Azerbaijani Government Officials and CSO Leaders Learn about Bulgarian Civil Society.
November 17, 2014

The new law on public participation, which entered into force in June 2014, opened up new avenues for increased engagement by civil society organizations (CSOs) and other interested actors in policy-making and implementation in Azerbaijan. The implementation of this law provides opportunities to further develop Azerbaijani best practices in engaging citizens and CSOs in decision-making. Learning from other countries’ experiences to ensure meaningful and sustained civic participation at the central and local government level is beneficial for Azerbaijan’s successful implementation of the new law. To this end, in September 2014 a group of Azerbaijani government officials and CSO representatives from the Aran and Ganja-Gazakh regions visited Bulgaria to exchange information and explore Bulgaria’s best practices on mechanisms for citizen participation and cooperation between CSOs and government institutions.
