Toolkit for engaging with Europe 2020 and the European Semester

25 Jul 2014, keywords :

In July 2014, the EU Alliance for a Democratic, Social and Sustainable European Semester (Semester Alliance) has published its Toolkit for Engaging in Europe 2020 and the European Semester.

Toolkit for engaging with Europe 2020 and the European Semester

While the toolkit is aimed at national members of the European organisations which constitute the Semester Alliance, CESI believes the information is crucial for all trade unions and civil society to enhance understanding of the processes and impact of European economic governance in 2014 and beyond.

The toolkit is designed to support national organisations in engaging with Europe 2020 and the European Semester, including the upcoming Mid-Term Review, to follow a public consultation which CESI will participate in.

The toolkit provides to-the-point information about the processes and the opportunities for engagement, by clarifying the key elements, timeline, and strategic actors of the new process, as well as giving links and suggesting different ways of involvement.
