[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The title of the project is Putting the ‘People’ in People’s Parliament: Scaling up inclusive participation in South African Legislatures to enhance democratic oversight (referred to as the PPIPP project) – an EU funded project. PEERC is one of the five co-applicants who are involved in this initiative. The project contributes to building a more capable and accountable state through leveraging mechanisms for direct political participation of the public to increase the capacity and performance of legislatures to fulfil their constitutional mandates to oversee executive performance, develop law and respond to the public.
Overall objective. To contribute to building a more capable and accountable state through leveraging mechanisms for direct political participation of the public within South Africa’s participatory democracy in order to increase the capacity and performance of legislatures to fulfil their constitutional mandates to oversee executive performance, develop law and respond to the public.
Specific objective. To increase the capacities and collective actions of CSOs – emphasising those working with women towards gender equality in order to increase women’s ongoing political participation – to monitor executive performance and increase accountability, through expanded information on and access to committee processes in the legislatures in order to achieve greater utilisation by CSOs of the opportunities for participation through committees’ oversight and budget monitoring processes.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_raw_js]JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjIxMDAlMjUlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjI0NTAlMjIlMjBzcmMlM0QlMjJodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy55b3V0dWJlLmNvbSUyRmVtYmVkJTJGaVRqU3hpRG1aTTQlMjIlMjB0aXRsZSUzRCUyMllvdVR1YmUlMjB2aWRlbyUyMHBsYXllciUyMiUyMGZyYW1lYm9yZGVyJTNEJTIyMCUyMiUyMGFsbG93JTNEJTIyYWNjZWxlcm9tZXRlciUzQiUyMGF1dG9wbGF5JTNCJTIwY2xpcGJvYXJkLXdyaXRlJTNCJTIwZW5jcnlwdGVkLW1lZGlhJTNCJTIwZ3lyb3Njb3BlJTNCJTIwcGljdHVyZS1pbi1waWN0dXJlJTIyJTIwYWxsb3dmdWxsc2NyZWVuJTNFJTNDJTJGaWZyYW1lJTNF[/vc_raw_js][/vc_column][/vc_row]
