The Congress of the Council of Europe examines the situation in city of Mostar

At its 33rd Session in Strasbourg, France, the Chamber of Local Authorities of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe organised a roundtable on the situation in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

***
As a reminder, the City of Mostar and its citizens are in an extremely difficult position since the city council doesn’t exist since 2012 and no local elections have been held since 2008.

Stewart Dickson
, the Congress rapporteur at the last local elections in BiH in 2016, opened the roundtable presenting the reasons for the absence of the election process in Mostar, as well as the conclusions of the monitoring report. According to the report, the specific situation in Mostar should not be related to solving the national issue in Bosnia and Herzegovina or constitutional changes. He concluded that there’s no political will for solving the problems in Mostar on both national political parts. Dickson stressed that Congress once again supports the citizens of Mostar and will provide assistance in the realisation of their democratic rights, and will urge the Council of Europe to seriously consider what can be done to improve the situation.

Alex Jeffery
, visiting professor at Cambridge University, whose work focuses on the role of the non-governmental sector in creating democratic processes in post-conflict areas, also exhibited his vision of the role of the international community in the context of the situation in Mostar. Jeffery stated that one of the great successes in contemporary Mostar is the flourishing civil society initiatives that seek to challenge the stagnation and deadlock that has characterised the electoral process over the last nine years. He also emphasised that the consequence of continued political stagnation in Mostar is not simply a ‘muddling through’ with the status quo. The consequence is emigration.

On behalf of the Coalition ELECT Mostar, the situation in Mostar was presented by the director of the Local Democracy Agency Mostar (LDA Mostar), Dženana Dedić, et Vladimir Ćorić, Director of OKC Abrašević.

The Coalition ELECT Mostar, currently made up of three civil society organizations, the Local Democracy Agency Mostar, OKC Abrašević and the Youth Council of the City of Mostar, held an action in the Mostar on the day of last local elections in Bosnia and Herzegovina, on 2 October 2016. The citizens of Mostar had the opportunity to ‘vote’ in three city locations and by casting their ‘ballots’ with the answers to the questions by filling in questionnaires. Citizens responded to a number of issues, confirming their dissatisfaction with the existing situation. The action ELECT Mostar was well received by the citizens and broadcasted by regional and local media, and a great deal of attention has been devoted to it by an international community. The activity ELECT Mostar was organised at the time by a group of associations of citizens active in the Mostar city area and dealing with youth issues: Local Democracy Agency Mostar, Youth Council of the City of Mostar, OKC Abrašević, and the Association of Young Psychologists Sensus. Later on, two additional organisations took part in the action activities: Youth Power and The European Law Students’ Association ELSA Mostar.

The idea of activity ELECT Mostar was formed during the Local Youth Advisory Group meeting in 2016 as a part of the project activities of the Balkan regional platform for youth participation and dialogue, cofounded by EU.

Dedić presented the work of the Coalition and the action it carried out, and stressed the problem of mass abandonment of BiH, especially by young people, while Ćorić illustrated the political situation both at the state and at the local level, and appealed to the international community to provide solutions.

Finally, the situation in Mostar was presented by the project manager of the Nansen Dialogue Center in Mostar, Vernes Voloder, which faced Mostar’s problem with the sociological side, emphasizing that Mostar was not divided city when it comes to the citizens’ interpersonal relations, but division is created and present at the political level.

While aware of the complexity of the situation, the Congress urges authorities at all levels to work on a sustainable solution to restore local democracy in the City of Mostar, by amending the legislation, especially the Law on elections and the Statute of the City.

The Congress will continue to closely monitor the situation, in close cooperation with the Committee of the Regions of the European Union, and is committed to keeping the issue of local democracy in the City of Mostar on its political agenda until a suitable solution is found.

Le Congrès du Conseil de l’Europe examine la situation dans la ville de Mostar

Lors de sa 33e session à Strasbourg (France), la Chambre des pouvoirs locaux du Congrès des Autorités Locales et Régionales du Conseil de l’Europe a organisé une table ronde sur la situation à Mostar (Bosnie-Herzégovine).

***
La ville de Mostar et ses citoyens vivent une situation extrêmement difficile depuis 2012, année à partir de laquelle le conseil municipal n’existe plus, et qu’aucune élection locale n’a eu lieu depuis 2008.
Stewart Dickson, rapporteur du Congrès lors des dernières élections locales en Bosnie Herzégovine en 2016, a ouvert la table ronde en présentant les raisons de l’absence du processus électoral à Mostar, ainsi que les conclusions du rapport de suivi. Il a déclaré qu’aucun parti politique ne manifestait sa volonté de résoudre les problèmes de Mostar. Monsieur Dickson a souligné que le Congrès renouvelle son soutien aux citoyens de Mostar et apportera son aide à la réalisation de leurs droits démocratiques, et qu’il invitera le Conseil de l’Europe à réfléchir sérieusement à ce qui peut être fait pour améliorer la situation.

Alex Jeffery, professeur invité à l’Université de Cambridge, a souligné le fait que l’un des grands succès de la ville de Mostar d’aujourd’hui est l’éclosion d’initiatives de la société civile qui cherchent à contester la stagnation et l’impasse qui a caractérisé le processus électoral au cours des neuf dernières années, soulignant que l’une des conséquences de la stagnation politique persistante à Mostar est l’émigration.
Au nom de la Coalition ELECT Mostar, la situation à Mostar a été présentée par le directeur de l’Agence de Démocratie Locale de Mostar (LDA Mostar),  Dženana Dedić, et Vladimir Ćorić, directeur d’OKC Abrašević.

La Coalition ELECT Mostar, actuellement composée de trois organisations de la société civile – l’Agence de Démocratie Locale de Mostar, OKC Abrašević et le Conseil des jeunes de la ville de Mostar – a organisé une action à Mostar le jour des dernières élections locales en Bosnie-Herzégovine, le 2 octobre 2016. Les citoyens de Mostar ont eu l’occasion de “voter”, à trois endroits de la ville, en déposant leur “bulletin de vote” avec les réponses aux questions posées. Les citoyens ont répondu à un certain nombre de questions, confirmant leur mécontentement face à la situation actuelle. L’action ELECT Mostar a été bien accueillie par les citoyens et diffusée par les médias régionaux et locaux, et a reçu une large attention de la part de la communauté internationale. L’ELECT Mostar a été organisée par un groupe d’associations de citoyens actifs dans la zone urbaine de Mostar et qui s’occupe des questions de jeunesse : l’Agence de Démocratie Locale de Mostar, le Conseil des jeunes de la ville de Mostar, OKC Abrašević et l’Association des jeunes psychologues Sensus. Plus tard, deux autres organisations ont pris part aux activités d’action: Youth Power et l’association européenne des étudiants en droit, ELSA Mostar.

L’idée de l’activité ELECT Mostar a vu le jour lors de la réunion du Groupe des Jeunes Conseillers Locaux en 2016, dans le cadre des activités du projet de la plate-forme régionale des Balkans pour la participation des jeunes et le dialogue, cofondée par l’Union européenne.
Dedić a présenté le travail de la Coalition et l’action qu’elle a menée, et a souligné le problème de l’abandon massif de la Bosnie-Herzégovine, en particulier par les jeunes, tandis que Ćorić a illustré la situation politique tant au niveau de l’Etat qu’au niveau local, et a lancé un appel à la communauté internationale pour qu’elle apporte des solutions.

