General information

The involvement of members of society in the processes of public governance is the driving force of a democratic society, and in each democratic country, this process is promoted in various ways. The participation of the community on equal terms with other partners strengthens the links between people, business, public authorities, and increases mutual trust between stakeholders in various sectors. The opportunity to address challenges is passed on to the people who experience them, but they are not expected to address those challenges on their own. They receive help in making connections and negotiating with those who have more ability to do so.
