“Triple A for Citizens: Access to Information, Advice and Active Help” project is implemented in the framework of the European Commission’s Partnership programme for Civil Society organisations. It is entering its fourth year of implementation in 2016 and has expanded over the years to all countries of the Western Balkans and Turkey. The implementing partners are as follows: the lead organisation European Citizen Action Service (ECAS), Belgium; National Association of Citizens Information Services (NACIS), Ireland; National Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux (NACAB), Romania; Law Centres Network (LCN), UK; Association for Democratic Initiatives (ADI), Bosnia and Herzegovina; Civil Rights Program (CRP/K), Kosovo; Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights (YUCOM), Serbia; Association of Civil Society Development Centre (STGM), Turkey; Macedonian Young Lawyers Association (MYLA), Center for Monitoring and Research (CEMI), Montenegro, and Open Society Foundation Albania (OSFA).
Immediate objective of the project is to expand the concept of providing legal assistance to citizens on territoriy of Western Balkans and Turkey. Within this project, the ADI will conduct an analysis of obstacles faced by citizens who try to exercise their rights in courts and government bodies, and gain a deeper insight into the experience with free legal aid as a mechanism that is available to those citizens who are faced with financial barriers or discrimination in the exercise of their rights.
The implementation period of the project: March 1, 2015 – November 30, 2016
The project is supported by the European Commission.
