Our missions

Our objectives are to build a genuine European civil dialogue, which is a prerequisite for a civic and popular ownership of European matters and which must be well anchored in institutions’ working methods.

Our Network

The European Civic Forum gathers more than one hundred NGOs and associations in 27 European countries, daily committed to the general interest in various areas. Find out all the network’s members.



The European Civic Space Watch is a collaborative, knowledge-sharing online tool powered by the European Civic Forum contributing to better observing the state of civic space across Europe by gathering together alerts from civil society, existing analyses and institutional resources.
