Evaluation of the Draft Action Plan Partnership for Open Government Initiative 2016-2017
Publisher: Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies, Serbia
The Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies has completed an analysis of the Serbian Draft Action Plan of the Partnership for Open Government Initiative, for the period of 2016-2017, as part of a PASOS project on open government in the Western Balkans.
“Given that in the preparation of this draft action plan a greater participation of civil society is noted, and that consultations are still ongoing, we can say that the work of relevant ministries is being done correctly (MDULS),” the report concludes.
“Also, compared with the previous action plan, the current is more in line with the principles of the Partnership for Open Government Initiative, because it shows a greater participation of the public, and the proposed measures and solutions are a qualitative step forward. The main objection is that the adoption and implementation of the proposed action plan requires a longer period of time, and it was a draft version of which the final content will definitely be changed.”
The paper was published ass part of the EU-supported Advocacy for Open Government PASOS project, aimed at encouraging governments in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia to become more transparent, accountable and engaging of citizens.
