European Asylum Support Office’s Consultative Forum meets

On 28-29 November 2016, the Agency attended the European Asylum Support Office’s sixth Consultative Forum plenary meeting.

This annual event brings together representatives from civil society and other selected actors. For the first time the meeting was held in Athens. This allowed participation by civil society actors working in Greece. A participatory methodology was used by EASO which was very successful in collecting concrete ideas for action from participants. The 2016 Consultative Forum marked a turning point in EASO’s collaboration with civil society.
