Future ECRAF

The ECRAF Congress 2008 in Denmark decided to appoint a Working Group (WG) to deal with the “Future ECRAF”.

The working group consisted of: Oddvar Haagensen, Norway, chairman, Martin Faulkner, United Kingdom, vice-chaiman, Robert Windischmann, Germany, member, Georges Fuhrer, Switzerland, member and Leif Agnar Ellevset, Norway, secretary. The WG has had three meetings and documents have been prepared in advance before each meeting. The meetings were held in Norway (Oslo), Germany (Bremen) and Italy (NATO Defense College Rome).

The WG wanted to implement its work in close collaboration and understanding with the members countries. In order to get a highest possible involvement, the WG sent out two questionnaires which obtained good response from most of the member countries. The main conclusions from the WG was the following:

  • ECRAF needs to be a more formal and active organization. A stronger ECRAF with increased political ties will, in all likelihood demand a reinforced administration. ECRAF at present does not possess to increase the resources to increase the administrative function.
  • ECRAF has since it was re-established in 2002 used the expression committee which was correct at this stage. However, the development of the organisation over recent years and future plans, make its necessary to change from the term committee to commission. This will make no change of the existing letters used in the actual ECRAF abbreviation.
  • The existing statutes of ECRAF which are likely to be described more as a Terms of Reference,  need to be revised. The WG therefore worked out a proposal for new statutes. In order to give the members more influence on the development of the organisation, it was proposed to change from Presidency to an Executive Committee with four members.
  • In order to give the future ECRAF a better structure and greater influence in the working areas, the WG presented a complete and detailed draft for a Strategy Plan 2009 – 2012 and an Action Plan 2009 – 2010.

The WG report and draft plans was to be considered as the most important documents at the congress / general assembly in Finland. The WG therefore recommend the Presidency to make a proper accomplishment of the agenda of the congress /general assembly, so that the WG’s report and draft plans will be discussed and decided upon in a proper and most correct way.

The WG was grateful for the given task which has brought many interesting and challenging issues on the table. The WG presented the following documents:

  1. Report Working Group
  2. Draft Strategy Plan 2009 / Action Plan 2009 – 2010 (Annex 1)
  3. Draft statutes for ECRAF (Annex 2)
  4. Summary member answers questionnaire (Annex 3)
