The Council of Europe will participate in the 2017 edition of the Brussels Book Fair, which will be held from 9 to 13 March this year (Tour & Taxis). This fair is a major cultural event since more than 40 years, welcoming more than 70.000 visitors every year.
In addition to its activities and its most recent publications, the Council of Europe will propose to a young school audience a quiz containing a selection of questions from its educational game on Europe’s shared values: freedom of expression, a fair justice system, gender equality, abolition of death penalty, free elections, and diversity / non-discrimination.
Finally, the Council of Europe organises on Thursday 9 March from 4 to 5 pm on the “Place de l’Europe” (Hall 1 of the Fair) a meeting debate on the positive impact of the European Convention on Human Rights in states parties, with Françoise Tulkens, former Vice-President of the European Court of Human Rights, Pierre-Yves Le Borgn’, member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, and Anne Jonlet, head of the EU Liaison Office of the Bar Council (OBFG).
