Council of Europe

The Council of Europe is not an institution of the EU. It is an intergovernmental advisory organization which promotes cooperation between the countries in the area of the protection of human rights, democracy and the rule of law and cultural cooperation. The best known bodies of the Council of Europe are the European Court of Human Rights, which enforces the European Convention on Human Rights, and the European Pharmacopoeia Commission.
The Council of Europe now has 47 Member States, including all EU Member States, and its headquarters is in Strasbourg, France.
The Council of Europe is not controlled by, and should not be confused with, the European Union. Unlike the European Union, the Council of Europe cannot make binding laws.
