2015-2016 Annual Report

Protecting Civic Freedom

ICNL’s 2015-2016 Annual Report outlines our work over the past year to confront the challenges facing civic freedoms around the world. From Cambodia to Morocco, the report highlights stories where civil society was able to successfully counter the global trend of closing space. Read how civil society coalitions convinced the government to drop proposed ‘foreign agent’ legislation in Kyrgyzstan and how they pushed the Financial Action Task Force to reinterpret global counterterrorism policy affecting civil society. Get inspired by ICNL’s partners in Benin, who worked to develop a new draft Association Law, and in Afghanistan, where a new draft regulation for volunteerism was developed. Also check out the Research and Resources page to review ICNL’s wide selection of online resources – including our newly re-launched Civic Freedom Monitor.
