This chapter critically assesses the ways in which both the Council of Europe and the EU have engaged with the interface between human rights and tobacco control, looking at laws and policies relevant to tobacco use and exposure to second-hand smoke (SHS). Its overarching objective is to explore whether a human rights approach to tobacco control exists in Europe.
