EIFE and e-forums, and Porto Alegre Meeting
March 2002 - April 2003


Interpretation of the 19 appraisals and 11 comments.

There was a large measure of objection to the fact that many of the participants in the Lille Assembly had not participated in the previous work of the Alliance and it was added that many of the participants in Lille didn't even know the Alliance.

Along the same lines, most also considered (although a large number of appraisals showed disagreement with this) that in many cases the Proposal Papers were not adopted by the participants of the Assembly.

Almost everyone also considered that there should have been some thought on how to organize action proposals. One comment explained that this was probably done in some of the workgroups. In spite of this, it was also pointed out (with some opinions to the contrary) that if the Proposal Papers had been sent to the participants with more advance time, everyone would have read them and it would have been possible to move on to strategic considerations more quickly.

There was a lot of difference of opinions on the methodology that was used. Among the more unfavorable positions, there was some criticism of its clarity and efficiency. Similarly, some spoke of having wasted intellectual energy, having lacked a methodology to face the thematic diversity, etc., and even of a method that was far too ambitious and pre-planned, and depended on a logistics based on non-professional volunteers.

The appraisals also showed a lot of agreement and relative agreement (there were no opinions in disagreement) with the statement that Lille was a great meeting and featured a lot of experience sharing and exchange of ideas. Despite that, there were just as many favorable as unfavorable opinions when it came to saying that it had fulfilled the expectation of an intense and synergetic articulation.

Lastly, it was claimed unanimously (with 1 abstention) that the Allies should be informed of the recommendations and proposals that resulted from Lille.
