Meeting and Advocacy training with Open Society Foundations
6-9 February 2017, Barcelona

Open Society Foundations (OSF) organised the joint meeting with active organisations from US and EU on Addressing Anti-Muslim Sentiment.

The purpose of the US-EU joint NGO meeting was for an exchange of experiences between OSF grantees on both sides of the Atlantic and also to work on common strategies and actions to amplify both our work.

Amongst the topics that were discussed, we looked deeper at the increase in far-right rhetoric and the obstacles it makes for the work of Muslim civil society.

The meeting and Advocacy Training was great opportunity to learn new advocacy techniques and strategies, to develop new ties to US allies and like-minded organisations and increase our capacities to build partnerships with other similar organisations in Europe as well as to work on common projects and initiatives.
