EU Civil Society Forum 2024 Western Balkans and Türkiye

We are pleased to announce the upcoming EU Civil Society Forum for the Western Balkans and Türkiye

Event Details:

  • Dates: 11-13 June 2024
  • Venue: Belgrade, Serbia

The EU Civil Society Forum for the Western Balkans and Türkiye is an annual event organised by the EU TACSO 3 project on behalf of the European Commission, DG NEAR. The aim of the event is to provide space for the key stakeholders involved in civil society in the region to come together, network, and offer a platform for discussion of the key topics relevant to civil society this year.

The Forum will take place from 11 to 13 June 2024 at the Hotel Mona Plaza in Belgrade, Serbia.

This year’s Forum will be on the theme of the new momentum for EU enlargement. It will be an opportunity to connect with colleagues from civil society, the European Union, government officials and international partners, to debate and to be inspired.

The agenda includes the following sessions:

  • The EU and civil society in the Western Balkans – the Growth Plan and new momentum for EU enlargement;
  • Launch of the second Assessment against the DG NEAR Guidelines for EU Support to Civil Society in the Enlargement region for 2023;
  • A World Café session for topics proposed by conference delegates;

We encourage all delegates to contribute to the discussion, to work together to find common solutions to current and future challenges, and to come with a “mandate” to represent constituencies or members.
