Focus Groups are constituted within a Working Group to facilitate discussions and the preparation of a first draft, which would be distributed to all members of the Working Group for further comments.

Focus Groups involve a maximum of 10 members of the said Working Group, with a particular interest in the topic committed to dedicate time and efforts in preparing the draft.

Currently, there are two active Focus Groups. You can find below further information about their members and the way they work.
