Protecting and Expanding Civic Space: Discussion on Perspectives and Experiences
‘Civic Space’ is a term referring to the space for civil society to be able to freely exercise the freedom of expression, assembly, and association. Discussions on civic space have been coexisting in many thematic discussions on democracy, good governance, economic, and sustainable development forums. In C20 forums, the issue was always present in final reports of 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021; this represents how attention to the protection of civic space is no less important than any other cooperative development programs. In the 2022 C20, civic space issues are included in the Education, Digitalisation and Civic Space Working Group. PSHK was appointed and acted as Chair in the Sub-Working group with YAPPIKA-ActionAid and Penabulu as Co-Chairs.
We invite you to join the webinar on Protecting and Expanding Civic Space: Discussion on Perspectives and Experiences. This is a Webinar to launch and introduce the C20 Sub-Working Group on Civic Space
