European Centre in Albania, member of NOSA, engages itself in the appeal launched by the European Parliament to the Albanian Government through its latest report and the consent granted to the Stabilization and Association Agreement with Albania.
European Centre, with the assistance of the Open Society Foundation office in Brussels, carried out a meeting with Mr. Z. Thomas Ilves, Rapporteur for Albania at the European Parliament and successfully managed to suggest and add significant messages with regard to the participation of the civil society as an important actor in the process of reform and development of Albania. The following paragraph is part of the report of the European Parliament and of the press communication provided by this institution:
« The Parliament encourages the Albanian Government to enable the participation of the civil society in the formulation of policies, in the monitoring and implementation of these policies and in the efficiency for all levels of governance in order to improve the quality and credibility of reforms. This serves as well to increase transparency and accountability».
