Civil Society Forum in Central and Eastern Europe
The Civil Society Forum in Central and Eastern Europe will provide the opportunities for NGOs from countries in the region to come together, share experiences and discuss the future – working on solutions, ideas and strategies.
The first edition of the Forum will start through a broader introduction on the political and economic context of the Central and Eastern Europe societies. Findings of recent comparative policy research carried out in ten post-communist countries will be presented and the participants will be invited to reflect on a series of essential questions. In addition, the participants will share their own reflections on the development and impact of the economic crisis in Central and Eastern Europe, advancing hypotheses as to its effect on civil society infrastructure, governmental policy and philanthropy in general.
The Forum is organised by the Civil Society Development Foundation (CSDF), the operator of the EEA Grants' NGO programme in Romania.
