WeBER Platform, the regional civil society organisation (CSO) consultation platform on Public Administration Reform (PAR) in the Western Balkans (WB), is the venue for dialogue of CSOs and governments on PAR. In essence, WeBER Platform serves as the platform for consultation and evidence-based dialogue between the civil society, government representatives and international and regional organisations (European Commission, ReSPA, RCC etc.) on PAR. Evidence-informed dialogue and consultations will be sustained through the development and application of the PAR Monitor (see PAR Monitor section).
WeBER Platform is featured by comprehensive regional approach to PAR monitoring and involvement of CSOs at all levels:
WeBER partner organisations are leading the Platform, and CSOs in each of the WB countries became members of the Platform, through Open Call for Applications by CSO’s. WeBER Platform gathers 22 CSOs. The WeBER partner from one country and the selected CSOs from the same country at the same time constitute the “national consortium” for the National PAR Working Group - NWG.
NWGs are national consultative mechanism for participation of civil society in the dialogue with relevant public authorities on design and monitoring of PAR processes in the WB. NWGs are constituted in each of the WB country as national extensions for dialogue on PAR of the wider mechanism - regional WeBER Platform.
NWGs ensure that dialogue on PAR involves all levels of civil society engagement, including national and local level, through participation of locally based CSOs in NWGs. Following the same line, NWGs gather wide network of CSOs in each country, that will participate in discussions and consultations on the PAR Monitor, and address other relevant issues in the PAR area in each country. They are initiated, led and coordinated by the respective WeBER project partners and other CSOs from each country which participate directly in the regional WeBER Platform.
WeBER NWGs gather 183 local CSO members from WB and there is a permanent call for joining the NWG in each of the countries. If you want your organisation to become a member of the NWG, please click here for more information.
