Enhancing dialogue between citizens and policymakers in Estonia
In recent yeas it has become more important for PRAXIS to actively promote public debate and citizen participation in policy development. In 2008 we started organizing regular policy seminaries and debates "Praxise Mõttehommik" to endorse dialogue between civil sector interest groups and policymakers. These policy debates were supported by PRAXIS' independent evidence based policy briefs analyzing the implementation of the Government programme and recent developments of different social, economic and politicalp topics.
PRAXIS’ experts also published articles and used new internet media tools, that were familiarized into Praxis' usual communications to facilitate interactive and broarder dialogue.
By now this project is formally over, but we see there is still need for such dialogue facilitation between different parties of different policies. Thus there are more policy debates to come on actual subjects and on PRAXIS' research. For more information please contact Maiu Uus.
