As the planet faces the Covid-19 emergency, we are all asked to act responsibly as individuals and as a community. We have to change our life to protect ourselves and others. Civil society is under great pressure but it is also playing a key role to provide a response.

The Civic Space Watch will give visibility to civil society’s actions and demands in the present crisis. 

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.
