  • The Council of Europe - being one of the most important standard-setting international organisations in Europe - has adopted 221 conventions, including the Convention for the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms with 14 Protocols.

     

    Many of its conventions are open for accessions by non-Member States and by the European Union while some officially form part of the European Union law.

     

    At present, in the process of the CoE reform efforts are taken to increase further the efficiency of its legal acquis. A comprehensive review of all CoE conventions has been undertaken to this end.
