Aim of the Assistance

The P2P Programme intends to offer to individuals and organisations from the beneficiary countries the possibility to visit EU institutions, as well as relevant EU platform organisations, or whenever relevant for the topic of the study visits, also other European, international or nationals organisations, in order to familiarise themselves with EU structures, policy making process, programmes, policies and best practices. The aim of this study tour is to inform the participating representatives of civil society organisations about international and European legal bases which prohibit discriminations on the ground of sexual orientations. This study tour also aims at giving examples of good practices from civil society organisations based in Brussels and in the member states offering the participants networking opportunities among themselves and with European-level civil society organisations active in this field. The study visit is open for the participation of several representatives of civil society organisations from each of the candidate countries and potential candidates to EU enlargement (except for Iceland). Around 30 participants from civil society organisations in the Western Balkans and Turkey will attend the study visit.
