ENOHE Calls for 2015 Papers

The European Network of Ombudsmen in Higher Education is inviting submissions for its 2015 annual conference to be held in Innsbruck, Austria on May 28-30, 2015 .  The theme is: "Years of Solitude? University Ombudsmen‘s Pioneering Past, Confident Present, Challenging Future." 

The Editorial Committee of ENOHE 2015 has the pleasure in calling for proposals for presentations (as part of a roundtable), best practice/special project sessions or workshops. The total length of each session will be 75 minutes and time will be allowed in this for questions and discussion. 

The conference will be divided into three separate strands: 
  • Under the Pioneering Past strand of the 2015 conference, presenters will give an insight into the history of ombudsing in HE and reflect on the main ideas of the founding generation. Speakers are also invited to draw up a balance-sheet setting out the main values still present among us today.
  • The Confident Present strand will give speakers and panel members the opportunity to tell “the stories of their (working) lives”, with all of the good and probably also the not so good aspects. 
  • The Challenging Future strand of the 2015 conference encourages presenters to take a view into the positioning of ombuds offices these days. They are invited to comment on emerging and redirecting their services in other jurisdictions and newly emerging (cyber space) working conditions. Simultaneously, scenarios on the European-wide initiative to strengthen the importance of the ombudsman as an dispensable internal and external player within HE will be discussed. 
Proposals are due by February 16, 2015.  (ENOHE Call for Papers.)
