In der gesamten EU erbringen zivilgesellschaftliche Organisationen Dienstleistungen, engagieren sich in Gemeinschaften, sensibilisieren, setzen sich für andere ein und ziehen Behörden zur Verantwortung. Dennoch sind sie Bedrohungen, Angriffen, Mittelkürzungen und unverhältnismäßigen Beschränkungen ausgesetzt. Dies sind nur einige der Herausforderungen, mit denen zivilgesellschaftliche Menschenrechtsorganisationen in einigen Teilen der EU konfrontiert sind. Die Coronavirus-Pandemie hat das Umfeld für diese Organisationen zusätzlich verschlechtert, wie ein neuer Bericht der Agentur der Europäischen Union für Grundrechte (FRA) zeigt. Die FRA fordert die Politik auf, ein günstigeres Tätigkeitsumfeld für die Zivilgesellschaft zu schaffen und so dazu beizutragen, alle Menschenrechte für alle zu verwirklichen.
