Equipping members and their national counterparts to advocate towards European policymakers on issues concerning humanitarian action, sustainable development, peacebuilding, and the role of faith-based organisations.

EU-CORD members are looking to extend their advocacy reach, advocate in partnership with others, and impact the policy and practice of the European Union. This programme achieves this by deepening awareness amongst members of each other’s advocacy initiatives, connecting members working on similar issues and linking members with advocacy opportunities at the EU level.

  • Develop an agile and responsive advocacy approach that supports members own advocacy initiatives.
    • Our member-led advocacy approach relies on members identifying and committing to advocacy initiatives with secretariat support. This is outlined in our Advocacy Approach & Criteria, 2022.
  • Build partnerships with EU-CORD members and other organisations working on similar goals.
  • Maintain oversight of critical policies, events, and opportunities that we can influence.
  • Build on existing partnership arrangements and develop relationships with EU Institutions and National Government development/humanitarian agencies in Europe and partner countries.

Vaccine Inequality

Vaccine Inequality

COVID-19 and its continuing impact is a cross-cutting issue for EU-CORD members. This is primarily because of the need for vaccines to be made available in our partner countries so staff and programmes can run effectively and safely. EU-CORD has therefore joined the campaign advocating for a COVID-19 temporary TRIPS waiver initiated by Caritas Europe and supported by other faith networks active in Brussels. In this framework, in July 2021, EU-CORD signed an open letter to the European Commission together with other faith-based organisations. You can learn more about our efforts for vaccines for all here.
