ICNL deeply values the knowledge and expertise of our local partners. Over the years, we have been privileged to collaborate with civil society leaders, community-based activists, government officials, lawyers, academics, and others at the country and regional levels. We support many locally driven initiatives in helping to develop draft laws, produce research publications, and design instructional programs that respond to local issues. We also provide technical assistance to research fellows, sub-grantees, and university partners across the region. With our support, local experts can assess laws, propose reforms, produce plain-language guidebooks, and develop other responses to high-priority issues facing civil society in their countries.
