Ombudswoman Lora Vidović and Deputy Ombudswoman Lidija Lukina Kezić participated at the annual European Network of Ombudsmen Conference held in Bruxelles on 19 and 20 June. The conference, organised by the European Ombudsman Emily O'Reilly, was dedicated to the fallout for citizen rights from Brexit and from increased ‘populism’ in Europe.

"If 2016 was a year of populism, can 2017 be a year of pushback of populism?" – asked O’Reilly in the opening speech. She emphasised transparency as crucial element in building citizens trust in institutions and their work.

Office of the Ombudswoman of Croatia hosted the ENNHRI Annual General Assembly in Zagreb on 27 and 28 October 2016., which offered a unique opportunity for members and ENNHRI partners to discuss the Network's progress during the past year, agree on future activities and debate several thematic issues of great relevance. The event included a seminar on human rights and counter-terrorism.

“I am honoured to be hosting ENNHRI members from 35 countries here in Zagreb, as well as our valued partners from UN Bodies, European human rights mechanisms and networks, and NGOs. Our discussions on topics such as economic and social rights, sustainable development goals or asylum and migration, resulted not only in further strengthening thematic cooperation within ENNHRI, but also members’ capacities and knowledge. Both are of crucial importance during the challenging times that Europe continues to face, amid the economic and refugee crisis as well as security concerns“, said Ombudswoman of Croatia and ENNHRI Chair Lora Vidović.