Enfin, la situation à Mostar a été présentée par le chef de projet du Centre de Dialogue Nansen de Mostar, Vernes Voloder, qui a fait face aux problèmes de Mostar avec une approche sociologique, soulignant que Mostar n’était pas une ville divisée en ce qui concerne les relations interpersonnelles des citoyens, mais que la division est créée et présente au niveau politique.
Tout en étant conscient de la complexité de la situation, le Congrès exhorte les autorités, à tous les niveaux, à œuvrer en faveur d’une solution durable pour rétablir la démocratie locale dans la ville de Mostar, en modifiant la législation, en particulier la loi sur les élections et le statut de la ville.

Le Congrès continuera à suivre la situation de près, en étroite coopération avec le Comité des Régions de l’Union européenne, et s’engage à maintenir la question de la démocratie locale dans la ville de Mostar à son ordre du jour politique, jusqu’à ce qu’une solution appropriée soit trouvée.

Il Congresso del Consiglio d’Europa esamina la situazione della città di Mostar

Durante la sua 33esima sessione a Strasburgo, Francia, la Camera dei Poteri Locali del Congresso dei Poteri Locali e Regionali del Consiglio d’Europa ha organizzato una tavola rotonda sulla situazione di Mostar, in Bosnia ed Erzegovina.

***
La città di Mostar e i suoi cittadini vivono una situazione estremamente difficile da quando il Consiglio Comunale non esiste più (dal 2012), e l’organizzazione delle ultime elezioni locali nel 2008.
Stewart Dickson, referente del Congresso durante le ultime elezioni locali in Bosnia ed Erzegovina nel 2016, ha aperto la tavola rotonda presentando le ragioni dell’assenza del processo elettorale a Mostar, così come le conclusioni del processo di monitoraggio. Egli ha riportato che nessun partito politico ha dimostrato la sua volontà di voler risolvere i problemi di Mostar. Dickson ha enfatizzato al Congresso la necessità di sostenere i cittadini di Mostar e di provvedere all’assistenza nella completa realizzazione dei loro diritti democratici, e che solleciterà il Consiglio d’Europa a discutere cosa può essere fatto per migliorare la situazione.

Alex Jeffery, professore all’Università di Cambridge, ha sottolineato il fatto che uno dei grandi successi nella Mostar contemporanea sia il fiorire d’iniziative della società civile che cercano di affrontare la stasi che ha caratterizzato il processo elettorale negli ultimi nove anni, enfatizzando che una delle conseguenze della continua stagnazione politica in Mostar sia l’emigrazione.

In rappresentanza della Coalizione ELECT di Mostar, la situazione a Mostar è stata presentata dalla Direttrice della Agenzia della Democrazia Locale di Mostar (ADL Mostar), Dženana Dedić, e da Vladimir Ćorić, Direttore dell’OKC Abrašević.

La Coalizione ELECT Mostar, al momento composta da tre organizzazioni della società civile, – l’Agenzia della Democrazia Locale di Mostar, OKC Abrašević e il Consiglio dei Giovani della Città di Mostar – ha condotto un’azione innovativa a Mostar nel giorno delle ultime elezioni locali in Bosnia ed Erzegovina, il 2 ottobre 2016. I cittadini di Mostar hanno avuto l’opportunità di “votare” in tre luoghi della città depositando i propri voti con le risposte alle domande proposte nel questionario. I cittadini hanno risposto evidenziando una serie di problemi, confermano la propria insoddisfazione per la situazione in corso. L’azione di ELECT Mostar è stata ben accolta dai cittadini e riportata dai media regionali e locali, e ha ricevuto un’ampia attenzione dalla comunità internazionale. ELECT Mostar è stata fondata da un gruppo di associazioni di cittadini attivi nell’area di Mostar che si occupano degli argomenti relativi ai giovani: l’Agenzia della Democrazia Locale di Mostar, il Consiglio dei Giovani della Città di Mostar, OKC Abrašević e l’Associazione dei Giovani Psicologi Sensus. Due ulteriori organizzazioni hanno aderito a ELECT Mostar a seguito dell’iniziativa: Youth Power e l’Associazione degli Studenti di Legge Europea ELSA Mostar.

L’idea dell’attività di ELECT Mostar ha preso forma durante l’incontro del Gruppo Consiliare dei Giovani Locali nel 2016 quale parte delle attività del progetto della piattaforma regionale dei Balcani per la partecipazione giovanile e il dialogo, cofinanziata dall’UE.
Dedić ha presentato il lavoro della Coalizione e le azioni che essa ha condotto, mettendo l’accento sul problema dell’abbandono di massa della Bosnia ed Erzegovina, specialmente da parte dei giovani, mentre Ćorić ha illustrato la situazione politica sia al livello statale che a quello locale, rivolgendosi alla comunità internazionale affinché trovino delle soluzioni.

Infine la situazione di Mostar è stata discussa dal project manager del Nansen Dialogue Center di Mostar, Vernes Voloder, che ha affrontato il problema da un profilo sociologico, enfatizzando il fatto che Mostar non è una città divisa per quanto riguarda le relazioni tra i cittadini, ma che la divisione venga creata dalla politica.

Consapevole della complessità della situazione, il Congresso tutti gli attori implicati a lavorare per il raggiungimento di una soluzione sostenibile per riportare la democrazia locale nella Città di Mostar, attraverso modifiche legislative, specialmente alla legge elettorale e allo Statuto della Città.

Il Congresso continuerà a monitorare da vicino la situazione, in stretta cooperazione con il Comitato delle Regioni dell’Unione Europea, e si impegna a mantenere il tema della democrazia locale nella Città di Mostar sulla sua agenda politica finché non si troverà una soluzione condivisa.

Конгресс Совета Европы рассматривает ситуацию в городе Мостар

На своей 33-й сессии в Страсбурге, Франция, Палата местных органов власти Конгресса местных и региональных властей Совета Европы организовала «круглый стол» по ситуации в Мостаре, Босния и Герцеговина.

***
Город Мостар и его граждане живут крайне сложно, поскольку городской совет не существует с 2012 года, и с 2008 года не проводятся местные выборы.
Стюарт Диксон, докладчик Конгресса на последних местных выборах в БиГ в 2016 году, открыл круглый стол, в котором излагаются причины отсутствия избирательного процесса в Мостаре, а также выводы отчета о мониторинге. Он заявил, что политическая сторона не видит их желания решить проблемы в Мостаре. Диксон подчеркнул, что Конгресс в очередной раз поддерживает граждан Мостара и будет оказывать помощь в реализации их демократических прав и настоятельно призывает Совет Европы серьезно подумать о том, что можно сделать для улучшения ситуации.

Алекс Джеффри, приглашенный профессор Кембриджского университета, подчеркнул, что одним из больших успехов в современном Мостаре является процветание инициатив гражданского общества, которые стремятся оспаривать застой и тупик, характеризовавший избирательный процесс за последние девять лет, подчеркнув, и что является одним из последствий продолжающейся политической стагнации в Мостаре – эмиграция.

