Is online the new blog launched by the European Movement International (EMI) in the framework of the next EMI congress on “Fostering Civil Society’s role for further European integration in the Eastern Partnership countries”, taking place on 20 – 21 October 2011 in Yerevan, Armenia.
The Yerevan-Blog will serve as a platform of exchange in order to prepare the Yerevan Congress.
EMI invites its members to submit their ideas on the topics to be discussed, such as the Civil Society development in the Eastern Partnership countries, regional/national reform processes, Visa liberalization or simply Civil Society activities that deserve to be highlighted.
The most popular contributions will be debated during the congress with civil society actors as well as local and national public authorities from the European Union and the Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine).
During the 2-day programme of the Congress, participants will have the possibility to work on a political strategy that is supposed to provide recommendations on the further development of the regional civil society dialogue. In the long term perspective, the objective is to contribute to the democratization process and to eradicate the gap between public authorities and citizens in the policy-making process.
