In the period from December 2019 – June 2020 ISIE has carried out a monitoring of implementation of the Whistleblowers’ Law, Law on Free Access of Public Information, Law on Review of Submissions and Proposals at local level in North Macedonia. These laws are of crucial importance for citizens’ control of the work of local institutions and for strengthening capacities of the local NGOs and citizen activists to implement laws.
Our team has prepared a questionnaire that involved different aspects and explored different methodologies in comparative perspective. A total of 52 questions have been included in the questionnaire and analyzed different institutions (courts, schools, municipalities, hospitals etc.) in Skopje, Tetovo, Stip, Struga and Bitola.
A monitoring report with recommendations has been prepared and published in July 2020. To access the document available in Macedonian and Albanian language please visit our separate resource page.
This project was funded in part through a U.S. Embassy grant.
