ECNL: The CSO Meter regarding assessing civil society environment in the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries

The European Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ECNL) has launched a new website assessing civil society environment in the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries.

Based on a unique methodology, the CSO Meter has been designed to support regular and consistent monitoring of civil society environment in the EaP countries.

The CSO Meter evaluates CSOs’ legal framework as well as the situation in practice in 10 areas, such as freedom of association, assembly and expression, access to funding or the right to participation. Country reports include recommendations for each of the areas: these will serve as a basis for future reforms to improve the environment for civil society locally.

The CSO Meter is now being piloted in all six EaP countries.  The first country report from Moldova is now online, with reports from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia and Ukraine to follow in the coming weeks.
