News & Events
Over the past 25 years, the European Network Against Racism has dedicated its efforts to end structural racism in Europe. Founded in 1998 by grassroots activists, ENAR is the only pan-European anti-racism network that combines advocacy for racial equality whilst facilitating cooperation among civil society anti-racism actors in Europe. While the world around us has changed since then, our mission in pursuit for equality has not. Here are a few of our organisation’s key achievements:
Founding of ENAR
Adoption of the EU Race and Equality Directive
Inclusion of NAPAR position during the World Conference Against Racism
Official launch of the Anti-racism and Diversity Intergroup (ARDI)
Creation of the ENAR Foundation for a more sustainable Network
Adoption of a new membership structure improving network visibility via direct membership

We are organising a competition for artists to propose designs that will feature as part of our 25th Anniversary apparel collection throughout the year. The money raised will support ENAR’s work, our members and their activities!
