The Civil Society Dialogue Network (CSDN) is a mechanism for dialogue between civil society and European Union (EU) policy-makers on peace and conflict. Most 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.
