Local and regional democracy in the Balkans
Programs » Local and regional democracy in the Balkans
FEDRE has been very active in the Balkans for the past few years, where it has been contributing to the creation and consolidation of networks of local and regional economic and political stakeholders. FEDRE has also been trying to unite the new networks of local initiatives, which it belongs to, such as the Agencies for Local Democracy (ALDA) or the National Associations of Local Authorities of South-Eastern Europe (NALAs), with other existing networks. Moreover, FEDRE organizes, together with the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe, each year a Forum of the Cities and Regions of South-East Europe.
The FEDRE is the only organization from outside the Balkans which sits as an elected member of an authority of NALAS.
