Are Effects of Reforms in Chapters 23 and 24 More Visible in Practice?

Coalition prEUgovor presents “The Institutional Barometer 2.0”, the second independent attempt at assessing institutional effectiveness at implementing policies within chapters 23 and 24 on Wednesday, 11 December 2019, starting at 11h, at Media Centre (second floor, Terazije 3, Belgrade).

This is the second edition of the Institutional Barometer, which represents a pioneering attempt by the coalition prEUgovor to measure the effects of reforms in Serbia’s EU integration process in practice. At the event, authors will present research results and discuss them with representatives of analysed institutions.

The Institutional Barometer 2.0 analyses six selected institutions that have competencies in the areas covered by chapters 23 and 24: Anti-corruption Agency; Sector for Internal Control of the Ministry of Interior; Commissariat for Refugees and Migrations; Centre for Human Trafficking Victims Protection; Commissioner for Protection of Equality and the Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and Personal Data Protection. The work of institutions relevant for areas covered by chapters 23 and 24 was assessed through the application of a unique methodology that analyses three dimensions of institutional functioning: internal efficiency, institutional embedment and legitimacy of the institution.
