Why do we need a European civil society strategy - conference for a thriving civic space


The Reclaim Our civil Space! project aims at addressing the trends of democratic backsliding and shrinking civil space observed for the past years particularly in Central and Southeastern Europe. The project implemented with 9 partners in 7 Central European countries.

This workshop aims at further brainstorming about the idea, the need and the potential content of a comprehensive EU civil society strategy proposed earlier as well as to discuss steps and possible joint actions towards its approval by EU institutions and to gather broader support among CSOs to this cause. In addition, we’d like to give representatives of participating Central European CSOs an overview of ongoing EU initiatives relevant to civil society and the related advocacy work carried out by European umbrella organisations.
