19th Annual ENOHE Conference 2024: Universidade da Beira Interior, Covilhã, Portugal

June 12 - June 14

The European Network of Ombuds in Higher Education welcomes to this years conference. As usual, the conference will include an academic as well as a social programme. The ENOHE conference planning committee is taking proposals for papers and posters until January 10th 2024. For more information on the call for papers and posters, see the link at the bottom of this text.

The theme of this years conference will be: From Plato’s Academy to Portugal: Democracy. diversity, and the role of the ombudsperson in higher education.

ENOHE’s 2022 conference took place in Athens, Greece, close to the site of Plato’s Academy – arguably the first ‘university’ in Europe.  The 2023 conference took place in Prague, Czech Republic – where in 1989 a student demonstration sparked the Velvet Revolution. ENOHE’s 2024 conference will take place in Covilhã, Portugal – 50 years after the Carnation Revolution and Portugal’s transition to democracy.  With democratic principles and transparent governance procedures on the agenda for higher education institutions, how do the roles of the ombudsperson and students’ associations ensure equity, fairness, diversity and inclusion in higher education?  How are the needs and expectations of students balanced against the requirements of their institutions – and what part does the ombudsperson play in balancing the dynamics of power?

ENOHE’s 2024 annual conference will include plenary and working sessions on these topics and – for the first time – poster sessions.  A complementary social programme will also be available.

More information will be made available as the date approaches.
