CECOE’s Panel Discussion


As part of its preparation work to engage in the national dialogue that is planned to occur in the coming months, The Coalition of Ethiopian Civil Society Organizations for Elections organized a one–day panel discussion on March 10, 2022; whereby the role of Civil Society Organizations in national dialogue was deliberated.


Participants from civil society organizations, the government, and the European Centre for Electoral Support, among other international partners, attended the consultation workshop.


Panel Discussion on the Role of Civil Society Organizations in National Dialogue supports the national dialogue processes by increasing awareness and providing discussion spaces.


National dialogues are often convened to facilitate political reforms, draft or amend constitutions, promote peace-making, and encourage the face-to-face exchange of information among people in order to foster mutual understanding.
