    CONCORD Europe – Publication on EU Presidency with Related Training Materials, Bruxelles

    Luogo di lavoro


    Scadenza: 14 luglio 2017

    CONCORD is looking for a consultant to research and produce a publication on the decision-making processes within the European Institutions, particularly focusing on how CONCORD fits into this picture where development policy is concerned, and how they link to the six-monthly presidency periods. Accompanying the publication will be training materials for our members to introduce this publication to their members, and ensure the information reaches the largest number of our partners possible.

    Aims and objectives/Main responsibilities and tasks

    CONCORD aims to give national platforms in countries holding the EU presidency the tools they need to to exploit this period as an exciting opportunity to make an impact on their country’s and Europe’s role in international development.

    They expect to be able to provide them with an up-to date guide that clearly outlines the way CONCORD works with the European institutions to influence development policy, and how the presidency period timetable fits into this landscape. They would also like the publication to be a relevant tool for newcomers to CONCORD’s confederation, and for all members who wish to better understand how CONCORD functions.

    They plan to use the associated training material to introduce the guide to the national platform members in countries that will soon hold the presidency, and then to make it freely available for members to use with their own members.


    Research phase: This could include interviews with key stakeholders, as well as desk research in order to provide up to date information on the EU institutional environment and how CONCORD/the presidencies fit in.

    Drafting phase: This could include opportunities for feedback on draft versions from staff or members of CONCORD if required. Training materials development: This could include a trial of the training materials with a test group of CONCORD members.
