63rd meeting of the CAHDI, Bucharest, 22-23 September 2022

In a political climate which encourages interdependence between states, international law is constantly developing, and is increasingly becoming a key factor in the organisation of inter-state relations. The Council of Europe is accordingly working to co-ordinate its member states' activities in this field.

The Council of Europe does it through its Committee of Legal Advisers on Public International Law (CAHDI), an intergovernmental committee which brings together the legal advisers of the Ministries of foreign affairs of the member States of the Council of Europe as well as of a significant number of observer States and Organisations.

In this site you will be able to find out about the CAHDI, its structure, composition, functioning, as well as its activities including adopted texts, publications and unrestricted working documents.

Three databases containing information about the practice of Council of Europe member and observer states in various fields of public international law can be consulted on the site. Users can search for and consult information concerning "Immunities of States and international organisations", "Organisation and functions of the Office of the Legal Adviser in the Ministry for Foreign Affairs" and "Implementation of UN sanctions".
