It provides services to a network of about 150 civil society organizations and citizens on EU citizens’ rights enforcement and civic participation in the EU decision-making process. ECAS strategic plan for the period 2014-2017 is organized along three thematic pillars:

Pillar II – “Open EU Decision-Making”
Objective: Contribute to developing an “engaged EU citizenship” by ensuring improved transparency of EU decision-making and more active citizens’ participation and collaboration in EU policy formulation.
Pillar III – “Engaging the Unengaged”
Objective: Diversify approaches to outreach and engage Central and Eastern European Member States, Citizens and Youth.
