European dialogue platform on ethical and
solidarity-based initiatives for combating poverty and social
Examples of good practice of dialogue between public authorities and citizens initiatives in the economy
(good practice sheets)
The good practice
sheets illustrating dialogue and partnerships between local, regional and
national authorities and citizens’ initiatives show how such dialogue can
increase the impact and visibility of such initiatives and offer a certain
legitimacy whilst being included in the objectives of public policies,
particularly social, environmental and global solidarity policies. Furthermore,
these partnerships often show the way to new forms of democracy and concertation.
As they are finalised, the good practice sheets will be posted on this website
under three headings which correspond to the approaches of the platform for
dialogue on ethical and solidarity-based initiatives.
