Technical Assistance to Successful NGOs from the Anti-corruption Grant Scheme
As potential candidate for EU membership, Bosnia and Herzegovina continues to invest efforts into selected key policy priorities in the European integration process, including democratic stabilization, reconciliation and strengthening the civil society at all levels. This project (EuropeAid/129253/C/SER/BA) is implemented within a grant scheme to combat corruption. A set of trainings for the NGO sector in BiH, held since the beginning of this project, ended with the May training in Neum.
The trainer for this Module was Mr. Zlatko Minic, a Board Member of the Anti-corruption Agency in Serbia, nominated by the media and journalists’ associations. This training was highly motivating for the participants. They managed to link theoretical knowledge in the area of monitoring, advocacy and media relations, with personal experience, recognize some common regional issues and relate them to current anti-corruption situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The goal of the project is to contribute to democratic stabilization, reconciliation and further development of Bosnia and Herzegovina by empowering the civil society to participate in the decision making processes at all government levels and in all fields of governance. NGOs working on implementation of anti-corruption projects have to be able to recognize corruption, what are its causes and consequences and what measures are necessary to combat it on systemic and individual level.
