MetadataVis full innførsel
The aim of this study is to provide a better understand ing of the role of nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) and the relationship between the NGOs and the Norwegian government, in the issue area of European policies. Two ongoing processes form the background for this project: On the one hand, the Norwegian government is attempting to strengthen the involvement of NGOs in national policy-making in relation to EEA/EU policies. On the other hand, EU has initiated a process in order to improve and develop its relationship with NGOs at the European level. Although these processes are independent of each other, there are parallels and possible connections in some areas.
