    To engage citizens in the processes on planning, implementation and evaluation of legal regulations, budgets and services in the field of social and economic rights.

  • Strategic priority 1: To engage citizens in the processes on planning, implementation and evaluation of legal regulations, budgets and services in the field of social and economic rights

    We will strengthen capacities of local and national level CSOs to implement the social accountability and legal empowerment methodologies, including Roma CSOs, CSOs working in the health area, CSOs working on gender equality and employment, and CSOs working with different marginalized groups. This will be conducted in order these CSOs to empower and mobilize the communities with which they work in order to strengthen the participation of CSOs and citizens in demanding accountability from the Governmental institutions.

  • Strategic priority 2: To ensure equal access to justice in the field of social and economic rights

    We will empower people and poor and vulnerable communities to take active role in solving their justice problems, and support the implementation of cost-effective alternatives that will help them to resolve their unmet justice needs. ESE will continue to strengthen the capacities of CSO’s providers of legal and paralegal services and promote the concept of community paralegals as informal mechanism of provision of legal aid to enable access to justice to poor, marginalized and vulnerable in our society.

  • Strategic priority 3: To promote fiscal transparency of institutions in the field of social and economic rights

    We will raise public awareness and status of information of citizens by providing information and educational content related to the fiscal transparency and the need for budgeting based on priorities, which will contribute toward strengthening the capacities of the citizens to understand and practice their rights for access to information, better understand how the public system works, better understand the information provided by the public institutions, as well as use the information to hold the government accountable.

Strengthening and practicing human rights, in particular women's rights, is significant to reach an open and responsible society. We achieve our goals for equality and righteousness by controlling the implementation of human rights. Using mechanisms for monitoring of human rights, in particular the instrument of shadow reports, we have been a corrective to the incorrect dispersion womens rights. Recommendations drafted in reports are basis for future activities in the field of improving the overall corpus of human rights, particularly women's rights. As a result of following international documents and their implementation at national level, we have drafted four shadow reports regarding the Convention for Eliminating All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW, 2005), International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR, 2007), International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR, 2007), Convention against Torture (CAT, 2008).

Our recommendations contribute to change and improvement of legislation, policies and the situation in general, for the purpose of effective and equal distribution of human rights and equalities of chance and opportunities.
