Seminar on empowering civil society

The event is part of a series of three seminars on how the EU can further develop its role to protect, empower and support civil society organisations and human rights defenders.

This seminar will explore how the EU can further enable civil society organisations and human rights defenders’ participation in policy-making processes, and how Member States can be supported in maintaining an enabling environment for civil society actors’ participation. The seminar will be co-organised with the European Commission.
