Shackled Freedoms: What Space for Civil Society in the EuroMed?


This report follows the seminar about “Combatting the shrinking of civil society space”, organized by EuroMed Rights, 22-24 April 2016, in Brussels. The meeting brought together about 20 organizations from North Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

This report aims to analytically present the experiences and testimonies gathered during this seminar. It is therefore more than an account, it is an inventory of obstacles and repression against civil society in the euro-Mediterranean region, and it synthetically presents relevant experiences and recommendations directly from the actors.
