CSE’s Working Groups (WGs) have been established to create a space for dialogue between civil society organisations and movements across the EU. The WGs provide a common and permanent space for the pooling of: experiences and good practices; knowledge and documentary sources; campaigns and other forms of collective actions. They are currently focused on 4 thematic areas. Click on them to learn more:
