Coalition prEUgovor - monitoring reforms under Chapters 23 and 24

The prEUgovor coalition consists of seven civil society organizations from Serbia that are experts in various policies within Chapters 23 and 24 of the negotiations on membership in the European Union.

The mission of the prEUgovor coalition is to monitor the implementation of policies in the field of justice and fundamental rights (Chapter 23) and justice, freedom and security (Chapter 24) and propose measures to improve the situation, using the EU integration process to make substantial progress in further democratization of Serbia.

In May 2013, civil society organizations gathered in the prEUgovor coalition based on the expertise they had built through their long-term specialization in certain issues covering Chapters 23 and 24.

The Coalition prEUgovor arose from the need for synergy of potentials and knowledge of these organizations in order to faster and more efficiently achieve and successfully apply European values ​​and standards.

The main product of the pre-agreement is the semi-annual independent progress report on Serbia in Chapters 23 and 24. In addition, the pre-agreement is published by REUformator - a specialized monthly bulletin dedicated to developments in Serbia and the EU in the areas covered by Chapters 23 and 24.

The prEUgovor coalition consists of:
• ASTRA Action against trafficking in human beings
• Autonomous Women's Center (AWC)
• Belgrade Center for Security Policy (BCSP)
• Center for Investigative Reporting in Serbia (CINS)
• Center for Applied European Studies (CPES)
• Group 484
• Transparency Serbia (TS)

Coalition prEUgovor in accordance with the mission, goals and specific fields of expertise of member organizations during Serbia's negotiations for EU membership implements the following activities:
1) Development of methodology, criteria, indicators and techniques for monitoring policies and processes within Chapters 23 and 24;
2) Formulation of recommendations and monitoring of the course of negotiations using a common methodology and report format in the areas from Chapters 23 and 24;
3) Work on achieving the basic preconditions for the participation of the coalition prEUgovor and other CSOs in the process of European integration, which is conditioned by Serbia's negotiations for EU membership;
4) Presenting specific proposals for amendments to laws in the areas covered by Chapters 23 and 24 and monitoring the implementation of newly adopted laws;
5) Providing authentic sources of information on the process of Serbia's accession to the EU;
6) Carrying out activities of presenting and advocating the application of analysis findings and recommendations, seeking the support of key actors and informing the public about the negative consequences of not involving CSOs in the negotiation process;
7) Define and implement a communication strategy both within the coalition and in communication with other actors in Serbia and the EU;
8) Improving the knowledge of coalition members on the EU accession process, the content of negotiation chapters and ways of representing the views and recommendations of the coalition.

In setting the criteria for assessing the harmonization of the social, economic, political and legal space of Serbia with European standards and norms, the prEUgovor coalition is guided by European values ​​and standards contained in the Acquis communautaire.
