Summary/Abstract: The Council of Europe was established after the ravaging Second World War with the role of strengthening democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in its member states, and with the overarching aim of consolidating the democratic stability in Europe. The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) is one of Council of Europe’s ten monitoring bodies and the subject of this research and article. In the next pages I will focus on two of its activities: the General Policy Recommendations and the country reports. I will concentrate on how the forty-seven member states address ECRI’s – GPRs especially on issues like racism, xenophobia, antisemitism and intolerance. I will analyse this considering the latest country reports, following the fourth and the fifth monitoring cycles.