От имени Коалиции ЭЛЕКТ МОСТАР ситуация в Мостаре была представлена директором Агентства местной демократии Мостар (LDA Мостар), Дженаной Дедич и Владимиром Лоричем, директором ОКК Абрашевич.
Коалиция ЭЛЕКТ МОСТАР, в настоящее время состоящая из трех организаций гражданского общества – Агентства местной демократии Мостар, OKК Абрашевич и Молодежного совета города Мостар, провела акцию в Мостаре в день последних местных выборов в Боснии и Герцеговине, 2 октября 2016 года. Граждане Мостара имели возможность «проголосовать» в трех городах, отправив свои бюллетени с ответами на заданные вопросы. Граждане ответили на ряд вопросов, подтвердив их неудовлетворенность существующей ситуацией. Акция ЭЛЕКТ МОСТАР была хорошо воспринята гражданами и транслировалась региональными и местными средствами массовой информации и получила широкое внимание со стороны международного сообщества. ЭЛЕКТ МОСТАР была организована группой ассоциаций граждан, действующих в районе города Мостар, и занимающихся проблемами молодежи: Агентством местной демократии Мостар, Молодежным советом города Мостар, OKК Абрашевич и Ассоциацией молодых психологов Sensus. Позже в мероприятиях приняли участие две дополнительные организации: Молодежная держава и ассоциация студентов Европейского права ELSA Мостар.

Идея деятельности ЭЛЕКТ МОСТАР была сформирована на заседании Местной молодежной консультативной группы в 2016 году в рамках проектной деятельности Балканской региональной платформы для участия и диалога молодежи, которая была объединена ЕС.
Дедич представила работу Коалиции и ее действия и подчеркнула проблему массового отказа БиГ, особенно молодежи, а Йорич проиллюстрировал политическую ситуацию как на уровне стран, так и на местном уровне и обратился к международному сообщества для предоставления решений.

Наконец, ситуация в Мостаре была представлена руководителем проекта Центра диалогов Нансена в Мостаре Вернесом Володером, который столкнулся с проблемой Мостара с социологической стороны, подчеркнув, что Мостар не был разделен городом, когда речь идет о межличностных отношениях граждан, но разделение создается и присутствует на политическом уровне.

Осознавая сложность ситуации, Конгресс настоятельно призывает власти всех уровней работать над устойчивым решением для восстановления местной демократии в городе Мостар путем внесения поправок в законодательство, в частности Закона о выборах и Статута города.

Конгресс продолжит внимательно следить за ситуацией в тесном сотрудничестве с Комитетом регионов Европейского союза и намерен сохранить вопрос о местной демократии в городе Мостар в своей политической повестке дня до тех пор, пока не будет найдено подходящее решение.

Kongres Saveta Evrope ispituje situaciju u gradu Mostaru

Na 33. sednici u Strazburu, veće lokalnih vlasti, kongresa lokalnih i regionalnih vlasti Saveta Evrope, organizovalo je okrugli sto o situaciji u Mostaru.

***
Grad Mostar i njegovi građani žive u izuzetno teškoj poziciji, obzirom da gradsko veće ne funkcioniše od 2012. godine, a lokalni izbori nisu održani od 2008.
Sjuart Dikson, izvestilac kongresa na poslednjim lokalnim izborima u BiH 2016. godine, otvorio je okrugli sto predstavljajući situaciju i odsustvo izbornog procesa u Mostaru, kao i zaključke izveštaja o nadzoru. On je naveo da nijedna politička stranka ne pokazuje volju da reši probleme u Mostaru. Dikson je naglasio da kongres podržava građane Mostara i da će pružiti pomoć u ostvarivanju njihovih demokratskih prava i zatražiti od Saveta Evrope da ozbiljno razmotri šta se može učiniti kako bi se situacija poboljšala.

Aleks Džefri, gostujući profesor na Cambridge Univerzitetu, istakao je da je jedan od velikih uspeha u savremenom Mostaru cvetanje inicijativa organizacija civilnog društva koje nastoje da prekinu stagnaciju koja karakteriše izborni proces tokom proteklih devet godina, ističući da je emigracija jedna od posledica kontinuirane političke stagnacije u Mostaru.

U ime koalicije ELECT Mostar, situaciju u mostaru predstavili su direktorica Agencije Lokalne Demokratije (LDA Mostar), Dženana Dedić i Vladimir Ćorić, direktor OKC Abrašević.
Koalicija ELECT Mostar, koju trenutno sačinjavaju tri organizacije civilnog društva – Agencija Lokalne Demokratije Mostar, OKC Abrašević i Omladinski savet grada Mostara – održali su akciju u Mostaru na dan poslednjih lokalnih izbora u Bosni i Hercegovini, 2. oktobra 2016. godine. Građani Mostara imali su priliku da “glasaju” na tri gradske lokacije stavljajući svoje “glasačke listiće” sa odgovorima na postavljena pitanja. Građani su odgovorili na brojna pitanja, potvrđujući njihovo nezadovoljstvo postojećom situacijom. Akcija ELECT Mostar dobro je prihvaćena od strane građana, a ceo događaj je ispraćen i emitovan od strane lokalnih i regionalnih medija, kao i međunarodne zajednice. ELECT Mostar je realizovala grupa građanskih organizacija koje su aktivne na području grada Mostara i bave se pitanjima omladine: Agencija Lokalne Demokratije Mostar, Omladinski savet grada Mostara, OKC Abrašević i Asocijacija mladih psihologa Sensus. Naknadno su se pridružile još dve organizacije: Snaga Mladih i Udruženje ELSA (The European Law Students’ Association Mostar)
Ideja o aktivnosti ELECT Mostar nastala je na sastanku Lokalne omladinske savetodavne grupe 2016. godine, u okviru projektnih aktivnosti Regionalne platforme za učešće i dijalog mladih Balkana, sufinansiranog od strane EU.

Gospođa Dedić predstavila je rad Koalicija i aktivnosti koje su sprovedene i naglasila da je jedan od najvećih problema masovno napuštanje BiH, posebno mladih ljudi, dok je Ćorić opisao političku situaciju kako na državnom, tako i na lokalnom nivou i apelovao na međunarodnu zajednicu za pružanje rešenja.

Konačno, situaciju u Mostaru predstavio je projektni menadžer Centra za Dijalog Nansen, Vernes Voloder, koji je pristupio mostarskom problemu sa sociološkog aspekta, naglašavajući da Mostar nije podeljen grad kada su u pitanju međuljudski odnosi građana, već je podela stvorena i prisutna na političkom nivou.

Uprkos složenosti situacije, kongres poziva vlasti na svim nivoima da rade na održivom rešenju za obnovu lokalne demokratije u Mostaru, izmenom zakonodavstva, posebno zakona o izborima i statuta grada Mostara.
Kongres će nastaviti da pažljivo prati situaciju u bliskoj saradnji sa Komitetom regiona Evropske unije, uz posvećenost održavanja pitanja lokalne demokratije i političke agende u Mostaru sve dok se ne pronađe odgovarajuće rešenje.

مؤتمر مجلس أوروبا يدرس الوضع السائد في مدينة موستار

بمناسبة انعقاد دورتها 33, بمدينة ستراسبورغ, في فرنسا, نظمت غرفة السلطات المحلية, التابعة للمؤتمر المحلي والسلطات المحلية, لمجلس أوروبا, طاولة مستديرة حول الوضع السائد في مدينة موستار, بالبوسنة والهرسك

***

تمر مدينة موستار ومواطنوها بظروف صعبة جدا بسبب تغيب مجلس بلدية المدينة, منذ 2012, وعدم تنظيم أي انتخابات محلية منذ 2008.

