Aim of the Assistance
The conference it will seek to answer the some of the following questions through a series of four participatory workshops:
- Why do NGOs and decision makers engage in ‘civil dialogue’? Who should take part?
- What civil dialogue structures are necessary for a more ‘social’ Europe that is based on fundamental rights?
- What role should be played by European networks: drivers of European integration, watchdogs or merely facilitators of European propaganda?
- How can the ‘hard to reach communities bring their voices to too often inaccessible European decision-making processes?
The conference aims to assess the current structures and processes of civil dialogue at European level and agree concrete recommendations on how to improve these structures and processes.
