Belgium: Forum of EU Delegation Focal Points for Human Rights, Democracy and Civil Society
This week, B&S Europe supports the European Commission in the organization of the Forum of EU Delegation Focal Points for Human Rights, Democracy and Civil Society. The focal points are the main drivers of the implementation of the EU policies, programmes and financing instruments related to human rights, democracy and civil society.
This year the Annual Forum for the EU Delegation focal points brought together more than 170 participants in Brussels to:
• Exchange between headquarters and the EU Delegations on the main policy and programme developments and priorities in the area of human rights, democracy, and civil society support;
• Share experience and good practice among EU Delegations, within the same region and across regions;
• Upgrade individual knowledge on a number of relevant themes.
During the Forum, regional sessions have been organised in order to discuss specific thematics that EC deem important for the future. The objective was to debate, share best practices with the delegations and give them tools for possible action they could implement in the future.
