• Serbia Progress Report 2016-17

    Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM)

    European Policy Centre – CEP, as the National Researcher of the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) under the Open Government Partnership (OGP), has made Serbia Progress Report for 2016-17 period.

    While the Serbian Action Plan addressed many core open government issues, including access to information and civic space, it mostly lacked transformative commitments. For the next plan, the national actors will need to identify how they can improve the overall ambition, perhaps by closely integrating commitments with the relevant European Union accession requirements.

    The Open Government Partnership (OGP) aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. OGP’s Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) assesses development and implementation of national action plans to foster dialogue among stakeholders and improve accountability.
