Presentation of the 2023 Annual Report of Activities


Strasbourg - The President of the Venice Commission, Ms Claire Bazy Malaurie, presented the 2023 Annual Report of Activities of the Commission to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe.

President Bazy Malaurie noted that in 2023 the Venice Commission adopted 47 Opinions, a figure in line with the increase in the three previous years. Thus, the Commission continued to provide legal advice to its member States helping them bring their legal and institutional structures into line with European standards in the fields of democracy, human rights and the rule of law. In 2023 the Commission adopted in particular twelve Follow-up Opinions which rendered more visible the impact which the Commission’s recommendations actually produce. There was substantial media interest and references to the Commission in the press in Council of Europe member states.

The presentation was followed by an exchange of views with the Ambassadors of the member and observer States of the Council of Europe.
