29.07.2021 11:00 Civic Energy Center, Mitrovica/ONLINE event via Zoom Finished

It is with great pleasure that NGO AKTIV invites you to a panel discussion on the results of research carried out on citizens’ perception of corruption and transparency in six (6) Serb-Majority municipalities. The research was implemented within the framework of the project Enhancing Transparency and Rule of Law in Serb-Majority Municipalities in Kosovo implemented by NGO AKTIV, financed by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) and in partnership with the Advocacy Center for Democratic Culture (ACDC). The goal of the research was to examine and analyze residents’ views of corruption and transparency at the level of local governance in the targeted municipalities. Based on the results, AKTIV and members of the anti-corruption group created as part of the project launched a series of small-scale civil society initiatives geared at raising public awareness of issues covered by the project. The panel discussion will include representatives of local civil society organizations and media outlets that recently launched initiatives, the Kosovo Anti-Corruption Agency, INL as well as NGO AKTIV and NGO ACDC.

The discussion will be held on Thursday, the 29th of July on the premises of the Civic Energy Center (CEC) in North Mitrovica and will last from 11:00 until 12:30. The event will be of a hybrid character, with a limited number of spaces available for a live audience due to COVID-19 restrictions and for others to join via the Zoom platform.
