Policy-makers and Practitioners

The participants in the RELIGARE project are aware of the importance of communicating the project results to policy-makers and practitioners at EU, national and local level. Policy-makers need to have access to research results and key documents in order to make decisions and to formulate adequate policies both at national and European level. In this light, practitioners will also need to have access to the project outputs in order to keep updated on the latest developments. Accordingly, RELIGARE will provide them with information that synthesizes the project's research with a policy-oriented focus.

Who are the policy-makers and practitioners addressed by RELIGARE?
> Policy-makers
> Stakeholders
> Civil servants
> Professional and Policy Practitioners

> Politicians

All of them at European, National and local level.


RELIGARE’s contributions to policy-makers and practitioners
RELIGARE will bring together high-quality research with a view to enhancing dialogue between policy-makers and researchers by:
> Organizing Policy Dialogue Meetings, Expert Seminars and Conferences where researchers, policy-makers and civil society organizations will have the opportunity to meet and exchange views.
> Preparing 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.
> Producing dissemination material consisting of: Leaflets, Project Identity, small publications.

What will RELIGARE produce for policy-makers and practitioners?
During the course of the project, RELIGARE will produce Policy Briefs and organize three Policy Dialogue Meetings (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 the project outputs. The Expert Seminars aim to strengthen the policy impact of the project’s research results by opening up a reflective and plural discussion with experts in the field and with public servants at national and/or European level.
