ReSPA Director, Ms Maja Handjiska Trendafilova, contributed to the 3rd WeBER Regional Conference “Citizens first: Better administration through citizen consultation,” which focused on citizens and civil societies as partners and contributors in the design and monitoring of public administration reforms in the Western Balkans, as part of the region’s EU integration path.

At the panel, “Citizens' stories / What are citizens telling us?” Director Handjiska called for “enhanced leadership, political commitment and ownership of reforms” and highlighted “the complementary voices of public administration, along with ReSPA's contribution and relevant instruments that support citizen-focused reforms and public administration in the Western Balkans”.

ReSPA stays devoted to strengthening administrations' capacities for running meaningful consultation processes, which result in better policies. “PAR monitoring insights and valuable citizens’ concerns and impressions from their experiences with the administration in the region we heard today will influence our further work on supporting inclusive and transparent PAR policies that meet citizens’ needs”, underlined Director Handjiska.
