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.
You can register and attend the event via Zoom.
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.
