The Association Local Democracy Agency (LDA) Mostar (Bosnia and Herzegovina) is a non-profit organization founded with the aim of promoting basic democratic values such as: rule of law, protection of human rights and freedom, minorities’ rights protection, democratization processes, socio-economic development, multiculturalism, European integration, decentralization, regionalisation, and local development.
Since its establishment, in November 2004, Local Democracy Agency (LDA) Mostar acts as a locally registered non-profit, nongovernmental organization, with the support of its partners and in cooperation with other Local Democracy Agencies and with the European Association for Local Democracy (ALDA). This co-operation, both at the local and regional level, has enabled several activities and projects for the development of the local community and its inclusion into processes at the regional level.
The activities of LDA Mostar, which aim to create a more active citizenship, on one side, and transparent and accountable local authorities, on the other, are focused on the development of a modern democratic society. These activities entangle every segment of life of the local community and offer a possibility of improving the living standard of all categories of the society by directly influencing concrete changes.
LDA Mostar is a resource centre for cantonal / county government institutions, City administration and civil society, with the aim of harmonizing standards with the democratic standards of the European Union. Its mission is to support the process of democratization in the City of Mostar, by strengthening good governance and building the capacity of local authorities and civil society, as well as promoting citizen participation in public life.
