In February 2022, the NGO Support Centre launched a survey for mapping the needs and challenges of CSOs in Cyprus, aiming at collecting representative data which would highlight the best ways to support the organisations and to maximise their social impact. The purpose of this report is to publish the results of the survey and the key findings of the focus group discussions and to provide a resource for stakeholders that can be used to inform their present and future actions aiming at supporting and strengthening civil society in Cyprus.
The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights report constitutes background material for a comparative report for the project “Fundamental Rights Platform and cooperation with civil society”. The country research was prepared by FRA’s research network FRANET for the report ‘Protecting civic space in the EU’.
The Capacity Assessment report highlights the findings of an island-wide research on the capacities of CSOs in Cyprus that was carried out by the NGO Support Centre and the Management Centre of the Mediterranean, through the “Cypriot Civil Society Mapping and Capacity Building Project”. It covers various thematic areas that are relevant to the work of CSOs in the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities.
The European Union’s Development Co-operation Policy in the context of the Presidency of the EU Council in 2012
This report looks into the EU’s development co-operation policy within the framework of the Presidency of the EU Council. It is the result of fruitful co-operation between the Global Development Research Group (GDRG), the Polish Humanitarian Action (PAH), the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) and the NGO Support Centre.
The publication was produced within the framework of the project “Knowledge Makes Change” in 2012.
An Assessment of Civil Society in Cyprus. A Map for the Future – 2011
The Civil Society Index is a participatory action-research project assessing the state of civil society. It has now been implemented in its different phases in over 70 countries around the world. The CSI is initiated and implemented by, and for, civil society organisations (CSOs) at the country level, in partnership with CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation.
Due to the current division of the island, the CSI research was conducted separately in the Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot communities. It was conducted jointly by the NGO Support Centre and the Management Centre of the Mediterranean, and was supported by UNDP – ACT.
