Challenging the Closing Space for Civil Society: A Practical Starting Point for Funders
How can donors respond to the closing space for civil society? IHRFG, Ariadne, and the European Foundation Center are pleased to launch Challenging the Closing Space for Civil Society: A Practical Starting Point for Funders.
This report provides analyses, case studies, and practical actions for funders across sectors to support civil society and counter this trend.
The report lays out seven levers that funders can use to change the terms of the debate, from developing counter-narratives to building the long-term resilience of grantees. We encourage you to share this resource with funders, activists, and others in the civil society community.
Where is work already happening? We have also released a funder-only heat map showing the who, what, and where of responses to date. (Please do not share this resource beyond your circle of grantmaking peers.)
