Council of Europe, history of the European Union, European law


Before the start of the first world conflagration, the problem of the organization of the European territory was perceived as being stringent, and two main directions were advanced: on the one hand, by "simple cooperation, that respected the existing state sovereignties", and on the other hand, by "overcoming sovereignties through a process of unification, followed by integration" (Manolache, 2018). The two World Wars, that caused millions of victims in a relatively short time, and the establishment of totalitarian regimes, fascist ideology and communist tendencies determined the creation of systems for the protection of human rights.
