Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly recommends Inclusion of Humanists in Intercultural Dialogue
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe has recommended the 47 governments in the Council to “promote a genuine partnership for democracy and human rights between the Council of Europe, the religious institutions and humanist and non-religious organisations”. To this end they should “establish . . . a place for dialogue, a workspace between the Council of Europe and high-level representatives of religions and of non-denominational organisations, in order to place existing relations on a stable and formally recognised platform”.
The move came after a debate on a report from the Culture, Science and Education committee. You can read the Council of Europe’s own report on the debate and the full debate is here and continues here. The EHF had contributed to the deliberations of the Culture committee, as reported on this website.
