The CEB has 41 member states who are the Bank’s shareholders. All countries that are members of the Council of Europe are eligible to join the CEB.
The CEB can provide loans to any of its member states, in accordance with its mandate. The Bank may also receive voluntary contributions from its members, through fiduciary accounts.
A member country can be both a donor and a recipient of loans.
