On the back of an initiative by the Mongolian Foundation for Open Society (Soros Foundation) and with the support of the UNDP’s Project on Parliament Strengthening, Prospex was engaged in Mongolia to advise and conduct a series of workshops for citizens engagement and democratic leadership. Prospex trained and consulted representatives from the state and non-governmental organisations in applying the concepts and tools of Citizens as Partners – information, consultation and public participation in policy-making. Over the course of the workshops, participants learned about the best practices in OECD countries, captured in the handbook written by Prospex’s Dr. Marc Gramberger. The handbook is translated and published in the Mongolian language. Participants engaged in targeted simulations, training their skills to turn knowledge into
practice. Identifying the involvement of civil society and citizens as a key element in the development of democracy and prosperity in their country, the process helped participants to recognise the key factors for strengthening relations between government, citizens and civil society.
