What have we done already

The current policy framework for strengthening civil society by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is set to conclude in 2025. Over the past years, Partos, in collaboration with its members and international experts, has collected insights and developed recommendations to make the new policy framework for 2026 and beyond more inclusive, flexible, and, above all, effective. These insights include:

  1. General consultation by Partos among its members on the policy framework (2023).
  2. Policy paper with concrete recommendations from the Partos Shift the Power Lab to make the policy framework more inclusive and flexible (2022/2023).
  3. Voices on Power – interviews with recommendations from the Partos Shift the Power Lab by Southern leaders (2023).
  4. Dreampaper from the Partos Shift the Power Lab highlighting key issues from the ‘Power of Voices’ policy framework (2021/2022)

Consultation on ‘Feminist PMEL’

The consultations will cover on four themes widely supported by civil society and Southern partners: Agenda setting, Risk management, Accountability, Feminist PMEL. We will further specify the recommendations that were sourced from the ‘Bright Ideas Contest’.

This consultation will focus on ‘Feminist PMEL’.
