The Council of Europe Liaison Office to the EU supports all aspects of cooperation between the Council of Europe and the European Union, from high-level political contacts to day-to-day interaction between staff working on issues of common interest.

The office also works together with many other partners based in Brussels, including NGOs, think tanks, national representations, other international organisations and the Belgian authorities.

Linking Brussels and Strasbourg

Ensuring effective management of the office and the two-way flow of information between Brussels and Council of Europe headquarters in Strasbourg are core aspects of the office’s everyday work.
