Civil Society Organizations

The collaboration with NGO’s and Civil Society Organizations at EU, national and local level will be key in order to benefit from the exchange views and experiences between the members of the consortium and representatives from the Organizations. RELIGARE will actively involve these Organizations in the debates by inviting their representatives to participate in the project events and debate on the project’s outputs. Furthermore, RELIGARE will also contribute to facilitate access to the project results and keep them informed on the activities carried out within the project.

All of them at European, National and local level.

> Publishing Working Papers that will reflect the work being conducted within the RELIGARE project and will aim at stimulating reactions from other experts in the field.
> Delivering Policy briefs – concise, policy-oriented analyses of topical issues, with the aim of interjecting the views of the project researchers into the policy-making process.

What will RELIGARE produce for NGO’s and Civil Society Organizations?
During the course of the project, RELIGARE will produce Working Papers, Policy Briefs, Books, Reports, three Policy Dialogue Meetings, expected to take place in Brussels, Ankara and Strasbourg, five Expert Seminars organized within the EU and Turkey and a Final Conference. The Policy Dialogue Meetings will bring together the project partners, academics, policy makers, representatives from civil society and NGOs to discuss on the project outputs. The Expert Seminars aim at strengthen the policy impact of the project’s research results by opening up a reflexive and plural discussion with experts on the field and with public servants at national and/or European level.
