These guidelines aim to strengthen and facilitate participation by individuals, NGOs and civil society at large in political decision making. The document enumerates the conditions and principles that enable active participation as well as the fundamentals of civil participation in political decision making. It also describes different forms of civil participation such as: provision of information, consultation, dialogue and active involvement. It calls on member states to use and disseminate the guidelines to public authorities taking different measures such as: translation of guidelines into national languages, developing user-friendly guides, brochures or other tools, both offline and online, training for civil servants and support for training measures for members of civil society. The appendix to the document lists the Council of Europe’s and other international organisations’ reference texts relevant to the topic of the guidelines.
