The Council of Europe Offices (CoE Offices) are set up by decision of the Committee of Ministers. Their goals and way of functioning vary according to the specific mandate given to them. However, they all serve to facilitate, maintain and strengthen working relations between the Council of Europe and the national authorities (government and parliament), representatives of civil society, political parties, the media and members of the international community.
Their activities allow the Council of Europe to influence legislative and other reforms, to provide expertise in the Organisation's fields of competence and to develop effective training programmes. The CoE Offices co-ordinate initiatives with the UN, the OSCE and EU.
