The European Partnership for Democracy (EPD) welcomes the opening of the revision process of the EU Action Plan on Human Rights and Democracy. We thank the EEAS and the Chair of COHOM for opening the discussion with Civil and Political Society Organisations (CPSOs) in 2014 and for putting efforts in making it a genuine and open consultation process.

As a Community of Practice of democracy support organisations, EPD has chosen to contribute to the consultation by providing written contributions. Building on recommendations about democracy assistance from our previous written contribution submitted to the EEAS in July 2014, we have developed a set of proposals and objectives, along geographical and thematic perspectives, which centre on the use of inclusive and participatory dialogue as a means for supporting democratisation processes and sharing experience among democracy support practitioners.

EPD recommends that:

  • The EU Delegations support multi-stakeholder dialogue processes as a means to identify reform priorities locally.
  • The EEAS and European Commission should invite the Member States and Political and Civil Society Organisations from the democracy support sector to take part in a structured dialogue on how the EU and its Member States support democratic change.
