Serbia Separation of Powers Program

2008-2014

EWMI is implementing a five-year USAID-funded Separation of Powers Program (SPP) in Serbia. SPP’s overall goal is to help Serbia move closer to EU accession by strengthening the division of power and authority more equably among Serbia’s three branches of government, helping the judiciary strengthen its defenses against executive and political influence and control, and helping the National Assembly build its capacity to respond to the needs of Serbia’s citizens and conduct oversight of government operations.
