Goal: Civil society is more resilient to shrinking civic space challenges and able to better perform its watchdog, advocacy and citizen engagement roles as a result of an improved enabling environment.

Objectives

Improved ability of civil society organizations to respond to new and emerging civic space challenges: While Serbia has generally a well developed and active civil society, the sector’s ability to remain resilient and respond jointly to emerging challenges has been spotty. Some challenges like new legislation and IT/cyber threats, require new knowledge and skills not widely understood or practiced by Serbia’s CSOs. In addition, understanding and planning for legal defense as well as litigation strategies are new areas that should be explored.
Improved Enabling Environment for Civil Society: According to USAID’s Civil Society Sustainability Index, the score for the legal enabling environment for civil society has been declining for four years in a row. While this has primarily been due to factors related to “harassment” and limited engagement of civil society organizations in policy development, there has also been a lack of structured dialogue and systemic action around different factors and policies affecting civil society.
