As the legitimisation of international organisations, as well as other institutions, is being questioned more and more, these institutions are trying to find new ways by which to involve non-state stakeholders—citizens, civil society actors or organised citizens, and private actors—in their decision-making processes. This chapter analyses the rules that govern civil society participation in policy-processes and how the so-called multi-stakeholder approach is implemented. It draws upon some of the results of two surveys directed at civil society organisations (CSOs) that participated in the WSIS-process or in the Convention on the Future of Europe.
