Civil society appeal to Slovak government to stop reallocation of EU Funds to road building
Advocacy letter | 23 February 2011
Authorities in Slovakia are planning to reallocate EU funds initially destined for the support of education, science, employment, regional development, the fight against social exclusion as well as rail development in favour of disputable construction of motorways. (Similar moves are also planned in Poland and the Czech Republic.)
26 Slovakian environmental and social NGOs have called on their government and EU institutions to put a stop to the reallocation. According to the groups, the reallocation is contradictory to both national legislation and EU funds decision-making rules.
