Estonia Mid-Term Report 2016-2018 – For Public Comment

In 2018, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the progress report for Estonia’s third action plan. The report covers the development and first year of implementation of the action plan July 2016 through June 2017.

In Estonia, the IRM researcher Dr. Kristiina Tõnnisson of the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies at the University of Tartu’s findings in the report are summarized below:

“Estonia’s third action plan derived its commitments from pre-existing government initiatives, including focused, citizen-centred public services, and open and inclusive policy-making. Civil society stakeholders expressed concerns over the lack of consultation during implementation. Moving forward, Estonia should ensure greater civil society involvement in both action plan development and implementation, and allocate funds to the implementation of more ambitious commitments.”

And in Estonian:

“Eesti kolmanda tegevusplaani lubadused tulenesid valitsuse juba olemasolevatest algatustest, sealhulgas kodanikukesksed avalikud teenused ning avatud ja kaasav poliitikakujundamine. Vabaühendused väljendasid muret, et teostamise faasis puudus piisav koostöö. Tulevikus peaks tegevusplaani kavandamisse ja rakendamisse paremini kaasama kodanikuühiskonda ning eraldama rohkem ressursse ambitsioonikamate lubaduste elluviimiseks.”

The version of the report for public comment is available in English and Estonian below. The two-week public comment period closed on 27 April 2018.
