European Committee on Democracy and Governance (CDDG): Mission and meetings

 

Since 1 January 2014, the European Committee on Democracy and Governance (CDDG) is responsible to implement the Council of Europeís intergovernmental work in the field of democratic governance. It is a forum where senior officials meet to share information, views and good practice on issues concerning citizensí democratic participation, democratic governance and the modernisation of public administration, public finances and transfrontier cooperation. The Committee also responds to requests from member States for targeted activities of exchange and assistance (for instance through peer reviews or thematic workshops).

Under the authority of the Committee of Ministers, the overall aim of the CDDG is to share information about national policy, disseminate best practice and develop, as appropriate, proposals for standards in the field of its activities and competence.
