Guides for citizen participation in the local self government20. December 2011 - 0:00 — Anonymous
Darko Aleksov, MOST Executive Director, said in the presentation that, in spite of the evident need for continuous cooperation between the local authorities and the citizens, the citizens’ involvement in policy and decision-making processes remains low.
“That is the very reason why we at MOST dedicated a significant part of our activities and capacities over the past two years to the issue of greater citizens’ involvement in the functioning of the local self-government”, Aleksov said.
At the same event, MOST also presented its Advocacy Handbook, prepared by Association’s Advocacy Centre Project, supported by the Balkan Trust for Democracy.
Slavica Biljarska Mirčeski, one of the authors of the Handbook, noted that it was seen as an investment in the citiyens and thier skills and knowledge, having in mind that best results are achieved through education, creation of new shared experience and exhange of good practices.
