What we do

 

We are striving to overcome the following conditions

No citizens participation into the processes of planning, implementation and evaluation of legal regulation, budgets and service

The state continually fails to ensure citizens participation into the processes of planning, conduction and monitoring of the policies and budgets related to the fulfillment of the social and economic rights. Namely, there is no established legitimate, non-selective and continuous process of citizens’ involvement in the operation of central and local government. MORE...

No equal access to justice

The state failure to progressively realize social and economic rights is closely related with the failure to promote and establish effective access to justice for marginalized and vulnerable groups in our society. We cannot discuss about the effective implementation of social and economic rights if the position of the most vulnerable groups in the society has not changed, and they are still facing significant barriers when approaching the system of justice.

Monitoring transparency and accountability of public institution

Transparency is a window to budget operations of the state, helping the public call for accountability of institutions responsible. MORE...
