Short Memo: The Next DELGOSEA Meeting is Coming up
19/06/2013

Taking place from 24 to 25 June in Jakarta and bringing together the DELGOSEA Standing Committee (SC) for Democratic Local Governance, the core members of the DELGOSEA network and guests from ASEAN as well as Indonesian ministries, the upcoming workshop will look at many relevant aspects of DELGOSEA’s work.

Both internal and external aspects of the cooperation will be discussed, with the first part of the meeting given over to finalizing the operating procedures of the Standing Committee, the further exchange of best practices and how to improve national policy advocacy on local governance. In the second half of the workshop, the focus will shift towards DELGOSEA’s relationship with ASEAN: Discussing the relevance of local governance issues for the ASEAN agenda and the potential input from DELGOSEA into the implementation of the future ASEAN charter. A discussion on what issues are coming within ASEAN that are of relevance to the DELGOSEA network and – most importantly – what DELGOSEA can do to support ASEAN’s visibility on the local level will round off the event.
