Public participation – experiences from IPA countries
Study | 30 April 2012
In light of the new proposed Regulation for the Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA), Bankwatch has compiled case studies from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia and Serbia to illustrate the lack of political will to properly implement EU principles on public participation. This represents a significant problem in the implementation of the IPA funds in these countries. We therefore call to the European Parliament for proposing a stricter regulation on IPA in respect to the public participation and partnership principle in order to ensure transparent and participatory absorption of the EU funds in these countries.
