At a moment when basic civil rights are challenged across the European Union, European Institutions need to lead by examples in ensuring that organised civil society can flourish and be empowered. Concrete measures must be introduced to support and develop civic space in the Europe.
Civil Society Europe calls on all EU institutions to recognise in their work and statements the specific role of civil society organisations: NGOs, Associations and Foundations in the development of a European democratic society.
We have developed a Roadmap with actions to be taken by the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Council of the EU, and the European Council at a time when a new strategic programme and a new leadership is being decided for the European Union.
