The recommendations are based on their perspectives and addressed to the EU atlarge European Commission, the Dutch government and Non-Governmental Organisations in order for them to best support the democratic transitions in the region. These perspectives were the subject of lively and inspiring debates at a seminar at the University in Amsterdam on April 18th, 2011 and advocacy meetings on April 19th and 20th, 2011 with Dutch and European policy makers in the Hague and Brussels respectively.
