Council of Europe Communications

It is widely accepted that democracy promotes peace among nations, reduces the abuse of power and encourages societies to live in harmony. Upholding human rights undeniably fosters democratic security.
This is the main theme of the second annual report by the Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland, “State of Democracy, Human Rights and the Rule of Law in Europe - A shared responsibility for democratic security in Europe”.
It compares democratic practices in European countries identifying judicial weaknesses and media freedom as the major areas of concern. To address them, the report suggests concrete follow-up actions, including training for legal professionals and programmes on the safety of journalists.

Useful tips to listen to the news

• Make sure you have heard the news in your own language before you listen. You could make some notes of the main stories, including any names of people or places.

• Don’t worry about how much you understand. Listen to or watch the report first a few times ‘just for fun’.

• Stop and review as many times as necessary.

• Write a brief summary (one or two sentences) of each story.

• Set yourself a few questions to answer. Then listen again for the answers.

• Make notes of any new vocabulary you think is useful.


• Why not listen to the news with a friend? You can help each other by talking about what you each understand.

• When you feel confident, try listening to the news in English in different accents.
