Following the years of wars and dissolution of former state organization, transitional changes of our public administration and judicial system have often been associated with complicated and inefficient procedures, lack of transparency and accountability towards the ordinary citizens as the primary beneficiaries of their services. For almost a decade, activists of YIHR and 35mm have been supporting citizens in defending their civil and human rights, assisting them in overcoming the problems of poor institutional cooperation and inappropriate interpretation of legal norms as well as tardiness and lack of responsibility of individual civil servants.
They have supported, protected and strengthened information flow between citizens and institutions, providing them with free legal aid and promoting their rights through targeted media advocacy activities. They have scrutinized the efficiency and transparency of public services towards the common citizens and especially marginalized groups. They have informed, sensitized and raised awareness of public and decision makers about human rights, citizenship, and accountability of government and efficiency of its institutions. They have built capacities of civil society representatives, politicians and journalists and promoted their networking.
Their societies are overflown with well-spoken but not practiced concepts of citizens’ courage, civic action, public interest, citizens’ and government’s responsibility, respect and reinforcement of human and citizens’ rights, civic values, accountability of elected representatives, sustainable and responsible use of resources. They are determined to make those concepts reality.
Montenegro is civil and democratic society based on the rule of law. Montenegro is developing as the society of active and informed citizens while public institutions function in accordance with positive legal regulations aiming at achieving public interest.
Civic Alliance (CA) efficiently contributes to establishing civil and democratic society, through strengthening capacities and support to civil initiatives, protection and promotion of human rights and the control of work of public institutions
Truth, justice, peace, tolerance, responsibility, equality, team work, activism, transparency, constant learning, and cooperation.
