NGO Law Monitor
ICNL's NGO Law Monitor provides up-to-date information on legal issues affecting not-for-profit, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) around the world. At this time, ICNL presents reports on 41 countries and 8 multilateral organizations. Each country report provides an overview of key issues relating to the freedom of association and the NGO legal framework, with a focus on legal barriers affecting civil society. Each regional organization report provides an overview of the organization, focusing on its engagement on NGO legal issues.

ICNL expresses gratitude to the NGO Law Monitoring Network, which is comprised of individuals and organizations located in more than 30 countries. The Network is dedicated to monitoring legal developments affecting civil society at the country and regional level.
