In the report Making Civic Space Resilient, Cordaid and Hivos examine how people around the world deal with oppression and how they restore human dignity after it has been violated. The report aims to show people from different parts of civil society what can be done to increase their space to operate.
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, Cordaid and Hivos consulted their partners to take stock of the different ways the pandemic – and government measures to fight it – have affected civil society organizations (CSOs). In particular, the room they have to campaign for a more fair distribution of power, income and influence. The original report has been updated to include their experiences.
