This Regional Report is based on the country Monitoring Matrix reports produced in the scope of the “Balkan Civil Society Acquis – Strengthening the Advocacy and Monitoring Potential and Capacities of Civil Society Organizations”, a project funded by the European Union (EU) and the Balkan Trust for Democracy (BTD). The monitoring is conducted based on the Monitoring Matrix on Enabling Environment for Civil Society Development (CSDev). The Monitoring Matrix was developed as a collective effort of CSO experts and practitioners from the BCSDN network of members and partners and the European Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ECNL). The Regional Monitoring Report is the first comprehensive report on the policy and legal framework that governs the civil society in the Western Balkans and Turkey (WBT) region.
