EU-ENI Southern Region Conference for the Promotion of an Community of Practice / Brussels

social dialogue and other societal dialogues between the social partners, civil society organisations, local authorities and social dialogue institutions (including ESCs where appropriate) from the Arab region and the EU.

The conference will bring together 150 representatives of the social partners and the other target groups from both shores of the Mediterranean to take stock of the results of the action and to discuss future initiatives and joint actions as a community of practice. A Charter will translate the political will, the recommendations and the possible course of action for a structured cooperation. The Charter will be proposed for approval to the Conference.

The Conference will also constitute the major visibility event of the action and will be used to disseminate results, present tools such as the data base and act as a platform for exchanges and initiatives among co-applicants and other potential partners on social dialogue in the region.

The conference will be organised by the project staff, the regional co-applicants and open to all social partners, civil society organisations, local authorities and social dialogue institutions (including ESCs where appropriate) from the Arab region.
