Social Card in Montenegro

By creating a single database on (potential) beneficiaries of the social welfare system, through the project entitled “Social Card – Social Welfare Information System”, the Government of Montenegro intends to manage funds from the budget in this area more efficiently; to standardise the decision-making procedure in the field of social rights; to minimise abuse and to ensure a more efficient planning of different programmes intended for use by socially vulnerable population. Not only does the success of reorganisation of work of the centres for social work depend on the implementation of this project, but also the entire reform of the social welfare system.

The goal of this analysis is to indicate the expected effects and challenges of establishing a social welfare information system, as well as to provide recommendations for enhancing the realisation of this project, to which the comparative practice of the countries in the region has contributed partially.
