Wie geht es weiter mit der Europäischen Bürgerinitive – European Citizens‘ Initiative (ECI)? Diese Frage steht im Mittelpunkt einer Tagung am 10. April 2018 in Brüssel.
The European Citizens‘ Initiative (ECI) is a welcome instrument for participatory democracy at European level. Having been introduced by the Lisbon Treaty, it entered into force in 2012 and allows Europeans to make legislative proposals and participate in decision-making by connecting directly with EU institutions. It is a chance for them to discuss and influence key policies and it sheds further light on the public’s view of the EU’s agenda and priorities.
The ECI Day is an important meeting place and platform where registered and future ECI organisers and stakeholders can exchange information and experiences and present their ECI and activities to the public. As in the past, stands will be available for ECI organisers and conference partners. We will also propose thematic stands run by various stakeholders to present the new initiatives that will accompany the ongoing consultations on the proposal for a new ECI regulation.
