ANNUAL MEETINGS

The European Network of Ombudspersons for Children (ENOC) holds one major member’s meeting each year (and occasional special meetings). These are hosted by a member institution or by ENOC.

They include sharing information on members’ activities and strategies, discussion of particular themes and adoption of position statements, as well as network business.

ENOC invites Independent Children’s Rights Institutions (ICRIs) from and outside Europe to attend as observers as well as representatives of International and European organisations (CoE, EU, UN, UNICEF, etc.) and of non-governmental organisations operating in the children’s rights field. Other observers may be invited at the discretion of the Bureau of ENOC.
