Good governance is key to rule of law. And while issues of corruption, transparency, rule of law and good governance are always in the spotlight, there remains a lack of understanding and systemic problems that hardly receive sufficient coverage.
The project aims to raise awareness of such challenges by facilitating cooperation among civic organisations and consolidated strategic efforts for representation.
The ACTION SEE project was created on the basis of the project partners’ experiences gained in the implementation of projects at a national, regional and international level with the aim of strengthening civic organisations for a more efficient and more significant inclusion in the policy creation processes.
ACTION SEE provides a platform for dialogue between significant stakeholders and a concrete tool to measure the degree to which state institutions uphold principles and standards of open governance (openness index).
The project aims to increase the inclusion of civic society and media organisations in decision making processes and the creation of public opinion and policies, as well as to raise the capacity of civic societies to address sensitive issues.
Specific project goals:
- Promote a dynamic civic society which effectively mobilises citizens for active participation in issues related to the rule of law and good governance and affects policies and decision making processes at a national and regional level.
- Strengthen mechanisms for dialogue between civic organisations and government institutions and influence good governance and public administration reforms.
- Stimulate civic and media organisation networking at local and EU level, allowing the exchange of know-how, skills and connections, as well as increase the influence of their representation efforts.
The project is implemented with the financial support of the European Union.
