Who we are

Civil Society Europe (CSE) brings together 27 European networks of civil society organisations (CSO) working towards regenerating the European project around the shared values of Equality, Solidarity, Inclusiveness and Democracy.

Our main objectives: to facilitate and enable horizontal and vertical dialogue between European civil society organisations and policy-makers and help strengthening CSOs in their activities and relations with the institutions.

The organisation was founded in December 2014 in Rome at the close of the European Year of citizens as an initiative of organisations that had worked together in the European Year of Citizens Alliance. Its membership has grown since then to encompass the various sectors of civil society. CSE has been established as an international  not for profit organisation under Belgian law since June 2016.

CSE is funded through membership fees and contributions by its members.

CSE is an independent voice promoting a space for structured civil dialogue and citizen’s participation at all levels.
