CSO Meter report

This report presents an update to the CSO Meter report produced in 2019 to assess enabling environment for CSOs and covers the relevant developments in the period of October 2019 – July 2020. CSO Meter is a tool developed to assess the civil society environment in Eastern Partnership countries. It consists of a set of standards and indicators in 10 different areas that measure both law and practice. 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 Stichting and a group of non-governmental organisations from the Eastern Partnership countries. Transparency International Anticorruption Center (TIAC) is the project partner in Armenia. The update has been prepared through analy-sis of legal acts, recent researches and other materials, and expert interviews and con-sultations. The report reflects the most significant updates in 10 areas of CSO Meter and suggests key priorities for improvement.
