The Council of Europe is and must remain at the forefront of this issue. Indeed, the are still far too many cases of violence against women. A study conducted by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights indicates that in the EU, slightly more than one woman in five has suffered... 25/01/2023 | 12:21:22 Madam President, Dear colleagues, There are a range of contact tracing applications available for mobile phones, many of them which may be installed free of charge.

I can only corroborate these figures in the light of the situation in France, where the number of antisemitic incidents has increased significantly in recent years. According to an... 21/06/2022 | 11:18:52 Miste President, Dear Colleagues, I would like to thank our colleague Mr Bogdan KLICH for this report which underlines the extent to which our States are interdependent for their security and stability, and which points out the challenges that the Council of Europe must face in order to continue to play its role as a democratic watchdog fully, but also to make its contribution to the democratic security of Europe.
