Migration and Human Rights

Advisory Group

In accordance with the Migration Framework and with a view to ensuring the coherence and co-ordination of the organisation's activities in the field of migration, asylum and integration the Council of Europe Migration Advisory Group was established. It held its first meeting on 16 april 2012.

The Advisory Group consists of those Council of Europe bodies most involved in migration matters. The Advisory Group should in particular facilitate the exchange of information about relevant activities of different administrative entities and help identify (on the basis of the relevant judgements of the ECtHR, findings of Council of Europe monitoring instruments, recommendations and reports of the Commissioner for Human Rights, Parliamentary Assembly and the Congress) areas and issues where the contribution of the Council of Europe would be useful.
