Tracking Civic Space

Published: January 2019

The CIVICUS Monitor is a web platform that provides constantly-updated information and analysis on the space for civil society and citizen activism in every country of the world.

The Monitor features an interactive world map allowing users to see live updates from civil society around the world, track threats to civil society and learn about the ways in which the right to participate is being realized or challenged. Each country is placed in one of five broad bands – closed, repressed, obstructed, narrowed, open –based on their overall level of respect for civil society freedoms.
