Issues of shrinking civil society space explored in new EFC and FICS paper

The European Foundation Centre (EFC) and the Funders’ Initiative for Civil Society (FICS) have published a paper on the trend of closing civil society space and its impact on funders and frontline organisations, along with potential solutions for dealing with the issue.


The paper, Why Shrinking Civil Society Space Matters in International Development and Humanitarian Action, is the result of a one-year joint EFC/FICS collaboration involving funders and non-profit organisations. Participants also contributed through roundtables and interviews to develop possible responses for reversing the trend.