خلال آخر انتخابات محلية نظمت بالبوسنة والهرسك سنة 2016, افتتح ستيوارت ديكسون, مقرر المؤتمر, أشغال الطاولة المستديرة بتقديم أسباب احتجاب المسار الانتخابي بمدينة موستار ثم تلا الملخص الوارد في تقرير المراقبين. في ذات السياق, أشار ديكسون إلى عدم وجود أي حزب سياسي يرغب في حل المشاكل القائمة بمدينة موستار. في ذات السياق, أكد ديكسون أن المؤتمر ما انفك يدعم المواطنين في موستار ويصر على تقديم المساعدة لهم وحثهم على اكتساب حقوقهم الديمقراطية, إضافة إلى  دعوة مجلس أوروبا إلى أخذ على محمل الجد كل ما شأنه أن يساعد على تحسين الوضع.

ألكس جافري, أكد هذا الأستاذ الزائر, من جامعة كامبريدج, أن أحد أهم النجاحات المسجلة في مدينة موستار الحديثة, تكمن في تقديم المبادرات الصادرة عن المجتمع المدني والساعية إلى رفع التحدي المتمثل في الركود والانغلاق الذي ما انفك يتهدد المسار الانتخابي خلال التسع سنوات الماضية, مع التركيز على أحدى تبعات الركود السياسي المتواصل بمدينة موستار, ألا وهي معضلة الهجرة.

باسم ائتلاف ألكت ( ELECT  )موستار, تم تقديم عرض حول الوضع السائد بمدينة موستار, من قبل مدير وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بموستار,دجينانا ديدتش, وفلاديمير كوريتش, مدير OKC أبرازافيتش.

نظم إئتلاف ألكت (ELECT) بموستار الذي يشمل ثلاثة منظمات غير حكومية الآن – وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بموستار,  OKC أبرازافيتش ومجلس الشباب لمدينة موستار – تظاهرة بمدينة موستار حول اليوم الذي شهد تنظيم آخر انتخابات بالبوسنة والهرسك, بتاريخ 2 أكتوبر (جمادى الاول) 2016. مثلت هذه التظاهرة فرصة سانحة لسكان مدينة موستار للإدلاء بأصواتهم في ثلاثة مكاتب انتخاب بالمدينة, حيث مكنتهم من القيام بعملية الاقتراع والإدلاء “بأصواتهم” وتقديم الأجوبة حول الأسئلة المطروحة. تولى المتساكنون الرد على عدد من المسائل للإعراب عن عدم رضاهم بالوضع الراهن. حضيت تظاهرة ألكت موستار بقبول جيد من قبل المتساكنين وتم الترويج لها من قبل وسائل الإعلام المحلية والإقليمية, إضافة إلى الاهتمام الواسع الذي لاقته من قبل المجموعة الدولية. نظمت تظاهرة ألكت موستار من قبل مجموعة من جمعيات المواطنين النشطاء بمنطقة موستار والذين يركزوا اهتمامهم على قضايا الشباب: وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بموستار ومجلس الشباب لمدينة موستار- و OKC أبرازافيتش وجمعية سنسيس (Sensus)لعلماء النفس الشباب. ثم انمضت لهذه التظاهرة, لاحقا, منظمتان إضافيتان للمشاركة في الأنشطة: يوث باور (Youth Power) والجمعية الأوروبية لطلبة القانون ألسا (ELSA) موستار.

نشأت فكرة تنظيم نشاط ألكت موستار أثناء اللقاء الذي نظمته المجموعة الاستشارية المحلية للشباب سنة 2016, كجزء من الأنشطة المضمنة في المشروع للمنصة الإقليمية لمنطقة البلقان لمشاركة الشباب والحوار, وذلك بمبادرة مشتركة مع الاتحاد الأوروبي.

كما تناول الكلمة ديدتش لتقديم عمل الائتلاف وعرض الأنشطة التي تم إنجازها, إضافة إلى التأكيد على المشاكل الناجمة عن التجاهل الجماعي والمنتشرة بشكل واسع في البوسنة والهرسك, وخاصة منها التي تستهدف الشباب. وبدوره تناول كوريتش الكلمة لمسليط الضوء على الوضع السياسي, على المستويين الوطني والمحلي, مستغلا هذه الفرصة لدعوة المجتمع الدولي إلى التدخل واقتراح الحلول الناجعة في هذا الإطار.

وفي الختام, استمع الحضور إلى عرض حول الوضع السائد في موستار, قدمه فارناس فولودر, مدير المشروع بمركز نانسن للحوار, والذي تناول بالبحث فيه المشكل من الجانب السوسيولوجي, مع التأكيد على أن موستار لا تعتبر مدينة منقسمة كلما ارتبط الأمر بعلاقات التواصل الشخصية بين المواطنين, بالرغم من الإقرار بوجود هذه الانقسامات على المستوى السياسي.

مع وعيه بتشعب الوضع, ما انفك المؤتمر يحث السلطات على بذل الجهود, على مختلف المستويات, لتوفير حلول مستدامة وإعادة الديمقراطية المحلية إلى مدينة موستار, وذلك بتنقيح القوانين والتشريعات المعتمدة, وخاصة قانون الانتخابات والنظام الأساسي للمدينة.

المسؤولون عن المؤتمر عاقدون العزم على مواصلة مراقبة الوضع عن كثب ومواصلة التعاون الوثيق مع مجموعة المناطق الأوروبية, إضافة إلى التزامهم بتدوين كافة المسائل المتعلقة بالديمقراطية المحلية في مدينة موستار على جدول أعماله وذلك إلى غاية التوصل إلى إيجاد حل ملائم لفائدة الجميع.

At its 33rd Session in Strasbourg, France, the Chamber of Local Authorities of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe organised a roundtable on the situation in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

***
As a reminder, the City of Mostar and its citizens are in an extremely difficult position since the city council doesn’t exist since 2012 and no local elections have been held since 2008.

Stewart Dickson
, the Congress rapporteur at the last local elections in BiH in 2016, opened the roundtable presenting the reasons for the absence of the election process in Mostar, as well as the conclusions of the monitoring report. According to the report, the specific situation in Mostar should not be related to solving the national issue in Bosnia and Herzegovina or constitutional changes. He concluded that there’s no political will for solving the problems in Mostar on both national political parts. Dickson stressed that Congress once again supports the citizens of Mostar and will provide assistance in the realisation of their democratic rights, and will urge the Council of Europe to seriously consider what can be done to improve the situation.

Alex Jeffery
, visiting professor at Cambridge University, whose work focuses on the role of the non-governmental sector in creating democratic processes in post-conflict areas, also exhibited his vision of the role of the international community in the context of the situation in Mostar. Jeffery stated that one of the great successes in contemporary Mostar is the flourishing civil society initiatives that seek to challenge the stagnation and deadlock that has characterised the electoral process over the last nine years. He also emphasised that the consequence of continued political stagnation in Mostar is not simply a ‘muddling through’ with the status quo. The consequence is emigration.

On behalf of the Coalition ELECT Mostar, the situation in Mostar was presented by the director of the Local Democracy Agency Mostar (LDA Mostar), Dženana Dedić, et Vladimir Ćorić, Director of OKC Abrašević.

