Civil Society Dialogue Network

 

 

The Civil Society Dialogue Network (CSDN) is a three-year project co-financed by the European Union (Instrument for Stability) and aimed at facilitating dialogue on peacebuilding issues between civil society and EU policy-makers.

The CSDN will contribute to strengthening international and regional capacity for conflict prevention and post-conflict co-operation. EPLO will organise CSDN meetings which will be open to all interested civil society actors and will take place in Brussels, EU Member States and conflict-affected countries with EU presence.

The CSDN will discuss policy, strategic and programming aspects of the Peacebuilding Partnership, transversal thematic issues relating to peacebuilding and crisis-specific situations. CSDN meetings will fall into the following seven categories:

  1. Policy (Thematic)
  2. Geographic
  3. Funding Instruments
  4. Member State
  5. Early Response
  6. The EU in International Peacebuilding
  7. Training Seminars

 

 

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

Title Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace - Updates on programming; building links to other EU external financing instruments
Type Funding Instruments Meeting
Date Friday 11 April 2014
Time 13.30-18.00
Venue Martin's Brussels EU Hotel, Boulevard Charlemagne / Karel de Grootlaan 80, 1000 Brussels
Short Description

This meeting has been organised as a follow-up to the Civil Society Dialogue Network (CSDN) Funding Instruments Meeting which took place in September 2013 in Brussels.

 

The purpose of this meeting is for the European Commission (EC) and the European External Action Service (EEAS) to provide an update on the Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP) Strategy Paper (SP) 2014-2020 and Multiannual Indicative Programme (MIP) 2014-2017, and to present the IcSP 2014 annual action programmes (AAPs).

 

It will also provide an opportunity to introduce a broader discussion about support for peacebuilding and conflict prevention under the other EU external financing instruments in the context of the recent joint EC-EEAS communication on the EU's comprehensive approach to external conflicts and crises.

 

It is envisaged that this preliminary exchange of views will facilitate the identification of key issues relating to support for peacebuilding and conflict prevention under the other EU external financing instruments which could be further discussed in a dedicated CSDN Funding Instruments Meeting later in the year.
