Report: GOOD GOVERNANCE IN EDUCATION
SEEU together with UNDP work on the realization of the project “Strengthening evidence-based policy processes”. This project aims to contribute to more effective policy-making in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia through the preparation processes of the “People-centred Analyses” report series. The objective of the report is to provide professional in-depth analyses and forward-looking policy options based on regular monitoring of citizen’s perceptions of key social, economic, governance and inter-ethnic developments, of issues that affect their lives.
The People-centred Analyses issue Nov. 2010 will continue to examine the trends and social inclusion aspects as initiated from its first issue of March 2008 (prepared by UNDP) and then continued to the second issue April 2009 (jointly prepared by UNDP and SEEU).
The current project is implemented by South East European University of Tetovo (SEE University) being the Responsible Party, who will coordinate the production of the Report, provide research support and promote independent research and collaboration with other research and think-tank institutions in promoting the concept of “People-centred Analyses”.
The new component of project is Governance Assessment. The value of a nationally owned governance measurement system is that it serves as a critical accountability mechanism for local stakeholders, especially the citizens of a country and non-state actors. Nationally owned systems provide upward internal rather than external pressure for reform. Therefore, in view of the above and having in mind the results achieved so far with the ongoing People –Centred Analyses, UNDP and the South East European University with the support of the Global Programme on Capacity Development for Democratic Governance Assessments and Measurement, will undertake the activities that relates to the definition and implementation of a specific governance assessment. These activities consist of development of a nationally owned methodology for governance assessment and related capacity building activities of local pool of trainers and researches to conduct the assessment.
