Challenges and opportunities in the field of participatory policy making in the six Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine) are featured in a new study on civil participation in decision-making in this region, supported by the joint EU/Council of Europe (CoE) Programmatic Cooperation Framework (PCF). The publication examines existing laws, agencies and procedures governing civil participation in political decision-making at national and local level in the six countries.
It will be complemented by a second study conducted in 2016 that will examine the experience of implementation of civil participation in political decision making, an EU/CoE PCF press release said. The whole publication will be later translated into the languages of the Eastern Partnership countries to ensure as wide a dissemination as possible.
