The Socialists, Democrats & Greens Parliamentary Assembly Council of Europe (SOC COE). The aim of the Socialist Group is the realisation of the fundamental principles of democratic socialism within the Organization and in the member states of the Council of Europe.

The Socialist Group (SOC) brings together both full members and substitute of the Parliamentary Assembly belonging to political parties with membership to PES, International Socialist and Progressive Alliance. The Council of Europe (COE) is the oldest continent’s organisation which was shaped as a political project in the wake of the Second World War, with the aim of bringing peace and prosperity to a continent that had been long torn apart by wars and atrocities. It is like a huge network of shared values, values of peace, human rights, democracy and rule of law.
