CSO METER: Assessing the civil society environment in the Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia 2020)

This report presents an update to the ‘CSO Meter’ report produced in 2019 to assess enabling environment for civil society organisations (CSOs) and covers the relevant developments in the period of October 2019 – July 2020.

The CSO Meter is a tool developed to assess the civil society environment in six EU’s Eastern partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine). It consists of a set of standards and indicators in 10 different areas that measure both law and practice. It was developed within the framework of the “Monitoring Progress, Empowering Action” project funded by the European Union and implemented by the European Center for Not-for-Profit Law Stichting and a group of non-governmental organisations from the Eastern partner countries.

Transparency International Anticorruption Center (TIAC) is the project partner in Armenia. The update has been prepared through analysis of legal acts, recent researches and other materials, and expert interviews and consultations. The report reflects the most significant updates in 10 areas of CSO Meter and suggests key priorities for improvement.
