Members of BPI were part of the expert team in the national project “Better public policies through better knowledge of civil society.” The project was prepared by the Office of the Government Representative for Civil Society as a follow-up to the action plan for the development of civil society. The project was financed by the operational program Effective Public Administration (EVS).The main objective of the project was to enhance the quality of public policy making, resulting in improved public policies, through the use of relevant data and information about the entire civil society. The project consisted of four comprehensive activities:
- Researching the socio-economic aspects of the NGO sector, analyzing the state and trends in the development of civil society, and providing policy recommendations for policymakers.
- Implementing policy-making in a pilot stage to test and refine the proposed policies.
- Developing a proposal to update the common methodology for assessing the effects of proposed regulations, ensuring a more accurate evaluation.
- Creating a proposal for the establishment of a satellite account for the third sector, allowing for a more comprehensive understanding of its contributions.
The project aimed to improve public policy by leveraging comprehensive research, evidence-based recommendations, and innovative approaches to policy-making and assessment. The project aimed to promote more informed and effective decision-making processes by utilizing a multidimensional perspective on civil society.
