Civil Society Dialogue Network

The Civil Society Dialogue Network (CSDN) is a mechanism for dialogue between civil society and EU policy-makers on peace and conflict. It is co-financed by the European Union (Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace) and the European Peacebuilding Liaison Office (EPLO), and managed by EPLO in co-operation with the European Commission (EC) and the European External Action Service (EEAS).

The CSDN was established in 2010 and the third phase (CSDN III) began in 2017 and will last until 2020.

CSDN events take the form of dialogue meetings which bring together relevant civil society actors and EU policy-makers. They take place in Brussels, EU Member States and conflict-affected countries with EU presence.

EPLO will produce background material, including briefing papers, reports, and policy papers. Updates on the CSDN will also be disseminated via the EPLO External Newsletter.
