Webinar on Better Cooperation within the Council of Europe Institutions

On 9 May, from 12:00-14:00 (CET) SWPS University, Riga Graduate School of Law and the University of Cologne are organizing a webinar on better cooperation within the Council of Europe Institutions. Professor Konstantsin Dzehtsiarou (University of Liverpool), Dr Aleksandra Gliszczyńska-Grabias (Institute of Legal Studies of the Polish Academy of Science) and Dr Nikos Vogiatzis (University of Essex) will be speaking at the event. The event will be moderated by professor Adam Bodnar (SWPS University). 

This webinar is the third of the ''Road to Reykjavik. Chances and Challenges to the Council of Europe'' webinar series. As the Council of Europe is preparing for the 4th Council of Europe Summit of Heads of State and Government in Reykjavik in May this year, these webinar series discuss some pressing issues facing the Council of Europe. 

Here is a description of the webinar:

''The two meetings of the "Road to Reykjavik" webinar series in anticipation of the Council of Europe’s 4th Summit of Heads of State and Government in Reykjavik so far have focused on the momentous role of the European Court of Human Rights and its potential role in trying to judge Russian crimes in Ukraine. During the third meeting on 9 May from 13:00 – 14:40 (Riga time), we will reflect on the possibilities of deepening cooperation, as well as building a coherent message within the Council of Europe institutions.

As well as attempting to further discuss the challenges that have emerged with the fundamental change in the global political situation and the crisis of the previous security policy, the third webinar is also a follow-up to the issues identified during the two previous meetings. It was during these that voices and questions emerged regarding the deepening of cooperation between specific Council of Europe bodies and institutions.''
