State of Civil Society 2011

Published on


This is the first incarnation of CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation’s report on the state of civil society. We envisage that the report will serve as a space for diverse civil society groupings to reflect on their internal challenges and the external environment for their operations, to celebrate their dynamism and strengths, and to formulate collective strategies to achieve greater impact. Through the creation of a corresponding online platform, we hope this report will evolve into a living conversation through which civil society actors can explore key issues and use their evolving understandings to shape their work in real time. If this report on the state of civil society today is able to become a highly participatory forum that is useful to civil society champions everywhere, then we believe that it can become a definitive regular snapshot by civil society on civil society.
