Civic Freedom Monitor
ICNL's Civic Freedom Monitor provides up-to-date information on legal issues affecting civil society and civic freedoms – the freedoms of association, expression and peaceful assembly. At this time, ICNL presents reports on 50 countries and 8 multilateral organizations. Each country report provides an overview of key legal issues relating to civic freedom, with a focus on legal barriers to civil society activity and civic freedom. Each multilateral organization report provides an overview of the organization, with a focus on legal issues affecting civic freedom and civic participation.
Please select a country or multilateral organization from the menu below.
This Project is made possible through by the generous support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
ICNL expresses gratitude to the Civic Freedom Monitor Network, which is comprised of individuals and organizations located in more than 40 countries. The Network is dedicated to monitoring legal developments affecting civil society at the country and regional level.
