Experts discuss support for civic space

The Agency will host an expert meeting on supporting an enabling and protective space for civil society organisations in EU Member States in Vienna from 2 to 3 May.

The meeting will bring together around 35 experts from NGOs, donors and funders, and international and EU institutions. The Agency will present preliminary findings from its recent data collection across the 28 EU Member States, and seek further information from participants about key issues. Existing responses in support of civil society space will be mapped. The Agency will use the meeting findings to plan its next steps.
