Monitoring EU policies: a systematization report


This report systematises  ACT Alliance EU and CIFCA Networks’ joint experience of monitoring EU policies between 2014 and 2016.

It aims to share the Networks’ experiences and to strengthen their joint work, show their achievements and share lessons learned. The working experiences gathered together in this report are not limited to policy monitoring; they include joint actions, coordination and social mobilisation, public outreach and communication, and advocacy work.

The report consists of three sections:

– The first section offers an explanation of public policy monitoring and ways in which it can be done.

– The second section sets out four case histories, offering an understanding of the joint monitoring work carried out by the networks. We have selected four relevant cases as examples among the many which exist.

– The third section presents a series of lessons that have become apparent as a result of the systematisation and analysis process for this report.

The report is available in English and Spanish.