The Coalition ELECT Mostar, currently made up of three civil society organizations, the Local Democracy Agency Mostar, OKC Abrašević and the Youth Council of the City of Mostar, held an action in the Mostar on the day of last local elections in Bosnia and Herzegovina, on 2 October 2016. The citizens of Mostar had the opportunity to ‘vote’ in three city locations and by casting their ‘ballots’ with the answers to the questions by filling in questionnaires. Citizens responded to a number of issues, confirming their dissatisfaction with the existing situation. The action ELECT Mostar was well received by the citizens and broadcasted by regional and local media, and a great deal of attention has been devoted to it by an international community. The activity ELECT Mostar was organised at the time by a group of associations of citizens active in the Mostar city area and dealing with youth issues: Local Democracy Agency Mostar, Youth Council of the City of Mostar, OKC Abrašević, and the Association of Young Psychologists Sensus. Later on, two additional organisations took part in the action activities: Youth Power and The European Law Students’ Association ELSA Mostar.

The idea of activity ELECT Mostar was formed during the Local Youth Advisory Group meeting in 2016 as a part of the project activities of the Balkan regional platform for youth participation and dialogue, cofounded by EU.

Dedić presented the work of the Coalition and the action it carried out, and stressed the problem of mass abandonment of BiH, especially by young people, while Ćorić illustrated the political situation both at the state and at the local level, and appealed to the international community to provide solutions.

Finally, the situation in Mostar was presented by the project manager of the Nansen Dialogue Center in Mostar, Vernes Voloder, which faced Mostar’s problem with the sociological side, emphasizing that Mostar was not divided city when it comes to the citizens’ interpersonal relations, but division is created and present at the political level.

While aware of the complexity of the situation, the Congress urges authorities at all levels to work on a sustainable solution to restore local democracy in the City of Mostar, by amending the legislation, especially the Law on elections and the Statute of the City.

The Congress will continue to closely monitor the situation, in close cooperation with the Committee of the Regions of the European Union, and is committed to keeping the issue of local democracy in the City of Mostar on its political agenda until a suitable solution is found.

Le Congrès du Conseil de l’Europe examine la situation dans la ville de Mostar

Lors de sa 33e session à Strasbourg (France), la Chambre des pouvoirs locaux du Congrès des Autorités Locales et Régionales du Conseil de l’Europe a organisé une table ronde sur la situation à Mostar (Bosnie-Herzégovine).

***
La ville de Mostar et ses citoyens vivent une situation extrêmement difficile depuis 2012, année à partir de laquelle le conseil municipal n’existe plus, et qu’aucune élection locale n’a eu lieu depuis 2008.
Stewart Dickson, rapporteur du Congrès lors des dernières élections locales en Bosnie Herzégovine en 2016, a ouvert la table ronde en présentant les raisons de l’absence du processus électoral à Mostar, ainsi que les conclusions du rapport de suivi. Il a déclaré qu’aucun parti politique ne manifestait sa volonté de résoudre les problèmes de Mostar. Monsieur Dickson a souligné que le Congrès renouvelle son soutien aux citoyens de Mostar et apportera son aide à la réalisation de leurs droits démocratiques, et qu’il invitera le Conseil de l’Europe à réfléchir sérieusement à ce qui peut être fait pour améliorer la situation.

Alex Jeffery, professeur invité à l’Université de Cambridge, a souligné le fait que l’un des grands succès de la ville de Mostar d’aujourd’hui est l’éclosion d’initiatives de la société civile qui cherchent à contester la stagnation et l’impasse qui a caractérisé le processus électoral au cours des neuf dernières années, soulignant que l’une des conséquences de la stagnation politique persistante à Mostar est l’émigration.
Au nom de la Coalition ELECT Mostar, la situation à Mostar a été présentée par le directeur de l’Agence de Démocratie Locale de Mostar (LDA Mostar),  Dženana Dedić, et Vladimir Ćorić, directeur d’OKC Abrašević.

La Coalition ELECT Mostar, actuellement composée de trois organisations de la société civile – l’Agence de Démocratie Locale de Mostar, OKC Abrašević et le Conseil des jeunes de la ville de Mostar – a organisé une action à Mostar le jour des dernières élections locales en Bosnie-Herzégovine, le 2 octobre 2016. Les citoyens de Mostar ont eu l’occasion de “voter”, à trois endroits de la ville, en déposant leur “bulletin de vote” avec les réponses aux questions posées. Les citoyens ont répondu à un certain nombre de questions, confirmant leur mécontentement face à la situation actuelle. L’action ELECT Mostar a été bien accueillie par les citoyens et diffusée par les médias régionaux et locaux, et a reçu une large attention de la part de la communauté internationale. L’ELECT Mostar a été organisée par un groupe d’associations de citoyens actifs dans la zone urbaine de Mostar et qui s’occupe des questions de jeunesse : l’Agence de Démocratie Locale de Mostar, le Conseil des jeunes de la ville de Mostar, OKC Abrašević et l’Association des jeunes psychologues Sensus. Plus tard, deux autres organisations ont pris part aux activités d’action: Youth Power et l’association européenne des étudiants en droit, ELSA Mostar.

L’idée de l’activité ELECT Mostar a vu le jour lors de la réunion du Groupe des Jeunes Conseillers Locaux en 2016, dans le cadre des activités du projet de la plate-forme régionale des Balkans pour la participation des jeunes et le dialogue, cofondée par l’Union européenne.
Dedić a présenté le travail de la Coalition et l’action qu’elle a menée, et a souligné le problème de l’abandon massif de la Bosnie-Herzégovine, en particulier par les jeunes, tandis que Ćorić a illustré la situation politique tant au niveau de l’Etat qu’au niveau local, et a lancé un appel à la communauté internationale pour qu’elle apporte des solutions.

Enfin, la situation à Mostar a été présentée par le chef de projet du Centre de Dialogue Nansen de Mostar, Vernes Voloder, qui a fait face aux problèmes de Mostar avec une approche sociologique, soulignant que Mostar n’était pas une ville divisée en ce qui concerne les relations interpersonnelles des citoyens, mais que la division est créée et présente au niveau politique.
Tout en étant conscient de la complexité de la situation, le Congrès exhorte les autorités, à tous les niveaux, à œuvrer en faveur d’une solution durable pour rétablir la démocratie locale dans la ville de Mostar, en modifiant la législation, en particulier la loi sur les élections et le statut de la ville.

Le Congrès continuera à suivre la situation de près, en étroite coopération avec le Comité des Régions de l’Union européenne, et s’engage à maintenir la question de la démocratie locale dans la ville de Mostar à son ordre du jour politique, jusqu’à ce qu’une solution appropriée soit trouvée.

Il Congresso del Consiglio d’Europa esamina la situazione della città di Mostar

Durante la sua 33esima sessione a Strasburgo, Francia, la Camera dei Poteri Locali del Congresso dei Poteri Locali e Regionali del Consiglio d’Europa ha organizzato una tavola rotonda sulla situazione di Mostar, in Bosnia ed Erzegovina.

