Projects Combatting Barriers for Exit and Network 23
One of the most successful EPI projects, the Combatting Barriers for Exit: Roma at the Macedonian Borders has just ended, leaving a positive impact.

The project is in support of the Network 23, which is a network of CSO’s whoich are actively working in the areas of judiciary, fundamental rights, and fight against corruption.

My money – my budget visualisation
Institut Alternativa present new web portal — www.mojnovac.me – the very first visualization of the state budget in Montenegro prepared by the civil society. Data scattered over various websites, buried in a bunch of tables and locked in scanned PDFs, unsearchable and without explanations, cannot be of great use to citizens. They decided to “unlock” the data – to convert official documents into a searchable, citizen-friendly database that will allow anyone to quickly find an answer to budgetary questions at a single place.
