Civil society dialogue
Dialogue with civil society is an important part of EU-Thailand relations. Consultations are carried out in different formats to ensure that the voice of actors such as NGOs, media, academics and grassroots organisations is heard when decisions about the direction of EU-Thailand relations are taken.
The Delegation consults civil society organisations during the preparation of the country strategy papers and their revision as well as before the launch of specific cooperation programmes. Civil society organisations are also invited to contribute to the preparation of the guidelines of calls for proposals for development projects.
The Delegation also promotes civil society dialogue with the Thai-EU Co-operation Facility has a budget of € 8 million on top of financing from already existing thematic and regional programmes.
