Handbook on Registering a Civil Society Organization

The Handbook on Registering a Civil Society Organization provides comparative information on incorporation and operation in 10 selected countries in Europe and Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region: Belgium, Czechia, Estonia, Georgia, Germany, Ireland, Lebanon, Sweden, Tunisia and Turkey. Each country note is broken down into 10 thematic subsections that contains specific, detailed requirements for the existing legal forms in each country.

The Handbook is available in English and Arabic. It was developed in collaboration with our partnering law firms, DLA Piper and Dentons. It will be part of an upcoming publication “Guide to Going Global” which will contain a review of additional countries.

Disclaimer: The purpose of the Handbook is not to give legal advice, but to provide interested persons with access to informative materials. Recognizing that CSO laws change and interpretations of local law vary, ECNL is not liable for any differences or inaccuracies.
