Civic Space Watch

Monitoring and sharing resources on Civic Space in Europe

What is Civic Space?

 We endorse CIVICUS' understanding of civic space: "a set of universally-accepted rules, which allow people to organise, participate and communicate with each other freely and without hindrance, and in doing so, influence the political and social structures around them."

Civic Space is a concept central to any open and democratic society and governing bodies have the duty to protect it.

One civic space - three pillars

"The right to join a formal or informal group
to take collective action
"

"The right to gather publicly or privately and collectively  pursue and defend common interests"

"The right to access information, critically evaluate [it] and speak out"

The European Civic Space Watch is a collaborative,
knowledge-sharing online tool contributing to better
observing the state of civic space across Europe
by gathering together alerts from civil society, existing
analyses and institutional resources.
