ENAR is changing….
After 10 months of intensive work among ENAR members, the 11th General Assembly approved ENAR’s new statutes in June 2012. A transitional period from June 2012 to June 2013 will ensure a smooth implementation of the new governance structure.
In line with ENAR’s restructuring, ENAR has developed a new membership strategy, offering anti-discrimination organisations in EU Member States the possibility to become ENAR members. In this way, ENAR members are encouraged to connect directly with ENAR Europe.
Members will work together and rely on ENAR national platforms as a basis for collaboration. National platforms are important for strategising, coordinating, exchanging information at the national level, and achieving the wider goals of ENAR throughout Europe.
Who can become an ENAR member?
You can become an ENAR member if you are an organisation working in the broad anti-racism and anti-discrimination field in an EU/EEA country. ENAR members can be all types of organisations, provided that they share the same mission and vision of ENAR, and may include including grassroots organisations, advocacy organisations, information institutes, research centres, faith-based organisations, service-oriented organisations, charitable organisations and trade unions. Member organisations should be constituted in accordance with the laws and practices of their country.
In 2013, ENAR will open its membership to non-profit organisations established in accession countries and countries that are members of the Council of Europe.
Why become an ENAR member?
ENAR Europe plays a key role in pushing EU institutions, policy makers, media and others to take action to promote non-discrimination and anti-racism. It also monitors European developments to ensure they do not undermine fundamental rights in the EU and its Member States.
ENAR believes the key elements of efficient advocacy are concerted strategies and interaction between the European and the national, regional and local levels with all relevant stakeholders (such as European institutions, international organisations, companies, legal entities, European networks, civil society organisations, research centres, academic institutes,...).
More about the membership benefits:
ENAR members enjoy a number of advantages, including receiving European-wide information relevant to anti-racism and equality, policy advice, horizontal networking and possibilities for collaborative activities, capacity building, stronger visibility and advocacy, as well as organisational rights and benefits.
ENAR's membership fee scheme is progressive, which allows any organisation, big or small, to become an ENAR member. The membership fee will be paid annually to ENAR Europe. The current scheme for fees for full members per year is as follows:
