Working groups

European Network meetings are attended by a variety of professionals that work with survivors of torture from different disciplines. The conference also allows for the opportunity to share experiences and the identification of common issues and goals. The working groups of the conference aim to bring together groups of professionals from the various disciplines of work with survivors of torture to identify common issues and to discuss solutions and actions. Each working group has an elected chairperson who steers the discussions and acts as a contact person after the meeting has taken place.
