Webinar on EADI-ISS – Conference harvest panel 122, Time: 10:00-11:30

Coordinators: Kees Biekart, Tiina Kontinen, Marianne Millstein

A vibrant civil society enhances solidarity, social justice, and peace. However, opportunities to act for social change within civil societies are limited in many ways.
