MEP Marina Kaljurand looks forward to cooperation with Georgian political parties

The Member of the European Parliament Marina Kaljurand echoed her appointment as co-facilitator for the Jean Monnet Dialogue process in Georgia.

“Proud to accept the nomination, looking forward to a close cooperation with all political parties and MPs of the Georgian Parliament,” the MEP tweeted.

The European Parliament appointed Marina Kaljurand and Miriam Lexmann as co-facilitators for the Jean Monnet Dialogue process in Georgia. Together with MEP Viola von Cramon, MEPs will help build a dialogue and improve democratic parliamentary culture in the Georgian parliament.

The Jean Monnet Dialogue for Peace and Democracy is an instrument developed by the European Parliament as a soft tool in parliamentary mediation and dialogue.

With the Jean Monnet Dialogue, the European Parliament strengthens the ability of political leaders to develop true inter-party dialogue and to build the consensus necessary for generating a democratic parliamentary culture and trust.

The Dialogue complements traditional capacity-building programmes and contributes to institutional reform processes. It also provides a platform for political group leaders to seek consensus on national priority policies. Named after one of the founders of the EU and a strong supporter of European Unity, the Jean Monnet Dialogue was launched in October 2016 at Monnet’s own house in Bazoches-sur-Guyonne.
