Invitation Claiming back civic space: Towards approaches fit for the 2020s?
Closing civil society space is a growing trend, impacting civic actors in countries throughout the world, with an alarming rise in restrictions placed on civil society’s ability to operate. The trend has encompassed a range of repressive measures by governments or society, from constraints on freedom of assembly to imposing limitations on NGOs funding or operations, from legal means to illegal violent measures.