***
La città di Mostar e i suoi cittadini vivono una situazione estremamente difficile da quando il Consiglio Comunale non esiste più (dal 2012), e l’organizzazione delle ultime elezioni locali nel 2008.
Stewart Dickson, referente del Congresso durante le ultime elezioni locali in Bosnia ed Erzegovina nel 2016, ha aperto la tavola rotonda presentando le ragioni dell’assenza del processo elettorale a Mostar, così come le conclusioni del processo di monitoraggio. Egli ha riportato che nessun partito politico ha dimostrato la sua volontà di voler risolvere i problemi di Mostar. Dickson ha enfatizzato al Congresso la necessità di sostenere i cittadini di Mostar e di provvedere all’assistenza nella completa realizzazione dei loro diritti democratici, e che solleciterà il Consiglio d’Europa a discutere cosa può essere fatto per migliorare la situazione.

Alex Jeffery, professore all’Università di Cambridge, ha sottolineato il fatto che uno dei grandi successi nella Mostar contemporanea sia il fiorire d’iniziative della società civile che cercano di affrontare la stasi che ha caratterizzato il processo elettorale negli ultimi nove anni, enfatizzando che una delle conseguenze della continua stagnazione politica in Mostar sia l’emigrazione.

In rappresentanza della Coalizione ELECT di Mostar, la situazione a Mostar è stata presentata dalla Direttrice della Agenzia della Democrazia Locale di Mostar (ADL Mostar), Dženana Dedić, e da Vladimir Ćorić, Direttore dell’OKC Abrašević.

La Coalizione ELECT Mostar, al momento composta da tre organizzazioni della società civile, – l’Agenzia della Democrazia Locale di Mostar, OKC Abrašević e il Consiglio dei Giovani della Città di Mostar – ha condotto un’azione innovativa a Mostar nel giorno delle ultime elezioni locali in Bosnia ed Erzegovina, il 2 ottobre 2016. I cittadini di Mostar hanno avuto l’opportunità di “votare” in tre luoghi della città depositando i propri voti con le risposte alle domande proposte nel questionario. I cittadini hanno risposto evidenziando una serie di problemi, confermano la propria insoddisfazione per la situazione in corso. L’azione di ELECT Mostar è stata ben accolta dai cittadini e riportata dai media regionali e locali, e ha ricevuto un’ampia attenzione dalla comunità internazionale. ELECT Mostar è stata fondata da un gruppo di associazioni di cittadini attivi nell’area di Mostar che si occupano degli argomenti relativi ai giovani: l’Agenzia della Democrazia Locale di Mostar, il Consiglio dei Giovani della Città di Mostar, OKC Abrašević e l’Associazione dei Giovani Psicologi Sensus. Due ulteriori organizzazioni hanno aderito a ELECT Mostar a seguito dell’iniziativa: Youth Power e l’Associazione degli Studenti di Legge Europea ELSA Mostar.

L’idea dell’attività di ELECT Mostar ha preso forma durante l’incontro del Gruppo Consiliare dei Giovani Locali nel 2016 quale parte delle attività del progetto della piattaforma regionale dei Balcani per la partecipazione giovanile e il dialogo, cofinanziata dall’UE.
Dedić ha presentato il lavoro della Coalizione e le azioni che essa ha condotto, mettendo l’accento sul problema dell’abbandono di massa della Bosnia ed Erzegovina, specialmente da parte dei giovani, mentre Ćorić ha illustrato la situazione politica sia al livello statale che a quello locale, rivolgendosi alla comunità internazionale affinché trovino delle soluzioni.

Infine la situazione di Mostar è stata discussa dal project manager del Nansen Dialogue Center di Mostar, Vernes Voloder, che ha affrontato il problema da un profilo sociologico, enfatizzando il fatto che Mostar non è una città divisa per quanto riguarda le relazioni tra i cittadini, ma che la divisione venga creata dalla politica.

Consapevole della complessità della situazione, il Congresso tutti gli attori implicati a lavorare per il raggiungimento di una soluzione sostenibile per riportare la democrazia locale nella Città di Mostar, attraverso modifiche legislative, specialmente alla legge elettorale e allo Statuto della Città.

Il Congresso continuerà a monitorare da vicino la situazione, in stretta cooperazione con il Comitato delle Regioni dell’Unione Europea, e si impegna a mantenere il tema della democrazia locale nella Città di Mostar sulla sua agenda politica finché non si troverà una soluzione condivisa.

Конгресс Совета Европы рассматривает ситуацию в городе Мостар

На своей 33-й сессии в Страсбурге, Франция, Палата местных органов власти Конгресса местных и региональных властей Совета Европы организовала «круглый стол» по ситуации в Мостаре, Босния и Герцеговина.

***
Город Мостар и его граждане живут крайне сложно, поскольку городской совет не существует с 2012 года, и с 2008 года не проводятся местные выборы.
Стюарт Диксон, докладчик Конгресса на последних местных выборах в БиГ в 2016 году, открыл круглый стол, в котором излагаются причины отсутствия избирательного процесса в Мостаре, а также выводы отчета о мониторинге. Он заявил, что политическая сторона не видит их желания решить проблемы в Мостаре. Диксон подчеркнул, что Конгресс в очередной раз поддерживает граждан Мостара и будет оказывать помощь в реализации их демократических прав и настоятельно призывает Совет Европы серьезно подумать о том, что можно сделать для улучшения ситуации.

Алекс Джеффри, приглашенный профессор Кембриджского университета, подчеркнул, что одним из больших успехов в современном Мостаре является процветание инициатив гражданского общества, которые стремятся оспаривать застой и тупик, характеризовавший избирательный процесс за последние девять лет, подчеркнув, и что является одним из последствий продолжающейся политической стагнации в Мостаре – эмиграция.

От имени Коалиции ЭЛЕКТ МОСТАР ситуация в Мостаре была представлена директором Агентства местной демократии Мостар (LDA Мостар), Дженаной Дедич и Владимиром Лоричем, директором ОКК Абрашевич.
Коалиция ЭЛЕКТ МОСТАР, в настоящее время состоящая из трех организаций гражданского общества – Агентства местной демократии Мостар, OKК Абрашевич и Молодежного совета города Мостар, провела акцию в Мостаре в день последних местных выборов в Боснии и Герцеговине, 2 октября 2016 года. Граждане Мостара имели возможность «проголосовать» в трех городах, отправив свои бюллетени с ответами на заданные вопросы. Граждане ответили на ряд вопросов, подтвердив их неудовлетворенность существующей ситуацией. Акция ЭЛЕКТ МОСТАР была хорошо воспринята гражданами и транслировалась региональными и местными средствами массовой информации и получила широкое внимание со стороны международного сообщества. ЭЛЕКТ МОСТАР была организована группой ассоциаций граждан, действующих в районе города Мостар, и занимающихся проблемами молодежи: Агентством местной демократии Мостар, Молодежным советом города Мостар, OKК Абрашевич и Ассоциацией молодых психологов Sensus. Позже в мероприятиях приняли участие две дополнительные организации: Молодежная держава и ассоциация студентов Европейского права ELSA Мостар.

Идея деятельности ЭЛЕКТ МОСТАР была сформирована на заседании Местной молодежной консультативной группы в 2016 году в рамках проектной деятельности Балканской региональной платформы для участия и диалога молодежи, которая была объединена ЕС.
Дедич представила работу Коалиции и ее действия и подчеркнула проблему массового отказа БиГ, особенно молодежи, а Йорич проиллюстрировал политическую ситуацию как на уровне стран, так и на местном уровне и обратился к международному сообщества для предоставления решений.

