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.
