CEDEM organized a final conference dedicated to the Open Government Partnership

The Center for Democracy and Human Rights (CEDEM) organized a conference on Open Government Partnership in Podgorica on November 17th. The conference was the final activity of the regional project Advocacy for Open Government, implemented by PASOS, in cooperation with partner organizations from the region, with the support of the European Commission.

The conference aimed to contribute to greater visibility of the Open Government Partnership initiative, but also to encourage a constructive debate on how this initiative can affect the increase of transparency and integrity of the public and private sector in Montenegro. The conference consisted of two panel discussions through which the results of the project were presented and evaluated. In addition, through the participation of representatives of partner organizations from the region, experiences in Serbia, Macedonia, Albania and Kosovo were presented.

The event was opened by Nenad Koprivica, MA, Executive Director of CEDEM, Srdjan Kusovac, National OGP Coordinator and Head of the Government Information Bureau and Nikoleta Tomović, Executive Director of the Center for Monitoring and Research (CeMI).

The results of the public opinion poll from November 2016 were presented by CEDEM’s program associate, Ognjen Markovic.

Milica Kovačević (CDT), Marko Sošić (Institut Alternativa) and Dubravka Popović (CeMI) spoke at the conference, and the moderator of the conference was Marija Vuksanović, Project Manager (CEDEM).
