Dear civil society colleague,

There’s still time to take part in the EU’s major survey on civil society in the Western Balkans and Türkiye.

We are extending the survey deadline to 18 February 2024.

The European Commission, DG NEAR, through the EU TACSO 3 project, invites you to share your insights on the state of civil society. This survey is part of our ongoing assessment of civil society and its enabling environment, based on the DG NEAR Guidelines for EU Support to Civil Society for 2021-2027.

Your feedback is crucial. It helps the EU understand the changes since findings from 2021 and contributes directly to the EU’s annual reports on our region’s journey towards EU integration. It also informs future planning for further EU support for civil society.

All members of civil society are invited to contribute; whether you belong to an informal community group, large NGO, social enterprise, trade union, formal Civil Society Organisation, Foundation, or any other type of non-profit, non-governmental organisation, please take the survey and have your voice heard.
