Continuous and wide-ranging consultations with stakeholders both in Chile and the EU ensure a high degree of the SIA’s transparency, as well as enrich the analysis with information “from the ground”, and provide feedback on draft results. The main channels for communication and consultation – apart from this website and social media – are:

  • Interviews and surveys, including online surveys, with key stakeholders;
  • Civil society dialogue meetings in the EU; and
  • Stakeholder workshops in Chile.

We will hold a range of interviews and one-to-one meetings with private sector and civil society organisations and other key stakeholders, both in the EU and Chile.

In addition, three online surveys, aiming at different target groups and focussing on different sustainability aspects of the modernised Agreement, are currently open (until 31 October 2018). Please participate and let us know what you think of the agreement's modernisation! If possible, please use the online version of the survey. For your convenience, PDF versions are also available below which you can print and fill in, and send to us. Many thanks!

A number of workshops in Chile are foreseen during the course of the SIA:

  • A first workshop took place in Santiago on 31 July 2018 and served to present and discuss the study methodology and initial findings as included in the inception report.

 

  • The main stakeholder workshop in Chile took place on 27 September 2018. It served to present and discuss the analysis conducted to date and collect additional information from Chilean interest groups. Documentation of the workshop is currently being prepared.

 

  • In addition, three regional workshops are planned to ensure widespread and ongoing consultation with Chilean stakeholders and to expand geographical outreach. Tentatively, these workshops will take place between late October and mid-November 2018 (in Iquique, Valdivia and Valparaíso).
