Organisation of the European Union-Civil Society Organisations Forum

Overall objective:

The policy orientations of ‘The Roots of Democracy and sustainable development’, endorsed by the Council of the European Union in September 2012, propose an enhanced and more strategic EU engagement with CSOs in developing, enlargement and neighbourhood countries, with a particular focus on EU’s foreign policy concerning local civil society organisations.

Recognising the importance of constructive relations between states and CSOs, the EU highlighted as a priority the consolidation of the dialogue between the European Union and Civil Society as well as the policymaker outreach in the implementation of EU policies related to CSOs empowerment.

Specific objective:

In this context, B&S Europe has organized the first CSO-LA Forum on the 17th and 18th March 2016; the main objective of the assignment was to assist the EC with the organization of this event.