Наконец, ситуация в Мостаре была представлена руководителем проекта Центра диалогов Нансена в Мостаре Вернесом Володером, который столкнулся с проблемой Мостара с социологической стороны, подчеркнув, что Мостар не был разделен городом, когда речь идет о межличностных отношениях граждан, но разделение создается и присутствует на политическом уровне.

Осознавая сложность ситуации, Конгресс настоятельно призывает власти всех уровней работать над устойчивым решением для восстановления местной демократии в городе Мостар путем внесения поправок в законодательство, в частности Закона о выборах и Статута города.

Конгресс продолжит внимательно следить за ситуацией в тесном сотрудничестве с Комитетом регионов Европейского союза и намерен сохранить вопрос о местной демократии в городе Мостар в своей политической повестке дня до тех пор, пока не будет найдено подходящее решение.

Kongres Saveta Evrope ispituje situaciju u gradu Mostaru

Na 33. sednici u Strazburu, veće lokalnih vlasti, kongresa lokalnih i regionalnih vlasti Saveta Evrope, organizovalo je okrugli sto o situaciji u Mostaru.

***
Grad Mostar i njegovi građani žive u izuzetno teškoj poziciji, obzirom da gradsko veće ne funkcioniše od 2012. godine, a lokalni izbori nisu održani od 2008.
Sjuart Dikson, izvestilac kongresa na poslednjim lokalnim izborima u BiH 2016. godine, otvorio je okrugli sto predstavljajući situaciju i odsustvo izbornog procesa u Mostaru, kao i zaključke izveštaja o nadzoru. On je naveo da nijedna politička stranka ne pokazuje volju da reši probleme u Mostaru. Dikson je naglasio da kongres podržava građane Mostara i da će pružiti pomoć u ostvarivanju njihovih demokratskih prava i zatražiti od Saveta Evrope da ozbiljno razmotri šta se može učiniti kako bi se situacija poboljšala.

Aleks Džefri, gostujući profesor na Cambridge Univerzitetu, istakao je da je jedan od velikih uspeha u savremenom Mostaru cvetanje inicijativa organizacija civilnog društva koje nastoje da prekinu stagnaciju koja karakteriše izborni proces tokom proteklih devet godina, ističući da je emigracija jedna od posledica kontinuirane političke stagnacije u Mostaru.

U ime koalicije ELECT Mostar, situaciju u mostaru predstavili su direktorica Agencije Lokalne Demokratije (LDA Mostar), Dženana Dedić i Vladimir Ćorić, direktor OKC Abrašević.
Koalicija ELECT Mostar, koju trenutno sačinjavaju tri organizacije civilnog društva – Agencija Lokalne Demokratije Mostar, OKC Abrašević i Omladinski savet grada Mostara – održali su akciju u Mostaru na dan poslednjih lokalnih izbora u Bosni i Hercegovini, 2. oktobra 2016. godine. Građani Mostara imali su priliku da “glasaju” na tri gradske lokacije stavljajući svoje “glasačke listiće” sa odgovorima na postavljena pitanja. Građani su odgovorili na brojna pitanja, potvrđujući njihovo nezadovoljstvo postojećom situacijom. Akcija ELECT Mostar dobro je prihvaćena od strane građana, a ceo događaj je ispraćen i emitovan od strane lokalnih i regionalnih medija, kao i međunarodne zajednice. ELECT Mostar je realizovala grupa građanskih organizacija koje su aktivne na području grada Mostara i bave se pitanjima omladine: Agencija Lokalne Demokratije Mostar, Omladinski savet grada Mostara, OKC Abrašević i Asocijacija mladih psihologa Sensus. Naknadno su se pridružile još dve organizacije: Snaga Mladih i Udruženje ELSA (The European Law Students’ Association Mostar)
Ideja o aktivnosti ELECT Mostar nastala je na sastanku Lokalne omladinske savetodavne grupe 2016. godine, u okviru projektnih aktivnosti Regionalne platforme za učešće i dijalog mladih Balkana, sufinansiranog od strane EU.

Gospođa Dedić predstavila je rad Koalicija i aktivnosti koje su sprovedene i naglasila da je jedan od najvećih problema masovno napuštanje BiH, posebno mladih ljudi, dok je Ćorić opisao političku situaciju kako na državnom, tako i na lokalnom nivou i apelovao na međunarodnu zajednicu za pružanje rešenja.

Konačno, situaciju u Mostaru predstavio je projektni menadžer Centra za Dijalog Nansen, Vernes Voloder, koji je pristupio mostarskom problemu sa sociološkog aspekta, naglašavajući da Mostar nije podeljen grad kada su u pitanju međuljudski odnosi građana, već je podela stvorena i prisutna na političkom nivou.

Uprkos složenosti situacije, kongres poziva vlasti na svim nivoima da rade na održivom rešenju za obnovu lokalne demokratije u Mostaru, izmenom zakonodavstva, posebno zakona o izborima i statuta grada Mostara.
Kongres će nastaviti da pažljivo prati situaciju u bliskoj saradnji sa Komitetom regiona Evropske unije, uz posvećenost održavanja pitanja lokalne demokratije i političke agende u Mostaru sve dok se ne pronađe odgovarajuće rešenje.

مؤتمر مجلس أوروبا يدرس الوضع السائد في مدينة موستار

بمناسبة انعقاد دورتها 33, بمدينة ستراسبورغ, في فرنسا, نظمت غرفة السلطات المحلية, التابعة للمؤتمر المحلي والسلطات المحلية, لمجلس أوروبا, طاولة مستديرة حول الوضع السائد في مدينة موستار, بالبوسنة والهرسك

***

تمر مدينة موستار ومواطنوها بظروف صعبة جدا بسبب تغيب مجلس بلدية المدينة, منذ 2012, وعدم تنظيم أي انتخابات محلية منذ 2008.

خلال آخر انتخابات محلية نظمت بالبوسنة والهرسك سنة 2016, افتتح ستيوارت ديكسون, مقرر المؤتمر, أشغال الطاولة المستديرة بتقديم أسباب احتجاب المسار الانتخابي بمدينة موستار ثم تلا الملخص الوارد في تقرير المراقبين. في ذات السياق, أشار ديكسون إلى عدم وجود أي حزب سياسي يرغب في حل المشاكل القائمة بمدينة موستار. في ذات السياق, أكد ديكسون أن المؤتمر ما انفك يدعم المواطنين في موستار ويصر على تقديم المساعدة لهم وحثهم على اكتساب حقوقهم الديمقراطية, إضافة إلى  دعوة مجلس أوروبا إلى أخذ على محمل الجد كل ما شأنه أن يساعد على تحسين الوضع.

ألكس جافري, أكد هذا الأستاذ الزائر, من جامعة كامبريدج, أن أحد أهم النجاحات المسجلة في مدينة موستار الحديثة, تكمن في تقديم المبادرات الصادرة عن المجتمع المدني والساعية إلى رفع التحدي المتمثل في الركود والانغلاق الذي ما انفك يتهدد المسار الانتخابي خلال التسع سنوات الماضية, مع التركيز على أحدى تبعات الركود السياسي المتواصل بمدينة موستار, ألا وهي معضلة الهجرة.

