(Strasbourg) Greco, the Group of States Against Corruption of the Council of Europe, turns 20 and celebrates its anniversary with a high-level conference in Strasbourg today, to take stock of the results achieved “in helping the States improve their ability to prevent and fight corruption, measure the current challenges, and predict new issues”. Then, until 21st, the plenary meeting of Greco will discuss, among other things, the EU’s request to join Greco as an observer. The European Commission for Democracy Through Law will meet in Venice (21-22 June) to deal with the situation of the Republic of Moldova in connection with dissolution of Parliament. Also on these days (17-22 June), Strasburg will be hosting an event about the “right of young people with disabilities to live independently and be part of the community”, by looking at mental health as at a disability-related matter. “Mind the gap” is an event organised by the Youth Department of the Council of Europe, in partnership with the European Network on Independent Living (Enil) and the Euro-Youth Mental Health. A workshop will be held instead in Turin about “Fighting discrimination and hate speech: is interculturalism the solution?” organised by the “Intercultural Cities” programme of the Council of Europe (18-19 June).
