A Monegasque delegation* took part in an exchange of views on cooperation between the Council of Europe and the United Nations on human rights. The session was held in Strasbourg on 15 February.

Organised annually as part of the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers,** this exchange aims to give experts from capitals an opportunity to discuss ways to improve strategic collaboration and synergy between the Strasbourg-based Council and UN bodies on a range of topics of mutual interest. It was attended by Ambassador Vojislav Šuc, President of the UN Human Rights Council, Renate Winter, President of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, and Tomáš Boček, Special Representative of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe on Migration and Refugees.

A thematic discussion on protecting migrant children gave the Principality an opportunity to highlight its international commitment to the rights of children, on both a political and financial level, particularly in the context of the migration crisis.

*:The delegation comprised H.E. Mr Rémi Mortier, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Monaco to the Council of Europe, Ms Marie-Noëlle Albertini, Diplomatic Advisor to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, and Ms Chrystel Chanteloube, Deputy Permanent Representative.
