Through its working group on Civil Society Recognition where ENNA is member, Civil Society Europe has prepared an online questionnaire on an assessment of civil dialogue mechanisms open for both European and national NGOs and associations.

The responses to the questionnaire as well as the results of interviews with NGOs and EU institutions will contribute to the preparation of a report on the State of the Union of civil dialogue in the EU to be issued in the autumn. This survey aims at analysing Civil Society Organisations (NGOs, associations) interaction with the different European Union institutions and the possibility to share their expertise and influence decisions on EU policies and legislation. The survey includes questions on the dialogue organised by the European Commission, European Parliament and the Council both in Brussels and at national level.

Please do not hesitate to share it with your members or with other civil society organisations you are in contact with. Also use the opportunity of your internal meetings to respond to the survey or ask your members to respond. The survey is open until the end of August.
