This report presents an update to the CSO Meter report produced in 2019 to assess enabling environment for civil society organisations (CSOs) from the Republic of Moldova. The CSO Meter is a tool developed to assess the civil society environment in the EU’s Eastern partner countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine).
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.
Promo-LEX Association is the project partner in the Republic of Moldova. The update has been prepared through analysis of legal acts, recent researches and other materials, and expert interviews. The report reflects the most significant updates in 10 areas of CSO Meter and suggests key priorities for improvement.
