SUMMARY

Through the establishment of a Common Platform, trainings, and advocacy campaigns, this Project contributed to the strengthening of CSOs dealing with anticorruption in SMEs and entrepreneurship.

RESULTS

• An analysis of policies and their implementation was conducted – the document "Less corruption, more jobs – how to improve procedures/programs/projects" outlines the main findings and recommendations. It was distributed to 166 relevant institutions throughout the State. • A Common Platform to fight corruption was set up. It unites associations of workers and employers and CSOs, which can develop concrete improvements to SME-related policies and programs, and propose them to BiH institutions. In 2012, the Common Platform counted 27 signatures of governmental and non-governmental institutions. • 14 existing policies, procedures, programs were monitored and concrete improvements were proposed. • Trainings were provided to 65 NGOs and governmental institutions on corruption and its adverse effects, and advocacy. • Public awareness was raised through advocacy campaigns A media campaign targeted the broader public. Advocacy campaigns towards public institutions were organised (Parliament, Cantons, Municipalities). The most notable success was in the Ministry for Entrepreneurship, Crafts and Development of Tuzla Canton, which changed the procedures of work in accordance with the recommendations suggested. Finally, roundtables were held with citizens and local associations on the topic “Less corruption more jobs: the importance of civic activism”.
