CEP, as the national researcher of the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) under the Open Government Partnership (OGP), has produced the Progress Report 2014-15 for Serbia. The IRM assesses development and implementation of national action plans to foster dialogue among stakeholders and improve accountability.
“Completion of Serbia’s first action plan was relatively high. The government achieved significant reforms in budget transparency and civil society capacity building. However, subnational involvement was a challenge. For the next plan, the Ministry of Public Administration and Local SelfGovernment will need to reach out more proactively to Serbia’s rich nonprofit community and strive to bring subnational governments into the OGP process”, concludes the Report.
