Project Description: IDM conducted a survey of public opinion about citizen’s participation in governance and decision-making and public perceptions about the local government. Two questionnaires were distributed to structured samples of citizens in five cities of the country. The conclusions of the survey were published in a book, For an active community in governance, which was distributed to units of local government, NGOs, academic institutions and international organizations working in Albania. The results of the survey have been consulted and referred to many other actors in the field. This constituted the basis for building direct activities of IDM to improve governance at the local level.
