BCSDN published its 11th consecutive analysis of the European Commission Enlargement Package 2020, assessing the progress made in the area of civil society development and dialogue with public institutions in Enlargement countries, and published recently, against BCSDN’s Monitoring Matrix on Enabling Environment for Civil Society Development. Regarding the overall progress in the enabling environment for civil society operations, improvements are evaluated in Kosovo, Montenegro, and North Macedonia. While an enabling environment for civil society “still needs to be established on the ground” in Serbia, no progress was identified in Albania and BiH. The “space for civil society to operate freely has continued to diminish” in Turkey. Read and download the analysis here.
