About WeBER2.0

Western Balkan Civil Society Empowerment for a Reformed Public Administration – WeBER2.0

WHAT

Western Balkan Civil Society Empowerment for a Reformed Public Administration – WeBER2.0 – is a three-year project (2018-2021) funded by the European Union.
It relies on the results of WeBER – the Western Balkans Enabling Project for Civil Society Monitoring of Public Administration Reform, a three-year project that was implemented from 2015 to 2018, funded by the European Union and co-funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

WHO

WeBER2.0 is implemented by the Think for Europe Network (TEN) composed of EU policy oriented think tanks in the Western Balkans. European Policy Centre (CEP) from Belgrade is the coordinator of the Project. By partnering up with the European Policy Centre (EPC) from Brussels, WeBER will ensure EU level visibility.

WHY

This project’s goal is to enhance CSO engagement in PAR by advancing evidence-based monitoring of PAR in line with EU requirements. It will also strengthen CSO-government dialogue at the regional, national, and local levels based on the established WeBER Platform, which will be further enhanced, particularly by introducing online consultations. WeBER2.0 will also improve CSOs’ capacities to engage in PAR and to ensure their constructive relationships with governments through joint training on citizen consultations, addressing the challenge of bringing the administration closer to citizens.
