This report presents an update to the ‘CSO Meter’ report produced in 2019 to assess the 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).
The CSO Meter 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 and a group of non-governmental organisations from the Eastern Partnership countries.
The research methods include analysis of legal acts, available researches and other documents and materials, focus group discussions (FGDs) with participation of CSOs, expert interviews and CSO online survey.
