Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights: Annual Activity Report 2016

The Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights released an activity report for 2016 (pdf) in April 2017.

Launching the report, Nils Mui┼żnieks said:

‘2016 will likely be remembered as a critical turning point for human rights in Europe. We will either see it as a low point from which European countries, individually and collectively, bounced back to reaffirm their commitment to human rights, or it will mark the beginning of the end of the European human rights system and European integration.’
