Civil society under threat
A group of German civil society organizations, NGOs and networks published a discussion paper about the growing restrictions that civil society organizations are currently facing all over the world. Starting with the analysis of the worldwide trend of repression against civil society, the paper’s signatories then sketch concrete recommendations for and expectations from the German Federal Government and ministries. Signatories include Oxfam Germany, Reporters without borders, medico international and Misereor. They will seek to start bilateral discussions with different government actors.