باسم ائتلاف ألكت ( ELECT  )موستار, تم تقديم عرض حول الوضع السائد بمدينة موستار, من قبل مدير وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بموستار,دجينانا ديدتش, وفلاديمير كوريتش, مدير OKC أبرازافيتش.

نظم إئتلاف ألكت (ELECT) بموستار الذي يشمل ثلاثة منظمات غير حكومية الآن – وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بموستار,  OKC أبرازافيتش ومجلس الشباب لمدينة موستار – تظاهرة بمدينة موستار حول اليوم الذي شهد تنظيم آخر انتخابات بالبوسنة والهرسك, بتاريخ 2 أكتوبر (جمادى الاول) 2016. مثلت هذه التظاهرة فرصة سانحة لسكان مدينة موستار للإدلاء بأصواتهم في ثلاثة مكاتب انتخاب بالمدينة, حيث مكنتهم من القيام بعملية الاقتراع والإدلاء “بأصواتهم” وتقديم الأجوبة حول الأسئلة المطروحة. تولى المتساكنون الرد على عدد من المسائل للإعراب عن عدم رضاهم بالوضع الراهن. حضيت تظاهرة ألكت موستار بقبول جيد من قبل المتساكنين وتم الترويج لها من قبل وسائل الإعلام المحلية والإقليمية, إضافة إلى الاهتمام الواسع الذي لاقته من قبل المجموعة الدولية. نظمت تظاهرة ألكت موستار من قبل مجموعة من جمعيات المواطنين النشطاء بمنطقة موستار والذين يركزوا اهتمامهم على قضايا الشباب: وكالة الديمقراطية المحلية بموستار ومجلس الشباب لمدينة موستار- و OKC أبرازافيتش وجمعية سنسيس (Sensus)لعلماء النفس الشباب. ثم انمضت لهذه التظاهرة, لاحقا, منظمتان إضافيتان للمشاركة في الأنشطة: يوث باور (Youth Power) والجمعية الأوروبية لطلبة القانون ألسا (ELSA) موستار.

نشأت فكرة تنظيم نشاط ألكت موستار أثناء اللقاء الذي نظمته المجموعة الاستشارية المحلية للشباب سنة 2016, كجزء من الأنشطة المضمنة في المشروع للمنصة الإقليمية لمنطقة البلقان لمشاركة الشباب والحوار, وذلك بمبادرة مشتركة مع الاتحاد الأوروبي.

كما تناول الكلمة ديدتش لتقديم عمل الائتلاف وعرض الأنشطة التي تم إنجازها, إضافة إلى التأكيد على المشاكل الناجمة عن التجاهل الجماعي والمنتشرة بشكل واسع في البوسنة والهرسك, وخاصة منها التي تستهدف الشباب. وبدوره تناول كوريتش الكلمة لمسليط الضوء على الوضع السياسي, على المستويين الوطني والمحلي, مستغلا هذه الفرصة لدعوة المجتمع الدولي إلى التدخل واقتراح الحلول الناجعة في هذا الإطار.

وفي الختام, استمع الحضور إلى عرض حول الوضع السائد في موستار, قدمه فارناس فولودر, مدير المشروع بمركز نانسن للحوار, والذي تناول بالبحث فيه المشكل من الجانب السوسيولوجي, مع التأكيد على أن موستار لا تعتبر مدينة منقسمة كلما ارتبط الأمر بعلاقات التواصل الشخصية بين المواطنين, بالرغم من الإقرار بوجود هذه الانقسامات على المستوى السياسي.

مع وعيه بتشعب الوضع, ما انفك المؤتمر يحث السلطات على بذل الجهود, على مختلف المستويات, لتوفير حلول مستدامة وإعادة الديمقراطية المحلية إلى مدينة موستار, وذلك بتنقيح القوانين والتشريعات المعتمدة, وخاصة قانون الانتخابات والنظام الأساسي للمدينة.

المسؤولون عن المؤتمر عاقدون العزم على مواصلة مراقبة الوضع عن كثب ومواصلة التعاون الوثيق مع مجموعة المناطق الأوروبية, إضافة إلى التزامهم بتدوين كافة المسائل المتعلقة بالديمقراطية المحلية في مدينة موستار على جدول أعماله وذلك إلى غاية التوصل إلى إيجاد حل ملائم لفائدة الجميع.

LDA Armenia joined CORLEAP 2017 in Yerevan

The director of LDA Armenia, Lusine Aleksandryan, brought ALDA to the Conference for Regional and Local authorities for Eastern Partnership (CORLEAP).
***

The 2017 session of this yearly conference focused on  “Innovative and regional development: Agents for growth in Eastern Partnership countries” and took place on October 24th in Yerevan, Armenia.

The conference was attended by international and local government representatives, by members of European Committee of Regions and by local authorities. Mr. Vache Terteryan, First Deputy Minister of Territorial Administration and Development of the Republic of Armenia, moderated the panel.

E-governance experiences from EAP countries were presented during the conference. Ms, Jelizaveta Krenjova from Estonia and Mr.David Melua from Georgia  introduced the audience to the topics of online voting and highlighted the benefits of using social networks to foster citizens online participation in council meetings.

Latvian delegate Andris Jaunsleinis focused the attention of the audience on the fact that while e-governance is a very useful and easy tool,  it cannot work without both governmental support and citizens participation. The progress and implementation of Mayor for Economic Growth projects was presented by Mrs. Viola Calabrese, Programme Manager from the European Commission, who pointed out that the main problem that every community has to tackle is the lack of economic development vision and plan.

Mr. Terteryan concluded that all the discussed issues comply with the priorities and strategic plans that will be implemented by the Armenian government in the next future.

“Development of a unique e-governance system is quite possible and necessary for Armenia. As CORLEAP is an effective tool for promotion of EAP priorities targeting local authorities, I suggest to organize the next meeting not in Yerevan but in smaller communities across the country” with these words H.E. Piotr Antoni Switalski, Head of the European Union Delegation to the Republic of Armenia, closed the conference.

The European Movement pushes for the recognition of EU symbols in France

The European Movement in France (« Mouvement Européen – France ») has called on the French President to sign Declaration n°52 of the Lisbon treaty to officially recognize EU symbols in France. Following the requests of the European Movement in France, Emmanuel Macron has announced that France will officially recognize the European flag and anthem later this month.

***

Jean-Luc Mélenchon and his parliamentary group, la France Insoumise, tried to ban the European flag from the National Assembly by changing internal Assembly rules. This has been possible due to the fact that France never signed Declaration 52, which unites 16 countries by declaring that: « the flag with a circle of twelve golden stars on a blue background, the anthem based on the ‘Ode to Joy’ from the Ninth Symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven, the motto ‘United in diversity’, the euro as the currency of the European Union and Europe Day on 9 May will for them continue as symbols to express the sense of community of the people in the European Union and their allegiance to it ».

The European Movement’s French branch called on Emmanuel Macron to sign the Declaration last June, after Jean-Luc Mélenchon denounced the EU flag as a “Christian symbol”. Building on this narrative, Yves Bertoncini – President of the European Movement in France – drew attention to the French flag while appearing in various national media, noting that the white color on the flag of the French Republic first symbolized monarchy. Raising the European flag doesn’t represent a Christian Europe; neither does it limit public debate on the decisions and the future of the European Union. It simply symbolizes our belonging to the European project, to which the French people feel attached.
