|EU Parliament Building in Strasbourg
The historic city of Strasbourg, Leicester‚€™s twin since 1960,
is often called the ‚€˜Crossroads of Europe‚€™. Situated in the Alsace region in Eastern France, it
is a thriving centre of culture and tourism. It is the capital of Alsace, famous for its gastronomy, vineyards and breweries.
Strasbourg is on the Rhine, which here separates France and Germany. With a famous 12th Century Gothic cathedral and a delightfully
picturesque riverside quarter known as Petite France, it is the seat of the European Parliament and of the Court of Human
Rights. The city has a state-of-the-art tram system and its own airport. Link to Strasbourg website

|EU - Council of Europe Strasbourg
The Council of Europe is the continent's oldest political organisation, founded in 1949.
The Council of Europe's Vienna Summit in October 1993
set out new political aims. The Heads of State and Government cast the Council of Europe as the guardian of democratic security
- founded on human rights, democracy and the rule of law. Democratic security is an essential complement to military security,
and is a pre-requisite for the continent's stability and peace.
During the Second Summit in Strasbourg in October 1997, the Heads of State and Government adopted an action
plan to strengthen the Council of Europe's work in four areas: democracy and human rights, social cohesion, the security of
citizens and democratic values and cultural diversity.
The Council of Europe's third Summit of Heads of State and Government, held in Warsaw on 16 and 17 May 2005,
concluded by adopting a political declaration and an action plan laying down the principal tasks of the Council of Europe
in the coming years:
- promoting the common fundamental values of human rights, the rule of law and democracy;
the security of European citizens, in particular by combating terrorism, organised crime and trafficking in human beings;
- fostering co-operation with other international and European organisations.
Today, the Organisation continues to grow while at the same time increasing its monitoring to ensure that
all its members respect the obligations and commitments they entered into when they joined.
