The Council of Europe: structure, aims, achievements by Council of Europe ( Book )
67 editions published between 1957 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Council of Europe has adopted this new Convention to increase the effectiveness of existing international texts on the fight against terrorism. It aims to strengthen member states' efforts to prevent terrorism and sets out two ways to achieve this objective: by establishing as criminal offenses certain acts that may lead to the commission of terrorist offenses, namely: public provocation, recruitment and training, and by reinforcing co-operation on prevention both internally (national prevention policies), and internationally (modification of existing extradition and mutual assistance arrangements and additional means). The Convention contains a provision on the protection and compensation of victims of terrorism. A consultation process is planned to ensure effective implementation and follow up.--Publisher's description

5 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The law of the Council of Europe Convention on Human Rights relating to aliens has developed significantly over recent time. In 25 years the number of contracting states has doubled and the scope of rights and freedoms guaranteed under the convention has broadened with the adoption of new protocols. At the same time, important demographic changes have taken place. The growing integration of the states of the European Union has created greater mobility for its citizens; and political and economic pressures have given rise to an increasing number of refugees and asylum-seekers from Europe and beyond.--Publisher's description

The Challenge of human rights education ( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This series is the result of a collaboration between the Council of Europe and Cassell. It comprises books on a wide range of educational material drawn largely from seminars and research which have been initiated and sponsored by the Council of Europe. The aims of the council are: to work for greater European unity; to uphold the principles of parliamentary democracy and human rights; to improve living conditions and promote human values; it also seeks to develop the common features shared by all the peoples of Europe: the European dimension to their lives. Education can make a vital contribution to the protection and promotion of human rights, making young people aware of their common heritage of political ideals and traditions, and equipping them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that they will need if they are to play an active part in the operation and development of our democratic institutions. The Council of Europe has worked closely with teachers, specialists and non-governmental organizations to define how education systems, especially schools, can help to promote an active commitment to human rights and the principles of pluralistic democracy. This book addresses the keen and rapidly growing interest across Western and Eastern Europe in education for democratic values. It is written by some of the leading educationalists in Europe and North American, many of whom have been closely involved in the council of Europe's work in human rights education

Child sexual abuse in Europe ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Child sexual abuse and exploitation are significant problems in Europe today and it is estimated that between 10% and 20% of children are sexually assaulted during their childhood. There are many forms of abuse including incest, prostitution, pornography, date rape, peer sexual violence and institutional sexual abuse, and all are considered abnormal sexual behaviour. Since the 1996 Stockholm World Congress considerable progress has been made in developing measures to combat the sexual abuse and exploitation of children but there is still a long way to go, particularly because the crime usually happens in private and victims are often threatened or sworn to secrecy. Child sexual abuse in Europe offers a pan-European perspective on the issue, drawing on the rapidly growing evidence base and current policy. Individual country case studies highlight the difficulties facing Germany, Poland, Romania and the UK and key issues facing all countries are discussed. What known treatments are there to help prevent perpetrators from reoffending? How are cases dealt with in comparative legal processes? How can children and their families best be helped therapeutically? All of these questions are addressed by the European researchers and practitioners who have contributed to this book, which will be of interest to parents, teachers, social workers and all those who are interested in seeing how children's rights can be protected
