Participants from the National Assembly, the Government, the Ombudsperson’s Office, the Commission for the Protection of Equality, and civil society in Serbia discussed ways to enhance the capacity of the National Assembly with experts from the UK, Latvia and Go-Governance Austria organised by the OSCE. “A strong parliament with effective oversight mechanisms and bodies is the key to a democratic system of checks and balances,” said Alice Thomas, Acting Chief of ODIHR’s Legislative Support Unit. Vladimir Cvijan, the Chairperson of the Constitution and Legislative Issues Committee of the National Assembly added, “We are confident that the recommendations made at this workshop will help us reach this goal, and enhance the role of the Assembly in general.”
