On 25-26 June 2018, FORUM-ASIA, and several of its members, including the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA), the People’s Empowerment Foundation (PEF), the National Commission for Justice and Peace (NCJP), Odhikar, and Globe International, will be attending the EU Partnership Forum 2018 organised by the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium.

The European Commission has developed Framework Partnership Agreements with civil society organisations and associations of local authorities across Africa, Asia, the Pacific, Latin America and Europe, which cover a wide array of fields of intervention: anti-corruption, gender, accountability, human rights, political and social inclusion or economic empowerment, decentralisation, and good and inclusive local governance, decentralised cooperation.

These Framework Partnership Agreements illustrate the commitment of the European Commission to support civil society organisations and associations of local authorities as actors of governance. The agreements encourage actors to contribute to policy-making at regional and global levels, especially in the formulation and monitoring of policies on the implementation and localisation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the European Consensus on Development.

FORUM-ASIA is attending as one of the signatory civil society organisations.
