The participation of citizens in the processes of decision making is a fundamental principle of democracy.Along with conventional forms of civil participation in modern democracies, there is also an effort for more widened citizen participation in the so-called.” daily management”, through which citizens influence the decisions of public policy at the stage of its preparation, implementation and evaluation. In this context, the report aims to outline the reasons and means (ie. methodology) of active citizen participation in local government. The ultimate goal is to improve their cooperation, to increase resources for effective citizens participation in cross- border initiatives at local and regional level.
