2016-2017 Annual Report

Building Alliances, Strengthening Freedoms

Our 2016-2017 Annual Report focuses on our work with colleagues in 106 countries to improve the enabling environment for civil society, philanthropy, and public participation. Our efforts extended to countries as diverse as Uganda, Cambodia, Pakistan, Honduras, and the United States. At the regional level, we had the honor of working with the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights, which launched progressive Guidelines on freedom of association and assembly. At the global level, we engaged with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, UN Special Rapporteurs, and the Financial Action Task Force. The past year also saw the launch of our US Protest Law Tracker and Philanthropy Law Reports.
