22/06/2022 | 11:40:29 Madam President, Madam Rabbi of the Great Synagogue of Stockholm, Dear Colleagues, The report of our colleague Ms Petra BAYR underlines how much the prevention and the fight against antisemitism are a continuous fight that we, unfortunately, have to carry on. It gives us alarming figures on antisemitism in Europe. 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.

The Treaty of Lisbon was supposed to mark a major step forward, by expressly providing for the accession of the European Union to the European Convention on Human Rights. However, more than twelve years after the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon on 1 December... 27/01/2022 | 11:19:48 Mr President, dear colleagues, First of all, I would like to congratulate our colleague Mr André GATTOLIN for this excellent report, which reminds us how common the practice of enforced disappearances is in the member states of the Council of Europe. I regret that the member states of our organisation do not give more importance to this problem. Indeed, only 21 member states of the Council of Europe have ratified the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced...
