Semester Alliance’s Toolkit for Engaging in Europe 2020 and the European Semester

2014-semester-alliance-toolkit-coverIn July 2014, the EU Alliance for a Democratic, Social and Sustainable European Semester (Semester Alliance), which AGE platform is part of, publishes its Toolkit for Engaging in Europe 2020 and the European Semester. Aimed at the national members of the European organisations which constitute the Semester Alliance, it is designed to support them in engaging with Europe 2020 and the European Semester, including the upcoming Mid-Term Review.

AGE Platform Europe contributes regularly to the work of the alliance on the basis of inputs from member, in particular their recommendations on the National Reform Programmes (NRPs) and the Commission’s country Specific Recommendations (CSRS) – see below links to our work on the European semester.

The toolkit provides to-the-point information about the processes and the opportunities for engagement, by clarifying the key elements, timeline, and strategic actors of the new process, as well as giving links and suggesting different ways of involvement. The main toolkit is accompanied by 5 helpful annexes:

  1. The European Semester in a nutshell
  2. Who to contact
  3. Template letter
  4. Glossary of terms and acronyms
  5. List of useful stakeholder engagement quotes – from EU documents
