Capacity Building; Defending Civic Space Reports

Rethinking civic space in an age of intersectional crises

This new paper from the Funders’ Initiative for Civil Society (FICS) shares ‘futures thinking’ about climate, technological change, and preliminary thoughts on the Covid-19 crisis. The 2020s will be a decade of transition – how will these changes impact civic space and how should funders respond?

This is the first of a series of recommendations FICS will publish for funders on how to disrupt and reform the drivers of closing civic space.  Additionally, authors Ben Hayes and Poonam Joshi summarise the key findings of the FICS 2019 strategic review, which sought to elaborate a strategic framework through which independent funders could respond more effectively to the phenomenon of closing civic space through collaborative and targeted interventions.
