Chapter Summary

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (set up in 1949) is the oldest international parliamentary assembly with a pluralistic composition of democratically elected members of parliament. It is, together with the Committee of Ministers, a statutory organ of the Council of Europe. The Assembly may make recommendations to the Committee of Ministers upon any matter within the aim and scope of the Council of Europe. It is also regularly seized for opinion by the Committee of Ministers, for instance on draft conventions. The monitoring procedure may be opened at the request of the Monitoring Committee, other Assembly committees, least ten members of the Assembly, and the Bureau of the Assembly. The Assembly has constantly stressed the comprehensive and non-discriminative character of its procedure.
