The European Foundation Centre, Ariadne and the International Human Rights Funders Group are pleased to launch ‘Challenging the Closing Space for Civil Society: A Practical Starting Point for Funders‘.

This new report shares outcomes from the June 2015 Donor Workshop on Closing Space and provides analyses, case studies, and practical actions for funders to support civil society and counter this trend.

It also 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!
