The purpose of the meeting of the General Assembly was, among other topics, to examine the activities and progress of the European Network of National Human Rights Institutes in 2022, as well as discuss the planning for 2023 and adopt a new strategic plan.

At the meeting, which was attended by representatives of national human rights institutions of more than 40 countries, the third annual report of ENNHRI on the state of the rule of law in Europe, the current challenges presented in that report, and the progress recorded in various fields were discussed. Within the framework of the assembly, the national defense institutions discussed the challenges of the defender institutions in the new security situations. They agreed to continue the work, first of all, to increase the institutions' resistance by developing and approving programs to ensure the resistance.

Kristine Grigoryan presented the work and difficulties of the Armenian human rights defender institution during and after the aggressive attack on Armenia on September 13-14 of this year, considering the widespread nature of human rights violations and a large number of war crimes.
