NGOs – Angels of democracy or demons of revolution?

Kornelij Glas has reposted an article from Nezavisimaya, discussing the state of the NGO sector in a number of post-soviet countries, including Armenia, Georgia, Azerbiajan. The situation, as presented in the report, seems rather favorable for the Armenian NGOs, especially when compared with the Azerbaijani and Georgian NGO situation. Armenian NGOs are active in many spheres of public life, the legislation related to them is rather liberal, etc. One of the interesting issues mentioned is the existence of the so called “GONGO”s, that is government sponsored NGOs, or NGOs, which were created by government officials or people related to them. Another issue, according to the report is the fact, that most of the Human Rights related programs of the Armenian NGOs are funded from abroad, which has serious implications if such funding is stopped or scaled down.
