|NSC - North-South Centre of the Council of Europe|
EuroMeSCo "liaison officer": Emília Soares
The European Centre for Global Interdependence and Solidarity also known as North-South Centre is an enlarged partial agreement of the Council of Europe. It was created in Lisbon in May 1990 with the purpose of raising awareness of global interdependence. It currently has 16 member States.
Today the objective of the North-South Centre is to contribute to democratic processes, mainly through education to democratic citizenship and intercultural dialogue. The main target is civil society, in particular youth and women. The Centre offers for neighbouring regions a unique platform for dialogue and structured cooperation between all dimensions of the «quadrilogue»: representatives of the governments, the parliaments, the local authorities and the civil society. The Centre acts to promote the principles and standards of the Council of Europe, through comprehensive multilateral actions of regional scope in the Mediterranean Region.
