How Parliaments Can Protect Civic Space?
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, countries across the world have introduced severe restrictions to civic space. Some governments have used the pandemic as an excuse to pass long-planned reforms to crack down on civic freedoms. These recent developments are a concern to citizens worldwide. What can parliaments around the world do to contain this trend?
On Tuesday, 2 March at 1.00pm UK time, WFD is hosting a discussion about crackdowns on civic space during the pandemic, and how parliaments can contain this trend.
The event is part of WFD's participation and openness week, which runs from 1 to 5 March and will celebrate the power and potential of citizen involvement in decision-making and systems of government. Find out more on WFD's website.
