Current Projects

Project title: Promoting debate on Key Reform 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 overall goal of the project is to support timely and steady implementation of the IMF Program in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Center for Policy and Governance will monitor the implementation of the IMF Program Objectives and Policy Discussions/Measures listed in the Letter of Intent. CPU will inform the public in Bosnia and Herzegovina about the performance of domestic authorities in the implementation of the Program. Additionally, CPU will, where possible, assess whether policies adopted during the Program are in line with the recommendations of the relevant international partners (the IMF, the EU, and the WB). Where this approach is not applicable, the CPU will start the public or hold expert debates in order to assess the quality of the proposed legislation and implications of their adoption.
