ALDA launches the project "Break down or break out!"

On 4-5 December, the University of Chester in cooperation with ALDA launched the kick-off event of the project “Break Down or Break out!” (BDBO), funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus + programme. The project aims to provide simple and practice based guidance for long-term unemployed people over 40, still coping with the consequences of the economic pressures, and empower them to take action.

The event took place in Manchester (UK) and gathered partners from United Kingdom, France, Romania, Italy, Finland, Spain and Israel in order to discuss measures, methodologies and actions to be adopted throughout the project cycle. ALDA contributed to the activity by bringing in its expertise in managing deep-linked issues such as unemployment, social inclusion and active citizenship.

The general objective of the project is to generate a spiral of increasing capacity to act and react to passiveness deriving from unemployment. Although the project’s timespan is two years, the general expectation is to bring the project beyond its natural end by activating a multipliers process able to replicate the strategy on further groups of long-term unemployed. Indeed, during the second year a number of adult mentors from the first year will be involved in order to mentor, support and guide the second year group.

Public Administration Reform and Local Governance at the centre of the EaP strategies

ALDA – the European Association for Local Democracy and the Subgroup on Local Government and Public Administration Reform organised the side event on the Reform of Public Administration and the legislation and codes for the public servants, within the Civil Society Forum for Eastern Partnership, in Batumi, Georgia, last Friday.

Thanks to our very interesting and competent speakers, the participants had the possibility to know more about the practical and legislative challenges of this important topic.

“These exchanges of views are essential for us since that gives us elements and arguments for negotiation in our difficult context” said one participant from Belarus. The experience of Ukraine was presented by Volodymyr Kuprii, from CCC, Creative Centre from Kiev. The reform of public servants and administration is at stake in a country which heavily suffered – and still is – from a chronic corruption.

As from Georgia, Levan Alapishvili, from the Center for Strategic Research and Development of Georgia and coordinator of the self government Development programme, presented a real positive experience and what is still challenging in a dynamic context. From Moldova, the experience from Transparency International Moldova, introduced by Lilia Carasiuc gave an overview of the ethic problems as well and conflict of interest existing and how to act to prevent corruption.

For all the participants, the conclusions were that the topic is crucial for the development of policies of good governance in EaP countries, both at the national and local level. It is indeed, placed in the 2015 strategies for the Subgroup LGPAR of the Civil Society Forum for EaP that ALDA is leading.
