From 2016 onwards, the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum (CSF) has issued an annual Report on the State of Civil Society in the EU and Russia. Each year we study four EU countries and Russia, outline the main trends and challenges for civil society organisations (CSOs) there, solutions to those challenges and legal and political conditions.

For 2019, we have chosen Sweden, which has a long history of social democracy and joined the EU in 1995, the UK, an “old” member state, which is going through Brexit at the time of writing, and Estonia and Slovakia, two “new” member states which were in the former Soviet sphere of influence and joined the EU in 2004.
