Vienna Summit

Austria Austria

The Council of Europe gathered a new momentum in the 90s as countries that had once been members of the Soviet Union took on new constitutions that embraced concepts of human rights, democracy and the rule of law. The Vienna Summit was the first to bring together country leaders to set new directions for the organisation as it grew and spread its influence both geographically in terms of adapting to new challenges and changed situations worldwide.
