A Recipe for Success: Cookbook on Public Participation
Study | 13 February 2018
On the road towards building democracies, countries of central and eastern Europe have had a wide range of experiences regarding functional (and non-functional!) public participation.
This ‘cookbook’ aims to examine the existing practices of public involvement in decision making process about EU investments across the region.
Based on exchanges of experience and knowledge from Visegrad 4 and Eastern Partnership countries, Bankwatch members and partners reflect on the progress made thus far in their countries toward meaningful public participation.
Illustrated through case studies, we present several conclusions and lessons learned. This cookbook is the product of almost one and half years of exchanges between partner groups of a project funded by the Visegrad foundation and the Dutch Ministry of Environment.
