ENSEC is run on democratic principles and strives towards the inclusion of the representative interests of all European states. This does not necessarily mean that representatives from all European states form part of the Network, but existing ENSEC members will strive to represent the interests of the widest range of European states.
The activities of the Network are organised around a series of specific projects identified through a process of consultation amongst ENSEC members. The purpose of the Network is to complete these projects in accordance with the aims and objectives as have been agreed democratically by the Network members
ENSEC is not intended to be self perpetuating but rather a structure to facilitate the achievement of specific goals
The Network is chaired by two or more joint facilitators for a maximum period of 3 years. The role of the Joint Facilitators includes the following:
to coordinate the Network’s activities
to ensure that the virtual and face to face meetings take place as planned
to report decisions to members
to disseminate information
to monitor ENSEC’s activities according to the agreed objectives
