Message from President of the Confederation Alain Berset on the occasion of Europe Day on 5 May 20232023-05-05 10:45:15
The Council of Europe was founded in 1949 to aid in the reconstruction of Western Europe and promote social and economic progress. It has become a leading pan-European institution that advocates for democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
Switzerland has been a member since May 6, 1963, and joining the council has helped modernize their systems for protecting human rights and the rule of law. The European Convention on Human Rights allows individuals to seek redress before the European Court of Human Rights.
The council is the foremost organization promoting democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. The summit in Reykjavik aims to inject new energy into the council and address significant challenges, including war crimes in Ukraine and democratic resilience.
Switzerland will continue to do its part in strengthening the credibility and relevance of the council this year..
