Webinar on the Revised European Social Charter: what use for what impact? Advancing the implementation of socio-economic rights by making better use of the monitoring procedures of the European Social Charter - 29 March 2022
Webinar on the monitoring procedures of the European Social Charter - 14 June 2022
The Action for Social Rights Committee of the Conference of INGOs, in partnership with the Department of Social Rights of the Council of Europe, has organised a webinar on the monitoring procedures of the European Social Charter and in particular on the use of the collective complaints procedure as a means of advancing the implementation of socio-economic rights at national level.
The objective of the webinar was to provide non-governmental organisations with information about the use of the procedure and help to strengthen their capacity to submit collective complaints under the Charter. In addition, the session aimed at highlighting the key role of non-governmental organisation in the application of the monitoring procedures of the European Social Charter to better protect social rights at the pan-European level, in particular of vulnerable groups in countries that have ratified the Protocol.
All the documents and the presentations, including the opening speech by the President of the Conference of INGOs are available on the dedicated web page of the Social Rights Department.
Following the decision of the Committee of Ministers on 16 March 2022 the Russian Federation is no longer a member of the Council of Europe. The website will be updated as soon as possible to take account of this development.
