Thematic Co-ordinators are informal working structures of the Ministers' Deputies and have no decision-making power. They prepare decisions for the Committee of Ministers (CM) for adoption, ideally without debate.

Thematic Co-ordinators ("TC") are appointed by the CM to follow certain areas of importance to the Organisation.

The work of Thematic Co-ordinators is coordinated with that of the CM. In particular:

  • all TCs inform the CM of their plans (at least once a year);
  • all TCs keep the CM regularly informed of their activities and seek its guidance, as appropriate.

There is currently one Thematic Co-ordinator.

The documents of former Thematic Co-ordinators may be consulted via the search tool by typing the Co-ordinator's title or acronym in the "Corporate author" field.
