Examining the state of civic space in the EU

This year’s Civil Society Dialogue 2018 in Vienna from 21 to 22 November will explore the current status many civil society organisations find themselves in today’s European Union.

The Agency will present its findings on the challenges facing civil society organisations in the EU, and how it cooperates with civil society. It will speak on a panel on ‘All for rights and rights for all: the state of civic space and fundamental rights in today’s European Union’.

The event is being organised by the Austrian Interest Group of Public Benefit Organisations (IGO) together with the European Civic Forum. This carries forward the legacy of civil society forums taking place in countries holding the EU Presidencies over the last ten years.
