My (Barbara)’s fascination and interest for the issue of civic space started in Indonesia. Local organisations struggled with the introduction of a vaguely framed law for Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), warning them not to work on issues going against ‘’Indonesian’’ values. A few years later I found myself supporting initiatives in more than 15 countries spread across the globe, struggling with shifting and shrinking civic space.

The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has forced EADI and ISS to postpone their joint conference planned for late June/early July (in The Hague) to next year (5-8 July 2021).

Recent examples are the Brexit process, or the rise of populist movements in Europe.
