RiskMonitor Hosting a Study Visit of Albanian NGOs in Bulgaria

03.07.2017

RiskMonitor Foundation is hosting a study visit of 11 Albanian NGOs June 28-30th, 2017. The study visit is one of the activities within the CIVILISC project, a joint action of IDM, Albania and RiskMonitor. The representatives of Albanian CSOs come from cities in the south of the country (Durres, Vlora, Elbasan, Korce). They are currently implementing projects funded through a sub-granting scheme under CIVILISC.
The visit includes meetings with Ms. Lilia Hristova, Public mediator for the municipality; Ms. Milka Hristova, City Councilor, Deputy Chair of the City Council, and Chairperson of the Standing Committee on Health and Social Policy; Ms. Irina Yordanova, City Councilor and Director of the Municipal Program Europe; Ms. Miryana Malamin-Siriyski (Maria’s World Foundation), Ms. Vanya Nusheva (Transparency International, BG) and Stoyan Mitov (Grajdanite.bg). The participants will also visit the House of Citizens, hosted by Bulgarian Center for Non-for-Profit Law.  Ms. Pavleta Alexieva and Ms. Aylin Yumenova presented the work of the House and BCNL. Albanian delegation also visited the Citizens Participation Forum and met with Ms. Iva Taralezhkova and Ms. Dessi Hristova.

The study visit is planned as a capacity-building event, which will give the Albanian representatives an opportunity to discuss with both public officials from Sofia Municipality as well as with Bulgarian CSOs the mechanisms of cooperation between state and non-state actors; good models of developing anti-corruption initiatives at the local level, as well as innovative ways of engaging citizens in all aspects of public life (advocacy, community mobilization, civic education, networking, etc.)


CIVILISC is co-funded by the Delegation of the European Union to Albania, under the IPA 2014/2015 Civil Society Facility – Civic Initiative and CapacityBuilding, National Programme for Albania.
