No Synopsis    
Title 5th Meeting of the Community of Practice 
Description The Community of Practice on local democracy in the Eastern Partnership countries was established with the aim to strengthen the capacities of local elected representatives to implement best practices in their communities, and in particular:
- to advise on the potential for implementation of the study recommendations ;
- to provide a platform for local authorities to share examples of good practices, initiate peer exchange and network between themselves – (networking);
- to support mayors in promoting more ethical and transparent governance, especially using new modalities, tools and techniques which will foster active citizen participation in local decision making processes – (ethics and participation);
- to guide mayors to successfully apply “lessons learnt” through implementation of ‘local initiatives on ethical governance and transparency’, by introducing higher ethical standards and fostering citizen participation – (coaching).

The Community of Practice involves experts and practitioners in the fields of local governance and ethics, representatives of national associations of local authorities and civil society. It aims to ensure regular communication on national developments and contributes to the support provided to the
on-going process of reform of local government, and promotion of ethical behaviour by locally elected representatives in the region, whilst fostering citizen-oriented dialogue.
