Letter from the Editor

In this issue, the International Journal of Not-for-Profit Law revisits an enduring topic of concern: restrictions on foreign funding of civil society. Last fall, we published an overview of the subject.1 Now, we feature expert reports from the field: Egypt, by Mohamed ElAgati; Ethiopia, by Debebe Hailegebriel; Russia, by Aleksej Bogoroditskii; Sri Lanka, by Rohan Edrisinha; and Venezuela, by Marcos Carrillo.

This issue also includes a summary of current nonprofit law in Vietnam, by Mark Sidel. In another article, Mahammad Guluzade and Natalia Bourjaily dissect a European Court of Human Rights case challenging Azerbaijan’s dissolution of a registered public union. Peter Elson argues that one cannot fully understand charity regulations in Canada and England without considering their history. And Georg von Schnurbein and Daniela Schönenberg examine changes in the governance of civil society organizations in Switzerland.

We thank USAID for its generous support of the articles on restrictions on foreign funding of civil society. We also thank our authors for their incisive and timely articles.
