Monaco at Strasbourg meeting on Human Rights

Echange de vues entre experts Conseil de l'Europe-Nations Unies

A Monegasque delegation took part in an exchange of views on co-operation between the Council of Europe and the United Nations (UN) in the field of human rights, held in Strasbourg on Thursday, February 15.

Held every year within the framework of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, the meeting aims to enable various experts to discuss ways to improve strategic collaboration and synergies between the Strasbourg Organisation and UN bodies on the many topics of common interest.

A discussion on the protection of migrant children gave the Principality the opportunity to highlight its international commitment, both political and financial, to the rights of the child, particularly in the context of the migration crisis.

The Committee of Ministers is the statutory decision-making body of the Council of Europe, composed of the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the Member States. The latter meet once a year at ministerial level and their Delegates (Permanent Representatives to the Council of Europe) sit once a week.
