.
This site has been updated to take account of the restructuring of our Organisation in order to align the content with the 2014-15 priorities adopted by the Committee of Ministers.
Here you will find complete information on our standard-setting and monitoring activities, as well as our on-the-ground co-operation activities with member states and other partner states. These activities are at the heart of the mission of the Council of Europe, as part of the new Europe and at the service of 820 million Europeans.
I hope you find the website interesting and informative.
Philippe Boillat, Director General
