Praxis Participated in the Second Meeting of the National Working Group for Monitoring Public Administration Reform in Serbia

Praxis participated in the second meeting of the National Working Group (NWG) for Monitoring Public Administration Reform (PAR) in Serbia held in Belgrade on 26 October 2017.

As an introduction to the NWG meeting, a workshop was held for representatives of civil society organisations (CSOs) implementing research projects within the framework of WeBER Small Grants Programme, during which they exchanged their experiences of the previous implementation of these projects and presented research progress and findings related to PAR monitoring at the local level.

Milijana Trifković from Praxis and Danijela Jović from Centre for Balanced Regional Development – Cen TriR spoke on behalf of the CSO recipients of small grants for PAR monitoring at the local level. The former presented the first findings of research on transparency of local self-government bodies and implementation of the new Law on Administrative Procedure in the City of Kraljevo, while the latter presented the findings of the current employment practice, the impact in the field of human resource management, as well as the civil society’s views of these issues in Užice, Požega and Gornji Milanovac.

The NWG is a national consultative mechanism for dialogue between the civil society and relevant public authorities on the design and monitoring of the PAR process in the Western Balkan countries. The National Working Groups have been established in each of these countries as part of a wider WeBER platform. More details about the NWG in Serbia are available here.

WeBER (Western Balkans Enabling Project for Civil Society Monitoring of Public Administration Reform) is a three-year project financed by EU and co-financed by the Kingdom of the Netherlands. More details about the project are available here.
