1. Background

The European Network of Political Foundations (ENoP) is a cooperation structure, serving as a communication and dialogue tool between the European political foundations and the Institutions of the European Union (EU), as well as civil society actors in the fields of democracy support and development cooperation. Furthermore, the network provides services to its members to facilitate their participation in the respective programmes of the EU.

ENoP brings together 54 member foundations from 22 European member-states and the UK. The members are affiliated to six political party families represented in the European Parliament (Renew Europe, EPP, S&D, ECR, Greens/EFA, GUE/NGL), but are independent in their decision-making and financing of international projects.

The Get Involved! Project constitutes a pilot initiative of the Europe Commission, aimed at exploring the avenues for collaboration with political parties in partner-countries through a multi-party approach. The objective of the project is to empower women in politics across political party lines in two target countries, namely Morocco and Benin.

In the context of the project specificities and as part of its activities, ENoP together with member-foundation IJEK (consortium partner) have committed to implementing a 4-day online event for a selected number of project participants from Morocco and Benin. The objective of the event is to contribute to reconciling the results of the project and trainings delivered across political party affiliations as well as to bring participants from the different political parties together for a joint exchange of best practices.

The online event will take place between 25 and 28 October 2021 with participants from Morocco, Benin and Europe (Brussels).

The activities of political foundations in the fields of democracy support and development cooperation include public campaigning and awareness raising, advocacy work vis-à-vis political institutions and decision makers in their respective home countries, as well as the EU level.
