COPE has already initiated the establishment of a National Stakeholder Committee (NSC) in each partner’s country (except Norway). NSCs will collaborate closely in COPE at the national level. Chaired by the consortium member in the country, the stakeholder committees will meet at the national NSC meetings, the stakeholder conference (together with Local Stakeholder Committees) and the final conference. The rationale in the nomination process was to represent stakeholders from the most relevant national organisations involved in multilevel governance to combat poverty. The participating stakeholder representatives have declared their substantial interest in transnational comparisons of the multilevel governance of active inclusion policies and thus in the dissemination of COPE’s findings.
