On 23-24 June 2018, EuroMed Rights convened its 11th General Assembly in Brussels. It was preceded by a seminar on shrinking space for civil society entitled “Enabling civil society and countering the repressive trends:  what role for EuroMed Rights?”.

All regular, associate and honorary members of the network were invited, as well as external observers such as EuroMed Rights’ donors, partner NGOs, and EU representatives. Approximately 110 participants gathered at the Renaissance Hotel in Brussels to attend the event.

The gathering of all EuroMed Rights’ members was also an opportunity for the Euro-Mediterranean Foundation of Support to Human Rights Defenders to hold its 5th Consultation of the Council of Representatives on 23 June.

The present report details the discussions held during EuroMed Rights General Assembly, where the Activity Report, Financial Report, Gender Audit, Work Programme for 2018-2021 and proposed amendments to the statutes were presented, debated, and voted on. The report also provides an overview of the discussion on the Work Programme and the Strategy, held in two plenary sessions focusing on economic and social rights and discrimination. Finally, it presents the outcomes of the vote on new members and the results of the Executive Committee and Presidency elections.
