The European Social Charter (referred to below as “the Charter”) is a treaty of the Council of Europe which sets out human rights for everyday life and requires their respect by the States which have accepted it. The table (p.7) shows which countries have currently signed and ratified the Charter. The contents of the Charter were enriched and the 1996 Revised European Social Charter is gradually replacing the initial 1961 treaty.
