Lusine, CSI project coordinator in Armenia, talks about the new cross-border initiative being conducted by Counterpart International Armenia and TUSEV within the framework of the Civil Society Index. Supported by the Black Sea Trust and USAID, the initiative brings together civil society in Armenia and Turkey.

Last week, representatives from Armenia visited TUSEV offices in Istanbul and met with key civil society organisations, as well as identifying the strengths, weaknesses, outcomes and findings of CSI implementation in the two countries.
