    Goals / Remit

    CIDSE is an international family of Catholic social justice organisations from Europe & North America
    working together for global justice. Central to CIDSE’s policy formulation and advocacy is its member organisations’ work with local partner organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Contributing to the fight against poverty and inequality, as well as bringing about sustainable development and well-being by challenging global structural injustices are key elements of CIDSE’s mission, which we attempt to achieve through joint advocacy, campaigning and development cooperation work. Our current priority issues are food sovereignty and land justice, corporate power impunity, the relationship between energy and extractivism and their intersections with human rights; decolonisation; feminism; climate and biodiversity justice; economic and political systems, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

    Main EU files targeted

    The main EU policies followed by CIDSE work relate to food security, energy and climate change, business and human rights, trade and investment policies (EU Mercosur Agreement), Agenda 2030, respect for International law in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory.

    CIDSE’s strategic framework (2016-2021) has been extended until the end of 2022. (see here http://www.cidse.org/articles/rethinking-development/new-strategic-framework-the-cidse-network-embarks-on-a-new-adventure.html).
    A mid-term review of the CIDSE strategic framework was carried out during the first half of 2019 which reconfirmed CIDSE’s overall strategy and objectives.

    A s a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, CIDSE had to adapt its policy and advocacy work in 2020; physical events were cancelled and replaced by online meetings and webinars. The crisis confirmed CIDSE’s systemic approach and the interconnectedness of its thematic priorities.

    A Framework Partnership Agreement was signed with the European Commission – Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development (DG-DEVCO) in November 2018. The contract officially started on 1st January 2019 and will cover a period of 54 months.

    CIDSE is also a 'Global CSO" member of the European Commission Policy Forum on Development, a space for civil society related to EU development cooperation.
