ICNL Global Forum 2015, Stockholm


10.05.15 – 12.05.2015:  ICNL’s Global Forum 2015 (convened every 5 years) is the premier global event focussing on the legal space for civil society. This invitation-only event brings together over 200 of the world’s leading minds across civil society, government, multilateral institutions, and the donor community – all there to help shape the future of civic space.

This year’s Forum was marked by a sense of urgency unlike any other in recent times. In too many places, governments are becoming increasingly creative in their efforts to shrink civic space. In other countries, critical windows of opportunities exist for meaningful reform.
Lia van Broekhoven of Human Security Collective was on the panel: ‘In the Shadow of Counter-Terrorism: Debunking Government Restrictions on CSOs’. See here for more details.
