Ahead of the review cycle of the Guidelines for EU support to civil society in enlargement countries, 2014-2020,  BCSDN has prepared a brief Position paper outlining the lessons learned and the key recommendations for the new Guidelines past 2020.

The new Guidelines should set clear priorities of what the EU assistance aims to achieve in the upcoming period, and a clear results-oriented framework focused on the quality of practice, rather than quantitative indicators. Well-thought and consistent monitoring methodology needs to be set from the start.
