	%X The following paper describes the activity of national
and international parliamentary assemblies of the European region
in protection and promotion of human rights. It may be said that
parliamentarians have a “double mandate” — as members of the
international assembly and of their respective national parliaments.
In other words, parliamentarization at both international and national
level provides a situation for parliamentarians, where they link
people, national governments and international organizations. The
paper is aimed towards demonstrating that the activity of the
main international parliamentary assemblies of the European region
have a real positive impact on the human rights situation in the
European region. In addition, the paper describes the assemblies
that include protection of human rights in their Agenda as one
of the main subjects: the EP, the PACE, the OSCE PA and the
IPA CIS. Co-operation activities such as joint election observation;
participation in inter-parliamentary associations, such as the IPU;
conclusion agreements allow assemblies to provide observation of
human right situation in the states that are not members of the
particular organization and as consequence make their impact broader.
