New Partners for ‘Public Money’ Project in Serbia

Posted on

Three civil society organisations were selected on June 11 as partners on the ‘Public Money for Public Interest’ project which is being conducted by BIRN Serbia, the Independent Journalism Association of Serbia (IJAS) and the Slavko Curuvija Foundation, funded by the European Union.

The organisations selected were the Nis Committee for Human Rights, the Omnibus civic association from Pancevo, and the Sumadija Centre for Civil Activism ‘Res Publika’.

Over the next year, these organisations will have the opportunity to determine what is in the public interest in their communities.

After a restricted call for five local civil society organisations that attended a training course in April, three of them were selected to continue working on the ‘Public Money for Public Interest’ project as sub-grantees.

The overall objective is to contribute to the participation of civil society in changing public policies related to media financing to reflect the rights and interests of the country’s citizens.
