Continuous and wide-ranging consultations with stakeholders both in GSP beneficiary countries and the EU ensure a high degree of transparency, as well as enrich the analysis with information “from the ground”, and provide feedback on draft results. The main channels for communication and consultation – apart from this website – were:

  • Interviews and surveys, including an online public consultation, with key stakeholders;
  • Workshops in selected GSP beneficiary countries; and
  • Civil society dialogue meetings in the EU.
