Open letter: European Institutions Must Recognise, Involve and Support Civil society as Part of a Structured Civil Dialogue

About this Open Letter

On 24 January, European civil society sent an open letter to the Presidents of the European Commission and the European Parliament, and the Belgian presidency of the Council of the European Union. IGLYO and all the other signatories of the letter urge the three main institutions of the European Union (EU) involved in EU decision-making to take concrete measures to implement an open, transparent and regular dialogue with civil society organisations in all policy areas, as set out in Article 11 of the Treaty on European Union.

The open letter was initiated by the Civil Society Organisations' Group of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and Civil Society Europe and includes specific proposals for implementation. The letter gained the support of a total of 156 signatories from 26 Member States. The signatories include 39 European networks, including IGLYO, 85 national organisations and 60 Members of the EESC's Civil Society Organisations' Group.
