To conclude their two-day meeting, the participants of the “Active Citizenship, Visegrad and Central Europe” conference came together on September 6, 2013, for a final summing-up discussion about the role of civil society and civil activism in their own countries and in international cooperations among the countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
Our Future Plans with IVF: Project „Leadership“
We would like to find out how are politicians rooted in the civil society and what impact it has on re-election of politicians and on development of the region/municipality (is there any relationship between activity of CSOs, political representation and local development?)
- with the exception of political level, cooperation between V4 and WB has not been regular nor dynamic. That should change.
- coordination of official development assistance and its targeting still remains a challenge,
- more emphasis should be put on the creation of the Western Balkan Fund,
- sectoral cooperation should be intensified (especially in the area of energy, justice, internal affairs),
