Vuk developed a number of initiatives and projects aimed at promoting the principles of open government and greater public participation in policy-making, including the Citizens’ Voice, South Eastern Europe’s first government e-petition website. He designed and managed the public engagement campaign “Be Responsible”, winning the Open Government Partnership’s Gold Award on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York in 2014.
In recent years, he spoke on the topics of public communication, good governance and public diplomacy at events in the United States, UK, Belgium, Italy, Turkey and throughout South East Europe.
Vuk is a member of the Club of Venice, Europe’s oldest and most prominent forum of senior government communicators. In 2012, he became the first-ever European member of the United States National Association of Government Communicators. His articles on public sector communications were published in several leading professional publications, including the Guardian’s Public Leaders Network.
