Donor Responses and Tools for Responding to Shrinking Space for Civil Society: a Desk Study
MetadataShow full item record
This report summarises and analyses donor responses to the closure of civic space around the world. It is part of a wider effort within the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) to enable joint learning to support SDC offices in dealing with the growing challenges they encounter in restrained or shrinking spaces for civil society. Through knowledge-sharing and exchange, it proposes to improve the quality of SDC operations by articulating existing internal discussions, promoting reflective practices on the shrinking space for civil society, and advising SDC on how to respond to this trend.
