Social security as a human right - The protection afforded by the
European Convention on Human Rights (Human Rights Files No. 23)
(28/08/2007)

There is no mention in the European Convention on Human Rights of rights
in the field of social security. Nevertheless, the Convention does
protect certain of these rights which come into its area of application
and this study sets out to explain how. It also examines recent
developments in the relevant case-law of the European Court of Human
Rights which, as well as affording procedural guarantees, has widened
and strengthened the material protection of specific rights. In
addition, examples are given of measures taken in the member states
following judgments of the Court in cases concerning social security.
This sort of judgment is becoming more common, giving the Convention an
ever-expanding social aspect which has an important impact at national
level.

Co-operation against terrorism between the Council of Europe and its
member states, and the International Criminal Police Organization
(ICPO-Interpol) - Recommendation Rec(2007)1 and explanatory memorandum
(22/08/2007)

Co-operation between law-enforcement authorities is one of the keys to a
successful fight against terrorism. Recommendation Rec(2007)1 of the
Committee of Ministers to member states regarding co-operation against
terrorism between the Council of Europe and its member states, and the
International Criminal Police Organization (ICPO-lnterpol) aims
therefore to strengthen co-operation against terrorism through enhanced
use of ICPO-lnterpol means. Thus, it recommends that governments of
member states use, in accordance with national law, the tools offered by
Interpol against terrorism, namely the Global Police Communications
System I-24/7, the relevant databases and the real-time, operational
support for police services as set out in the appendix to this
recommendation. The Council of Europe's Committee of Experts on
Terrorism (CODEXTER) is entrusted with the task of following-up its
implementation.
