About this grant
The program goal is to support people’s engagement in and awareness of local and national decisionmaking processes and to encourage transparency and accountability of national and local government in Croatia. Building on its success in mobilizing volunteer election monitors, GONG’s work has expanded to three key program areas: monitoring local and national elections and raising public awareness of election processes; increasing public confidence and participation in local and national assemblies; and networking with similar organizations in Central and Eastern Europe and relevant international organizations. Over the past two years, GONG has monitored local elections, provided educational activities for first-time voters in high schools across Croatia, and published a guide and online resource related to public administration. GONG has an office in Zagreb and four regional offices.
