European Dialogue Consortium



EDC Partners conduct Stakeholder Dialogues in 3 EU countries

Infrastructure decisions are often complex, with many actors involved or affected – and they can often be conflict-laden. In such situations, dialogue and deliberation are what is called for.



IFOK, a member of the EDC network, has developed a tailored approach to stakeholder engagement and dialogue around infrastructure issues and is currently working at a number of locations in Germany to this end. Now, IFOK will be working with additional EDC partners to implement their stakeholder engagement approach in 3 other EU countries – Hungary, Slovakia and Belgium. IFOK will advise clients and partners in these countries on the design, implementation, management and communication of these complex engagement processes. Working with local EDC partners ensures that unique insights, local knowledge and adaptive responses are at the heart of the processes designed.
