We present the brochure "Participatory Democracy" which was developed and published in the project "Strengthen Civil Society At The Local Level To Build Stronger Communities" funded by NED - National Endowment for Democracy and implemented by ALDA - European Association for Local Democracy. The project “Strengthen Civil Society At The Local Level To Build Stronger Communities” is implemented in parallel with the project “AGREED - Activating Government Reform for Enhancing Development”, co-financed by the European Union.
The aim of the brochure is to present and highlight the role of participatory democracy at the local level, the levels of citizen participation, the criteria needed to define civil participation and to demonstrate some successful practices implemented in the Republic of Moldova.
The brochure can be downloaded here.

Only 19% of mobile EU citizens voted to the 2014 European elections. Why? Which barriers EU mobile citizens experience when trying to vote in the host country? Which initiatives have been developed to tackle the issue for next 2019 European elections? This is what the webinar that took place on January 29th has dug into. With their stories and experiences, Thomas Huddlestone, leader of VoteBrussels campaign and research director at the Migration Policy Group, and Anna Zaremba, EU Rights Coordinator at the European Citizen Action Service (ECAS) lead the participants to explore the trends, barriers and initiatives about the exercise of voting rights of EU mobile citizens.
