Southeast Europe Leadership for Development and Integrity (SELDI)
is an anti-corruption and good governance coalition created in November 2012 by 17 likeminded CSOs in Southeast Europe, involving partners from nine countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo*, Republic of North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey). As of 2020, it encompasses 39 members (CSOs and anti-corruption agencies) from 14 countries (including Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Romania). The Network is operating on the basis of joint strategy and agreed action agenda. Its objective is to contribute to a dynamic civil society in the region, capable of participating in public debate and influencing policy and decision-making process in the area of anti-corruption and good governance. The regional initiative is a continuation of the Southeast European Legal Development Initiative (SELDI), created in 1999 by leading not-for-profit organizations, representatives of government institutions and experts from the countries of Southeast Europe aimed at public-private coalition building for legal development in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Republic of Macedonia, Romania, Slovenia and Turkey.
The SELDI initiative aims to implement the following activities:
- Coalition building for the development and endorsement of a regional CSO strategy and action agenda;
- Good governance monitoring (including CSOs trainings, production of comparative studies, country-specific and regional Anti-Corruption Reports);
- Public awareness and outreach (including Regional Good Governance and Anti-Corruption Policy Forums, media outreach).
