The aim of the study is to provide a comprehensive assessment of civil society in Montenegro and the environment that it works in, including its strengths and weaknesses, and its impacts to date and the challenges it faces to its further development.
The study is based upon a combination of desk research embracing all relevant documentation, including legal and financial legislation applicable to civil society, previous civil society analyses and evaluations, policy documents and country-specific academic literature, and a consultative stakeholder analysis carried out by means of focus groups, interviews and questionnaire surveys with civil society organisations (CSOs), government actors, donor organisations and other institutional players.
