Call for Framework Partnerships for Regional Structured Dialogue and Capacity Building of the Civil Society in the Southern Neighbourhood


DG NEAR has published today this call for proposals to foster and promote a functioning pluralistic and participatory democracy in the Southern Neighbourhood countries.

With two objectives: to increase participation of CSOs in policy making process and policy dialogue, the promotion of public accountability and the advocacy role of civil society; and to enable CSOs in the Southern Neighbourhood to participate in structured dialogue with the European Union.

These will be reached via establishment of a pool of Framework Partners that share EU's vision on capacity development of CSOs across the Southern Neighbourhood (SN), on regional structured dialogue between the EU and CSOs and on a framework of enhanced cooperation based on mutual interests and common general objectives.

All information can be found on the EuropeAid website:

Information session about the call will be held on Friday 15th July at 11am (CET) online, please register for the session.
