Taking into account the Portuguese Presidency of the EU and the EU-Africa Summit, which will take place during the second semester of 2007, the Portuguese NGDO Platform has prepared a project focused on civil society participation in the dialogue between the European and African continents. The project will address three main interconnected themes: Governance, Migration, and Development Co-operation. Its main event will be a Civil Society Forum, gathering together representatives from European and African organisations.
