Consultation with Civil Society and Consultation Calendar

EASO consults registered Consultative Forum members in different ways. In addition to the annual Plenary Consultative Forum meeting, EASO consults civil society on a continuous basis throughout the year in various different forms, including:

  • Targeted consultations;
  • Open consultations

Examples of targeted consultations include e.g. bilateral and multilateral exchanges of information, participation of civil society organisations (by invitation) in EASO thematic expert meetings, workshops, seminars, interviews etc. For example, with regard to COI, consultation meetings are held with selected specialised civil society organisations. Similarly, in the context of training and the development of EASO Practical Tools, a Reference Group (including members of civil society) is regularly consulted and closely involved in the development of EASO training material and Practical Tools.

Next to these forms of consultations, EASO additionally conducts open consultations with civil society using IT tools. Online consultations are used as much as possible as they ensure the broadest possible outreach and facilitate organisations to contribute in a cost-effective manner.
