    The Council of Europe’s latest report gives a stark warning on the state of democracy on the continent, saying the democratic environment and institutions “are in mutually reinforcing decline.”

    But what can it do to reverse the backsliding? And how can it uphold human rights in countries who enjoy membership of the club but don’t follow its rules?

    On DW’s Conflict Zone, host Tim Sebastian speaks to Dunja Mijatovic, the commissioner for human rights at the Council of Europe, on the line from Strasbourg.

    Conflict Zone is Deutsche Welle’s top political interview. Every week, our hosts Tim Sebastian and Sarah Kelly are face to face with global decision-makers, seeking straight answers to straight questions, putting the spotlight on controversial issues and calling the powerful to account.
