Central and Eastern Europe Civil Society Forum 2016
The aim of this forum is to discuss the role of civil society in a changing Europe. Challenges such as the refugee crisis and the rise of populism pose a serious threat to the stability of Europe.
The 2016 edition of the Central and Eastern Europe Civil Society Forum will focus on exploring the role of civil society in the new European political landscape dominated by the refugee crisis, the rise of populism, spreading democratic backsliding and erosion of the liberal democracy and support for the European project.
The main function of this year’s Forum is to consult with like-minded civil society organisations on how to coordinate actions to support democracy in Europe. Representatives of government, international institutions and donors will also be invited to share views.
