Gothenburg tightens control over publicly funded associations

Published måndag 12 mars kl 12.46

After police and civil society actors raised alarm regarding publicly funded associations' alleged involvement in extremism and crime, the City of Gothenburg is changing its funding processes.

Gothenburg City Council has evaluated both its funding system and routines for renting out public premises to associations.

The reviewe revealed poor coordination among different parts of the city administration, as well as a lack of monitoring and follow-ups for funded projects.

By the end of March, the council will adopt new routines to ensure that the funding-decisions are streamlined and that monitoring and follow-up processes are improved.

"On paper, it looks like we have a thriving community, but in reality, on the street, we don't see the results in terms of activities," said Jahja Zeqiraj, a Social Democrat chairman of the Gothenburg borough of Västra Hisingen.
