In the present work we deal with one of the less-well studied aspects of the many that configure the regional phenomenon in Europe; this is, regional participation in the Council of Europe, analysing the interesting innovations this phenomenon has had in this organisation through the Congress of Local and Regional Powers and concretely, after the creation of their novel Chamber of the Regions. In fact, if the Council of Europe was the first international organisation to integrate territorial representatives in their organisational structure upon setting up the Conference of Local and Regional Powers, today it is experiencing in a pioneering manner the differentiated and singular representation of the Regions separated from other territorial powers in its Chamber of the Regions, becoming a possible antecedent of similar solutions in other forums, like the Committee of the Regions of the European Union.
