Introduction

This is a public event, organised by Women Peacemakers Program, Duke International Human Rights Clinic, Human Security Collective, Transnational Institute, Charity & Security Networkin cooperation with the Knowledge Platform Security and Rule of Law. To register click here.

To prevent conflict and sustain peace and democracy, civil society must be able to freely and independently organize itself and perform its duties. However, civil society activism is facing a global pushback.

This interactive event will showcase new research on the topic of shrinking space for civil society, and more specifically on the negative impact of counter-terrorism financing regulations on civil society space. It will highlight how these measures have a disproportionate effect on vulnerable segments within civil society, such as women’s rights organizations.
