On the basis of conducted analyzes and research, organization CRTA, in cooperation with partners from the regional network of civil society organizations „ActionSEE“ , has developed Roadmap on good governance for state institutions in the Republic of Serbia.
The overall openness index of local self-governments in Serbia is at a very low level as self-governments fulfil a total of 39% of indicators, according to the analysis “Openness of local self-governments in Serbia and in the region”.
Judicial authorities in Serbia and in the region fulfil less than one half of openness indicators which leads to a conclusion that an urgent action is needed in order to improve the openness, as found out by the research “Openness of judiciary authorities in the region and in Serbia”.
Serbia held regular presidential elections on April 2nd 2017. The CRTA observation mission “Citizens on Watch”, monitored the entire electoral process (pre-election period, Election Day and post-election period) on the territory of Serbia, as a local independent non-partisan observer.

ACTION SEE on POINT conference: Governments do not understand the importance of the principle of openness
The Index of openness in SEE region, based on the research conducted by the ACTION SEE network, points to many similarities between the neighboring countries.
Because politics is not just for politicians. It is our human and citizen right to participate in the processes of making decisions which influence our lives. A dialogue has no alternative.
Free and fair elections
Because elections are the pillars of democracy. It is every citizen’s right to decide on whom to give his/her vote in free and fair conditions. Our vote is valuable and it can make a difference.
Because institutions serve the citizens. We need strong institutions with integrity which protect the public interest.
Because media should ask questions and critically analyse the reality. We need the media which protect the public interest and tackle the needs of the citizens.
