The beginning of the twenty-first century has seen a resurgence of terrorist attacks on a scale previously unimaginable. In response, the Council of Europe has examined key areas in which it could contribute to the international community’s efforts in the fight against terrorism and identified the protection of witnesses and collaborators of justice as one of its priorities.
In order to combat terrorism, states often rely on the testimony of people who are closely connected to terrorist groups and who are more vulnerable than others to the use of intimidation against them or against people close to them. This may endanger the success of prosecutions often based on long and complicated investigations. Strengthening international co-operation in this field is also a useful means to ensure the protection of those persons whose protection would prove difficult on a merely national basis, given the conditions in the country where they are located.
The Council of Europe has extensive experience in this area, based on existing European conventions and other standards.
This publication contains the recently adopted standards in this field as well as a survey of national laws and practice in Council of Europe member and observer states together with an analytical report.
Quels sont les droits des personnes détenues par les Etats-Unis sur la base de Guantánamo Bay? Quelle est la légalité de leur détention? Faut-il s'interroger sur un développement des conventions de Genève et une évolution du droit international ?
L’Assemblée parlementaire, et à travers elle les 47 Etats membres du Conseil de l'Europe, a parlé d'une seule voix, dénonçant la violation flagrante des droits de l'homme et demandant la fermeture du centre de détention de Guantánamo.
Ce livre présente l'ensemble des arguments exposés par l'Assemblée, ainsi que l'étude de la Commission de Venise, qui apporte son expertise juridique quant à la légalité de la détention de personnes par les Etats-Unis à Guantánamo Bay et à la nécessité d'un développement éventuel du droit international.
What are the rights of the prisoners held by the United States at the base in Guantánamo Bay? Is their imprisonment lawful? Should we be thinking about strengthening the Geneva Conventions and changing international law?
The Parliamentary Assembly, and hence the 47 member states of the Council of Europe, has spoken with one voice, condemning this flagrant violation of human rights and demanding the closure of the Guantánamo detention centre.
This book contains all the Assembly's arguments, along with the study by the Venice Commission, which brings all its legal expertise to bear in considering whether the detention of people by the United States in Guantánamo Bay is lawful and if there is a need for a change in international law.
In the final declaration of their 8th conference, the European ministers responsible for migration affairs committed to promoting and protecting the human rights of migrants, with special attention to gender equality and the rights of women; to strengthening dialogue and co-operation between receiving, transit and origin countries, particularly within Europe; and to promoting coherence at all levels (international, national, regional and local) between migration, development and integration policies.
The ministers also agreed to manage economic migration with a view to promoting economic and social progress in receiving, transit and origin countries; to enhance social cohesion by improving the integration of migrants and persons of immigrant background and the re-integration of migrants who return to their countries of origin; and to strengthen the contribution of migrants and persons of immigrant background to development in receiving and origin countries and their involvement in co-development programmes.
The right to life is the prime individual right in treaty and constitution systems of fundamental rights. The whole approach to protecting this right has changed considerably with scientific and medical advances. Whereas traditionally the concern was to protect life from all threats, today there is the additional very prominent issue of human — scientific and medical — intervention in the life-giving process in such forms as abortion, medically assisted procreation, embryo research, cloning and euthanasia.
This comparative analysis of the case law of Europe's constitutional courts and the Council of Europe's European Court of Human Rights examines the nature and scope of the right to life in order to determine whether there is a common legal approach to the question in Europe.
Has Europe become ”a happy hunting ground” for foreign security services? Is it acceptable, in the name of common security and the fight against terrorism, for citizens to be kidnapped, transferred and arbitrarily detained in secret prisons, and then tortured, on the mere suspicion or terrorism and in defiance of international law?
Two investigations by the Parliamentary Assembly into the High Value Detainee (HVD) programme set up by the US Administration after the attacks of 11 September have revealed the global “spider’s web” spun by the CIA. The so-called “extraordinary renditions” programme has resulted in numerous serious human rights violations. It has only been able to function through the co-operation of certain Council of Europe member states, despite the fact that they are bound by European human rights Conventions.
Furthermore, the European Commission for Democracy through Law has included its expert legal opinion on general international legal principles and the responsibility that Council of Europe member states would incur if they, either deliberately or by negligence, failed to meet their obligations.
This book, with its revealing eye-witness accounts, gives credence to the Council of Europe’s position that if measures to combat terrorism are to be effective in the long term, they must respect human rights and the rule of law.
