Ariadne, The International Human Rights Funders Group and The European Foundation Centre are pleased to publish a new guide for funders: “Challenging the Closing Space for Civil Society – A Practical Action Guide for Funders,” which does what it says on the tin.
This is the result of collaborative input from participants in all three networks and is based on research, direct experience and practical suggestions from over 80 contributors. Many of them attended a 2 day workshop organised by the three networks in Berlin last year.
The report is a great place for funders to start – it will help them understand this trend and see how they can tackle it in their own work and with their grantees.
The guide is a public one, please feel free to share it as widely as possible, or post this on your own website.
