Project "Civil Society decides too"


The project "Civil Society decides too", financed by the Delegation of the European Union to Montenegro, IPA 2013 Civil Society Facility Montenegro Programme began in July 2014 and should last 15 months. The project is coordinated by the Centre for Development of Non-Governmental Organisations, Montenegro in partnership with NISPAcee and NGO BONUM, Montenegro.

The overall project objective is to contribute to the higher participation of CSOs in shaping and implementing public policies in Montenegro. So far the following main project activities have been implemented - 5 seminars for Montenegrin civil servants on "Cooperation between state bodies and CSOs"; Creation of the manual for civil servants on the implementation of the Decree on cooperation between state bodies and CSOs; Creation of a manual for civil servants on the implementation of the Decree on conducting public discussions in preparing laws; 6 trainings for Montenegrin CSOs on the "Creation of public policies and Advocacy" and a study visit for representatives of Montenegrin CSOs to Slovakia, organised in June 2015 by NISPAcee. In October 2015, a national conference is planned on "Cooperation between Government and CSOs" in Podgorica, Montenegro.

Both these manuals are available on the NISPAcee web-site:
