Online Discussion: Resiliency in Times of COVID: CSO Responses to the Uncertainty across Continents
PartnersGlobal and Partners Serbia cordially invite you to attend an online event on civil society resiliency and civic space in the global pandemic era. The event is organized within the Enabling and Protecting Civic Space (EPCS) INSPIRES project and will provide participants with the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences with civil society experts from the United States, Balkans, East Africa, West Africa, and Latin America. The event presents a unique opportunity to reflect on global challenges and obstacles to civic space by learning and discussing about specifics in some of the regions with fragile democracies, and share best practices to better respond, adapt and overcome such civic space shifts.
The event will consist of an expert panel and group discussion around critical issues affecting global civil society actors, including:
- Whether and how the global pandemic has affected the work and resiliency of civil society in general?
- What have been the global issues that civil society has faced throughout the pandemic?
- Will the crisis make the sector more resilient?
- What have been the local specifics and examples of shrinking of civic space and how has civil society responded?
