    The Council of Europe Office in Warsaw was established on 14 June 2011. The main task of the new Office is to represent the Council of Europe vis-à-vis other international organisations or institutions in Warsaw, in particular the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (OSCE/ODIHR) and - upon the request of Poland - the Community of Democracies.

    Warsaw is one of four cities (together with Vienna, Geneva and Brussels)

    where the Council of Europe has field offices in charge of liaison with partner organisations or international institutions.  

     

    Establishment of the Council of Europe Office in Warsaw is part of a reform of the Council of Europe. It aims to rationalise the Organisation's presence in the field and to adjust external structures to the CoE's new priorities.
