The objective of the project is to build capacities of the civil organizations for exercising the citizens’ rights for local level referendums in the Skopje plan region. The project will examine citizens’ perceptions regarding the possibilities of the referendums as a direct tool for participative democracy and therefore strengthen the capacities of the local civil society organisations in order to improve participation of citizens in the process of local policy making and better public information. Thus, there will be an improvement of the cooperation between the municipalities and local civil society organisations, non-formal and informal activist groups and individuals in the field of local issues.
