Assessing Civic Space in Europe
An online survey aimed at assessing Civic Space in Europe has been launched by Civil Society Europe and Civicus – the World Alliance for Citizen’s Participation.
ALDA, member of both platforms, supports the initiative and calls all its members and partners to participate and widely disseminate the survey. The survey includes 30 questions and should not take more than 15 minutes.
All associations and leading activists in the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland, and the candidate countries to the EU Accession: Albania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey are invited to take part.
The purpose of the survey is to map out key trends on civic space in Europe. Given recent developments, the survey will allow to assess how operating conditions for civil society have changed in Europe over the past 12 months, what are the emerging trends and challenges that civil society organisations have to face, as well as the possibility to develop common responses. The survey deals with civic space, civil society collaboration and support, obstacles and challenges facing civil society at national level and broader political trends in Europe.
