The clip shows how the Office of the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights works. Through interviews with the first two Commissioners, Alvaro Gil-Robles and Thomas Hammarberg, and images filmed during country visits, the clip highlights the main human rights concerns in Europe, including: discrimination, racism, migration, internally displaced persons, refugees, asylum-seekers, minorities, the conditions in prisons and the fight against terrorism.
The Commissioner for Human Rights is an independent, non-judicial institution within the Council of Europe, mandated to promote awareness of, and respect for, human rights in the 47 member states of the Organisation. Elected by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the present Commissioner, Mr Thomas Hammarberg, took up his function on 1 April 2006.
