2020 Consultations

An important method for communicating with civil society takes place on the basis of electronic consultations. The Consultative Forum members are consulted on many of EASO's key documents. Electronic consultations are open to all members of the Consultative Forum and are used as much as possible as they ensure the broadest possible outreach, facilitating organisations to contribute in a cost-effective manner. Additionally, some consultations may also, for various reasons, be restricted to selected CF members. In those cases, selection is carried out on the basis of the following set of selection criteria:

  • Relevance – of the organisation’s participation vis-à-vis the theme(s) discussed by the Consultative Forum.
  • Knowledge and Expertise – degree of knowledge and expertise in the area(s) being dealt with by the Consultative Forum.
  • Availability – of the organisation to get involved in the work of the Consultative Forum.
  • Involvement at national and EU level – degree of involvement of the organisation in the relevant area(s) at national and EU level (European orientation).
  • Affiliation – of the organisation in relevant networks/groups.
  • Relationship – of the organisation with EASO and/or involvement in EU Practical cooperation measures/training/academic activities in the field of asylum.
