27/01/2021 | 18:06:35 Mr President, dear colleagues, I would like to thank the rapporteur for this important and timely report. NGO's are the cornerstone of a democratic society. Their role as generators and participants of the public debate is of vital importance. Exposing injustices and expressing the will of citizens through NGO activity is a major precondition for liberal democracies. As platforms of influence the NGO’s bring people together and contribute extensively to the inclusive democratic system.

I very much welcome the suggestion to link the future strategy of the CEB to the UN´s Sustainable Development Goals, as they reflect our many common challenges ahead and call for action to tackle them. In the presence of CEB’s Director Mr... 02/10/2019 | 11:18:21 Thank you, Mr Chair. As Finland’s ombudsman institution will celebrate its 100-year anniversary next year, I welcome this report by our British colleague. As a result of the recent adoption of the Venice Principles, this is a good time for us to reflect on the need for a set of common standards for the ombudsmen institutions in our countries.
