    Collection of recommendations, resolutions and declarations of the Committee of Ministers concerning human rights
    1949-87
    PREFACE

    The Committee of Ministers, as the executive organ of the Council of Europe, is the forum through which the work of the Council of Europe is determined.

    The Committee of Ministers exercises its functions partly through the adoption of Conventions and Agreements (ie. international treaties binding on the states that ratify them) and partly through Recommendations, Resolutions and Declarations. The latter texts contain proposals for action to be taken by the governments of member states or policy statements.

    This publication seeks to gather together, in one volume, the Recommendations, Resolutions and Declarations of the Committee of Ministers which are the most relevant to the field of human rights. Together they provide a joint expression of the opinion of member States on matters which have a bearing on human rights, dating from the foundation of the Council of Europe in 1949 through to 31 December 1987.

    EXPLANATORY NOTE The recommendations of the Committee of Ministers were all originally adopted in the form of Resolutions. It will be seen from the table of contents that in 1979 the Committee of Ministers created a distinction between Recommendations and Resolutions.

    The effect of this distinction is that Recommendations are adopted in circumstances where proposals are made for action to be taken by member states (ie. Teaching and learning about human rights in schools, Recommendation R (85) 7), whereas Resolutions are adopted when the subject matter directly affects the work, or the functioning of the Council of Europe (ie. Construction of a new human rights building, Resolution (86) 4, or Award of the European Human Rights Prize, Resolution (86) 20).

    Declarations usually contain policy statements which may include proposals for action.

    Resolutions adopted by the Committee of Ministers in application of Articles 32 and 54 of the European Convention on Human Rights have not been reproduced in this publication as they are collected together in a separate Council of Europe publication.
