Continuous and wide-ranging consultations with stakeholders both in Angola 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
  • A stakeholder workshop in Angola.

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 Angola.

In addition, an online survey was undertaken to gather views about Angola's accession to the EU-SADC EPA.
