A survey, targeted research, and seminars (virtual and physical) would be the main tools to outline the state of Civil Society, evaluate its performance and identify the challenges to be addressed, leading to a drafting of relevant policy recommendations. The project partners are the National Foundation for Civil Society Development (leader), Croatia; Fotoessa, Greece; the House of Europe in Rhodes; the European Institute of the Mediterranean, Spain; and the CIES.
