Based in Lisbon, a bridge between Europe and the South, the North-South Centre is an instrument for the multilateral cooperation of the Council of Europe policy towards its neighbouring regions, to facilitate the democratic political transition, help promote good governance and reinforce and enlarge Council of Europe regional action in combating trans-border and global threats.

Since its inception, the North-South Centre has developed a solid network and close partnerships, through its bottom-up approach, with representatives of the quadrilogue in Europe and beyond.
