The Council of Europe’s primary goal is to promote the unity of the continent and guarantee the dignity of its citizens by ensuring respect for their fundamental values: human rights, pluralist democracy and the rule of law. The Council of Europe works on solutions to major problems facing European society, like racism, intolerance, discrimination against minorities, inequality, social exclusion, drug abuse, corruption and organised crime.
The programme and policy of the Council of Europe youth sector are developed in close co-operation with governmental and non-governmental partners and deal with youth participation, social cohesion, intercultural dialogue and human rights education.
