Abstract (English)

“Civil Society-Monitoring in CEE” is a monitoring study conducted by the Competence Center for NPOs and SE in collaboration with the ERSTE Foundation and a group of local experts in Central and Eastern Europe. The aim of the project is to reveal recent developments in the Civil Society sector in 16 CEE-countries as well as to enhance the visibility of the sector and to improve the public perception of its many facets. As part of this process, the study also seeks to strengthen Civil Society Organizations’ (CSOs) awareness of being an integrative part of Civil Society. In addition, by involving researchers from various countries, the study furthermore aims to promote networking in the scientific communities as well as to support future research efforts on the topic of Civil Society.
