Civil Society Dialogue Network
The Civil Society Dialogue Network (CSDN) is a three-year project co-financed by the European Commission (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:
- Policy (Thematic)
- Funding Instruments
- Member State
- In-country Dialogue
- Early Response
- 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.
