  • Civil Society score improved from 4.25 to 4.50. In 2018, civil society organizations were significantly more active in many policy processes, consulting on the rule of law, anti-corruption, gender equality, and European integration initiatives, as well as public administration reform among others. In addition, NGOs’ capacities to monitor the judicial and prosecutorial systems increased. However, financial stability for civil society organizations remains a challenge, and could become more acute with foreign sources of funding slowly drying up.
