Azerbaijan and EU Civil Society Discuss "NGO Working Environment in Azerbaijan"

50 NGO from the European Union (EU) and the Azerbaijan participated in the Civil Society Human Rights Seminar "Working Environment for NGOs in Azerbaijan" held on 21-22 June. The two-day seminar was organised as a concrete follow up of the EU-Azerbaijan Political Dialogue on Human Right and Democratisation issues initiated in December 2010.

"Promotion of human rights and rule of law is a cornerstone of our work. The seminar provides an opportunity to share EU experience and good practices. This is what the EU does best: proposing, not imposing, innovative approaches which can benefit local NGOs, if they wish so, " said Jerome Pons, Charge d'Affaires of the EU Delegation at the opening ceremony.
