Algiers, Algeria - In cooperation with the Algerian Constitutional Council and the Directorate General of the Civil Service and the Administrative Reform of Algeria (DGFPRA), the Venice Commission is organising, from 7 to 8 November, the 6th UniDem Med Regional Seminar. The seminar entitled "Women and the labor market" will take place in Algiers (Algeria) and will bring together senior officials and experts from Europe and the Southern the Mediterranean - Algeria, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia. The seminar will discuss issues related to the principles of equality, the constitutional and legal framework and good practices in the area of women's empowerment in the civil service and in the economic sector.

The project aims to strengthen the legal capacity of senior officials in areas related to good governance, the rule of law and human rights, as well as to strengthen the links between the public administrations of the region.

Covid-19 pandemic -
Emergency powers -
 What standards?


During the current Covid-19 pandemic, national governments are taking exceptional measures to slow down the spread of the virus. On numerous occasions, the Venice Commission examined the limits of such emergency powers. The Commission has consistently underlined that State security and public safety can only be effectively guaranteed in a democracy which fully respects the rule of law. Even in genuine cases of emergency situations, the rule of law must prevail.
