In the 21st century terrorist threat represents an additional challenge in the area of human rights protection. Thus, human rights institutions are faced with additional responsibility in the context of state action in combatting terrorism. These were the central topics of the working meeting titled Protecting Human Rights While Countering Terrorism organized on 20 May 2016 in Paris by the COE’s Commissioner for Human Rights Nils Muižnieks and ENNHRI (the European Network of National Human Rights Institutions, chaired by the Ombudswoman of the Republic of Croatia, Lora Vidović).

Ombudswoman Lora Vidović, together with her deputies Tena Šimonović Einwalter and Jagoda Novak, met Ms Uzra Zeya, USA Assistant Secretary of State on 24th October 2013 at the Sheraton hotel premises in Zagreb.
