Organizations and individuals can join the EIN by becoming its members or by partnering with the EIN.

EIN members shall have a right to participate in the EIN’s General Assembly meetings, receive information about all EIN activities and actively contribute to the development of the EIN.

EIN partners can participate in and benefit from the EIN activities.

EIN membership is open to all civil society organisations or individuals adhering to the founding statute of the EIN and working towards effective implementation of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).
