    The Shrinking Space of Civil Society: a Report on Trends, Responses, and the Role of Donors

    Opusculum 128 | 01.04.2010 | Civil society is one of the main arenas of the democratization. However, in recent years the political space of civil society has become narrower and does not contribute to effective operation of civil society organisations (CSOs). Due to repression by governments, civil society organisations are encountering a series of challenges, which may extend to closing down the organisations.

    The Space for Civil Society and Civic Activism in Armenia

    Observatorium 27 | 01.10.2018 | Despite the use of the whole ‘’artillery’’ of repression by authorities against the hundreds of thousands of protesters in the streets, the armenian activists resisted and achieved their goals. This served as proof that an intelligent mix of civil society resistance, dialogue, institutional development, capacity building, and proper use of media resources can lead to reclaiming of the shrunk political space.
