Proposal for the panel discussion: Four current topics of election campaign financing in Serbia and the experience of the Czech Republic

Transparency Serbia has been monitoring the financing of political parties and election campaigns in Serbia
since the adoption of the Law on Financing of Parties from 2003 and the actions of state bodies responsible
for controlling the financing of election campaigns. The central part of the monitoring is the independent
collection of data on the most important costs of the election campaign and comparison with the data
reported in the reports. In this way, we monitored the elections held in 2004, 2007, 2008, 2012, 2014,
2017, 2018 and 2020. During the last year, together with colleagues from Transparency International in the
Czech Republic, we surveyed the transparency of election campaign financing.1
