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 55 countries and eight multilateral organizations. There are also three archived country reports. 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.

ICNL is grateful for the grant support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
