Thursday 19 Januray 2017 – Breakfast with Wojciech Sawicki, Secretary General of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe


On Thursday 19 January, Mr. Wojciech Sawicki, Secretary General of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), intervened during our traditional breakfast to present the priorities of the Parliamentary Assembly to the Council of Europe for 2017. Mr Sawicki outlined the different challenges the PACE is facing with, focusing particular attention on the backsliding of rights and rule of law in Turkey.

This event was organised in partnership with the Amicale du Conseil de l’Europe and represented an occasion for MEPs and members of the diplomatic corps to exchange on topics that interest the activity of both the European Parliament and the Council of Europe.

This event is, indeed, part of broader effort that the APE is undertaking to reduce the distances between the members of these two institutions.
