Together with the partners from the TEN Network – Centre for European Policy (CEP) from Belgrade and European Policy Institute (EPI) from Skopje, Institute Alternative will conduct a research about the connection between the policy evaluation and the performance audit in the coming year.
The project “Policy Evaluation and Performance Audit – On the Same or Parallel Tracks?” was supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) within the framework of the Regional Research Promotion Programme in the Western Balkans (RRPP). The RRPP is coordinated and operated by the Interfaculty Institute for Central and Eastern Europe (IICEE) at the University of Fribourg.
The RRPP aims to strengthen research capacities in the field of social sciences in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia, by fostering specific reforms in these countries based on identifying the long-term implications of potential policy choices.
The project “Policy Evaluation and Performance Audit – On the Same or Parallel Track?” is focused on the analysis of these two mechanisms in Montenegro, Serbia and Macedonia, as well as on the research of comparative practices in the six European Union member states. The findings of our research will be presented at the regional conference marking the completion of the project, which will be held in Belgrade, as well as at the International Conference on Public Policies, which will be held in Milan, in July 2015.
Each partner organization participated at the introductory seminar for supported projects held at the RRPP Local Coordination Unit in Serbia – Institute of Economic Sciences in Belgrade, on July 10, 2014. Research Coordinator Jovana Marović participated at the seminar in front of Institute Alternative.
