The BEARR Trust Annual Conference “Stormy outlook?  Challenges facing health and welfare NGOs and their international links”

This all-day conference on 14 November 2014 will look at the constraints – political, legal, bureaucratic, financial – that face NGOs across our region, and consider how they are adapting to cope with, in some of our countries, rapidly changing circumstances.

Overviews will be provided by two keynote speakers:

Dr Armine Ishkanian, Department of Social Policy, London School of Economics and Political Sciences

Kate Levine, lawyer, EHRAC, and until recently Sigrid Rausing Foundation

On our panels we shall have NGO leaders from Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Central Asia, covering a wide range of health and welfare issues.

Ukrainian participant,Valentina Diomkina, was until recently head of a youth NGO in Donetsk (Donetsk Youth Debate Centre), and will be able to bring us the latest news of the situation for organisations in eastern Ukraine.
