28 February – The Council of Europe – Preventing Human Rights Abuses

The European Convention on Human Rights is called the Council of Europe’s ”crown jewel”. It guarantees rights ranging from liberty and security to the freedom of expression and the right to a fair trial. Although all members of the Council of Europe has signed the convention, it is regularly violated by countries such as Russia and Turkey and lately also by a number of European countries. What can the Council of Europe do to prevent further violations of human rights?
