European Network Training Organisations for Local and Regional Authorities

ENTO is a European network grouping together the local and regional authority training establishments of virtually all of the Council of Europe’s member states.

First thought up by the Council of Europe, ENTO has, since 1995, been an independent association grouping a very wide variety of members, among them both organisations with years of training experience and relatively recent institutions with their own specialities.

From this diversity springs a wide-ranging network within which members can exchange ideas and pool experience with other persons or bodies active in the same field, but with a different fund of knowledge.

Council of Europe

Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of Europe In 1994, the Council of Europe established the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of Europe (CRAE) as consultative body to replace the former Standing Conference of Local and Regional Authorities. The Congress helps new members with practical aspects of their progress towards establishing effective local and regional government. ENTO enjoys privileged relationship with the CLRAE, providing support to its assistance programmes with regard to training of staff and elected representatives of local and regional authorities (more…CE site, CLRAE).

Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of Europe

The Council of Europe is an intergovernmental organisation, which aims at protecting human rights, pluralist democracy and the rule of law. Established on 5 May 1949 by ten member States, the Council of Europe has now 47 member countries. The Council of Europe should not be confused with European Union. The two organisations are quite distinct. The 27 European states, however, are all members of the Council of Europe. The Palais de l’Europe in Strasbourg (France) is the Council of Europe’s headquarters
