4th General Meeting of national associations of local and regional authorities
The Congress organised the 4th round of the General Meeting of national associations of local and regional authorities on 13 September 2012 in Strasbourg (France). This meeting was an occasion to examine the priorities of the Congress for 2013-2016 with a view to their adoption at the 23rd Session this October, and also to discuss joint actions that might be conducted by the Congress and the national associations. A specific debate also dealt with the ONE in FIVE campaign of the Council of Europe to combat sexual violence towards children. The aim is to illustrate the concrete actions that the national associations and the local and regional authorities can conduct in this field.
