Reminder to INGOs with participatory status to send in their report by 31 March

With two weeks to go before the deadline, there is still time for your INGO to submit its report on its co-operation with the Council of Europe for the period 2016-2019.

Committee of Ministers’ Resolution (2016)3 on participatory status for INGOs with the Council of Europe requires INGOs to report every four years on their co-operation with the Organisation. To this end a Survey Monkey questionnaire was sent by the Secretariat to the official representative of each INGO, with the request to reply by 31 March 2020. Failure to do so could result in the withdrawal of participatory status.

As of today - 

  • 98 INGOs have sent the questionnaire;
  • 199 INGOs have not sent the questionnaire (49 INGOs have started but not finished and 22% of the INGOs have not yet opened the questionnaire).

If the official representative of your INGO did not receive this questionnaire, please write to NGO-unit@coe.int. We also encourage you to use this opportunity to check and update your INGO's data in the database on the website. 

It's not too late to make sure your INGO fulfils its obligations.  We count on your cooperation and look forward to receiving reports that are still outstanding in the next few weeks.
