There is an entrenchment across Europe of domestic laws, policies and practices that run counter to the foundational principles of the Council of Europe as an international organisation that protects and nourishes the rule of law, human rights and democracy.

This panel will discuss the responses to the decay of the rule of law and human rights protections by five Council of Europe institutions: the European Court of Human Rights, the Venice Commission, the Parliamentary Assembly, the Committee of Ministers and the Secretary General of the Council of Europe. How have these Council of Europe institutions responded to the decay of human rights and rule of law protections in Europe? What influence has the overall political context in Europe had on such responses? Have the Council of Europe institutions been able to insulate themselves from political constraints when acting as guardians of Council of Europe values?
