Official Project Title: Promoting Debate on Key Public Policies
The Center for Policy and Governance (CPU) will continue promoting public debate on policies affecting Bosnia and Herzegovina’s democratic transition. Through analyzing public policymaking and implementation processes, the CPU will promote open debate on specific policies of major importance for the country’s development, while simultaneously holding decision-makers accountable for their implementation. The CPU will organize 10 public, evidence-based debates titled “ReForum” that will focus on solutions offered by the Reform Agenda – a blueprint for socio-economic reforms developed by the government and the international community.
In light of the country’s 2014 social unrest, a renewed Euro-Atlantic focus on socio-economic reforms in Bosnia and Herzegovina is particularly important, given that a lack of such reforms was at the root of the social dissatisfaction against the political establishment. The CPU will therefore continue to monitor and assess plans, activities, and progress made by the government under the Reform Agenda.
Project is supported by National Endowment for Democracy (NED).
