Join us for a civil society webchat focusing on media freedom in Europe with Dr. Tomicah Tillemann, Senior Advisor to the Secretary for Civil Society and Emerging Democracies. As part of the State Department’s ongoing commitment to defend civil society worldwide, Secretary Clinton launched a Strategic Dialogue with Civil Society groups on February 16, 2011. The Strategic Dialogue with Civil Society elevated our relationship with nongovernmental organizations to the level of our government-to-government relationships. The Dialogue is an 18-month, ongoing initiative with working groups on empowering women, promoting democracy and human rights, and enhancing transparency and good governance.
This will be a video webchat in English. Questions will be collected in advance as well as during the program.
