On 25 and 26 November 2012, the European Asylum Support Office (EASO) held its second Consultative Forum in Malta.

It brought together representatives of civil society organisations, international organisations, EU bodies and national governments. EASO presented its operational plan outlining the framework of the Forum. EASO’s Annual Work Programme, its Annual Report and priorities of engagement, like the setting-up of an early-warning asylum system, crisis support for Greece, intensifying training activities and the progress in its Country of Origin Information (COI) work were also discussed with participants. FRA shared its experience of engaging with civil society, through its Fundamental Rights Platform (FRP), and the workings of its various consultative processes
