Civic Freedom Monitor

ICNL’s Civic Freedom Monitor provides up-to-date information on legal issues affecting civil society and civic freedoms, including freedoms of association, expression, and peaceful assembly. We currently maintain reports on fifty-four countries and eight multilateral organizations. Each country report provides an overview of key legal issues relating to civic freedoms, with a focus on legal barriers to civil society activity. Each report on a multilateral organization provides an overview of the organization and the legal issues it deals with, affecting civic freedom and civic participation.

The Civic Freedom Digest uses the information contained in the Civic Freedom Monitor reports to shine a light on recent developments in the laws governing civic space within a specific thematic or geographic scope. Read the first issue on trends in the digital age here
