Civil Society Week: EP Elections toolkit for civil society

Within the Civil Society Week, organised by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), a panel on “EP Elections toolkit for civil society: How to successfully tackle disinformation and citizenwashing” will take place on 6th March 2024.

Be it implementing the necessary reforms or the different tools that the EU offers to answer the challenges of our time, civil society has demonstrated its crucial role in contributing to more resilient and democratic societies. In candidate countries in particular, civil society is an important driving force towards transparency, inclusion and integration. While geopolitical and democratic challenges have accelerated the need to rethink the enlargement policy, it is of utmost importance (now more than ever) that EU institutions ensure that civil society from EU countries as well as enlargement countries are included in the institutional processes that would eventually lead to accession.

This workshop will aim to:

  • underline the resilience and vital role of civil society in the process,
  • highlight the need to identify clearer mechanisms through which civil society can be a recognised part of EU accession negotiations,
  • earmark resources to support it in this task.
