Civic Freedom Monitor

ICNL’s Civic Freedom Monitor provides up-to-date information on legal issues affecting civil society and civic freedoms, including the freedoms of association, expression, and peaceful assembly. We currently maintain more than 50 country notes from around the world. Each note provides an overview of key legal issues relating to civil society and civic freedoms. Specifically, the “Legal Analysis” section includes details on civil society organizational forms, public benefit status, and various categories of legal barriers affecting the formation of civil society organizations, their operations and access to resources, the freedom of expression, and the freedom of assembly. The Civic Freedom Monitor is made possible through a network of civil society experts and organizations in countries included in the Monitor.
