Ms. Maja Markovic serves as a Program Coordinator with Juventas, an NGO that provides social care and services to vulnerable populations in Montenegro. As part of her work, she coordinates the implementation of projects, conducts policy analysis in the areas of social policy, youth activism, and human rights, and works to strengthen the capacity of NGOs. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, and a Master’s degree in International Affairs from the University of Montenegro. She also holds a Master of Arts in Public Administration from the University of Birmingham. As a Humphrey Fellow, Ms. Markovic wants to deepen her knowledge of social policy, policy implementation, and social services delivery. She also wants to learn more about public-private partnerships, and how such partnerships boost resources and capacity in the social services field. With the knowledge she gains, Ms. Markovic plans to help local NGOs adopt more effective models of service delivery, evaluate their projects and programs for effectiveness, and develop partnerships with state agencies. She also plans to help decentralize the social care system in Montenegro.
