Just Ask

Just Ask is a platform for exchanging ideas and opinions related to public policy. The platform allows every citizen to ask a question and comment on social problems, and in return to receive a relevant answer or solution from a representative of a civil society organization or public institution.

In addition, on Just Ask you can regularly find information on various social topics and results of the work of the civil society sector in several areas: electoral reform, education, health and quality of life, diversity and social cohesion, judicial reform and rule of law, youth issues, human rights and the fight against discrimination.

Just Ask is funded by the British Embassy Skopje as part of the project “Promoting Good Governance through Civic Engagement for Improved Transparency and Accountability of Institutions in Macedonia”.
