The cooperation between the EU and the Council of Europe is based on our shared fundamental values: human rights, democracy and the rule of law. The EU works closely with and supports the Council of Europe, as part of its efforts to promote worldwide effective multilateralism, as well as uphold and extend a rules-based international order.
The EU and the Council of Europe have, in pursuit of shared goals with regard to the protection of democracy, respect for human rights, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law, developed a dynamic, vibrant and highly efficient co-operation tool known as the joint programmes. The EU provides most of the funding to the joint programmes while the Council of Europe is responsible for their implementation.
