Open Government Partnership

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an initiative launched in 2011 with the aim of improving government openness around the world, which Serbia joined in 2012. The European Policy Centre (CEP) has been involved in the initiative since 2013, when the first Action Plan for the implementation of obligations under the OGP was adopted, with the task of monitoring the implementation process of action plans. So far, the Government of Serbia has adopted four action plans, for which CEP has produced multiple reports. The European Policy Centre participates in the Open Government Partnership (OGP) initiative as an independent observer of the implementation process of the Action Plan for the implementation of the OGP and is in charge of preparing a report on the results through the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM).

CEP represents the local branch of the global IRM for Serbia and carries out independent monitoring, observation and reporting of the process of adoption and implementation of action plans. In its work, CEP maintains regular contact with state institutions that are holders of obligations, as well as civil society that is involved in the process within the Special Interministerial OGP Working Group. CEP coordinates its work with the global IRM, while the reports it works on are open to public debate before final publication. The goal of the project is to provide a clear insight into the process of opening the government and help the Government in its efforts to fulfil the obligations assumed from the action plan.
