This report provides ample evidence of why positive elements such as the ex-ante conditionalities and the European Code of Conduct on Partnership (ECCP) should be maintained in the future EU budget and expanded to other funding programmes.
However, it also raises some valid concerns about how regulations have been implemented in practice, making the case for strengthening existing regulations through rigorous monitoring and more meaningful participation of civil society.
