About the Venice Commission About the Venice Commission

The European Commission for Democracy through Law - better known as the Venice Commission as it meets in Venice - is the Council of Europe's advisory body on constitutional matters.

The role of the Venice Commission is to provide legal advice to its member states and, in particular, to help states wishing to bring their legal and institutional structures into line with European standards and international experience in the fields of democracy, human rights and the rule of law.

The Commission works in three areas:

  • democratic institutions and fundamental rights
  • constitutional justice and ordinary justice
  • elections, referendums and political parties.

 The Commission shares the standards and best practices adopted within the countries of the Council of Europe beyond its borders notably in neighbouring countries.
