EESC hearing on challenges for financing civil society

The Agency will speak at a public hearing organised by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) on ‘financing civil society organisations by the European Union’, on 6 September in Brussels.

The goal of the hearing is to present working solutions and come up with recommendations for revised financial regulations and the future Multiannual Financial Framework after 2020 that would enable better civil dialogue, and easier and more transparent access to resources. The EESC will present an own-initiative opinion on this topic later in autumn. FRA is currently drafting its report on civil society space in the EU, which will be presented towards the end of 2017.
