Democracy, Social Cohesion and Global Challenges Committee
The key challenges in Europe and worldwide in the years ahead will inevitably involve the governance and future of territories, the cohesion, protection and well-being of human beings and the resilience of land and communities in individual countries. Tackling them is a task for those who govern us and also for our NGOs, at local, national and European level.
The Democracy, Social Cohesion and Global Challenges Committtee proposes a strategy based on strong partnership with all the relevant stakeholders focusing on four areas of action: promotion of civil society participation in political decision-making, prevention of corruption, protection of human beings and human dignity, and solidarity in responding to risks.
- Participation in democratic decision making
- Preventing corruption by engaging civil society
- Gender perspectives in political and democratic processes
- Transversal group on social and territorial cohesion
