One of the objectives of “Civil Society. Dialogue for Progress” is to conduct mappings of CSOs in the six target countries, identifying and analysing civil society actors' needs and capacities to get involved in policy dialogue in each country. The goal of the mapping exercises is to provide the EU with an in-depth analysis of the CSO landscape in each country. The ways in which these actors can contribute to specific sector policy dialogues is also covered. The mappings should be a useful tool for EU Delegations, DG DEVCO (and other donors) to define national and regional engagement with CSOs. The results of the mapping can be viewed in the different country sections. Currently further research activities are carried out in different formats like mini-mappings or baseline studies on special requests from the European Delegations or the European Commission.
Examines the environment in which CSOs function and operate, and evaluates the capacity and needs of CSOs with regard to influencing policy formulation and monitoring implementation of policies in Georgia.
The mapping study is aimed at assessing the opportunities and context of the CSOs’ activities as a partner of public state authorities in public policy-making in Ukraine.

Our Next Steps
“The research component in general and the CSO-mapping studies in particular aim at identifying the needs of CSOs and the problems they face when trying to be engaged in policy dialogue. They should help to make our and the EU’s assistance in general targeted and sustainable. Our research activities in the coming months will be determined by the specific needs of the civil societies or the European Delegations in the Eastern Partnership countries. Get in touch with us.“
