    Exhibitions in the Assembly lobby Retour au sommaire Atteindre l'élement précédent

      Exhibitions in the Assembly lobby
      Decision of the Bureau of the Assembly of 28 June 2019 See document... These rules replace the Bureau's decisions
of 13 January 1997 and 29 April 2005.
      The following rules apply during and outside Assembly part-sessions. However, they do not apply with respect to exhibitions in the Assembly lobby during sessions of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities and to other exhibitions organised in the context of duly authorised events taking place in the Assembly’s hemicycle.
      1. The Assembly lobby is the area just outside the Assembly’s hemicycle (plenary Chamber), composed of eight exhibition spaces.
      2. Requests for exhibitions in the Assembly lobby can only be made by the following:
      — Assembly committees
      — Parliamentary delegations of member States,
      — Parliaments granted of the special guest, observer or partner for democracy status,
      — Council of Europe institutions and bodies.
      Requests from Permanent Representations of States concerned may only be considered if transmitted via, and with the support of, the relevant parliamentary delegation.
      A requesting committee/delegation/institution can be granted no more than one exhibition per year.
      3. Exhibitions requests must include the following elements:
      — the title;
      — the subject of the exhibition;
      — whether it satisfies one of the following criteria: a link to the work as well as the values of the Council of Europe; a support for co-operation amongst member States; a link to the work of the Assembly;
      — a detailed presentation of the exhibition, for example a “scenario”, scanned photos or other electronic samples of the kind of exhibits to be shown;
      — the size of the exhibition, on the understanding that each organiser can only be granted one exhibition space, which are limited in size;
      — an undertaking that the exhibition, if agreed, will be set up on the Friday prior to the part-session, and be taken down not earlier than the Friday after the end of the part-session.
      4. The subject-matter of the exhibition should not be controversial or politically divisive, and in any case shall not contain propaganda for ideas or activities which are incompatible with the Council of Europe’s principles. In particular, it should not have a racist, xenophobic or intolerant content.
      5. Requests for authorisation must be submitted to the President of the Assembly not later than six weeks in advance of the opening of the part-session to which the request relates. This deadline shall not apply to exhibitions organised outside of part-sessions of the Assembly.
      6. The responsibility for agreeing to such request rests with the President of the Assembly, whose decision is final. The President will agree to such requests on the basis of the criteria already given under paragraphs 3-5 above. These criteria are not binding but designed to help the President in taking a decision.
