How to protect civic space in the EU

FRA held a webinar with its civil society network, the Fundamental Rights Platform to present its ‘Protecting civic space in the EU’ report.

Close to 70 participants discussed key findings and possible ways forward.

FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty opened the meeting, followed by an interview with the FRA report author. Three civil society speakers from European Civic Forum, European Center for Not-for-Profit-Law (ECNL) and the Hungarian Helsinki Committee shared their insights and suggestions.

Follow-up conversations were agreed to dive deeper into some of the topics raised. The EEA and Norway Grants also presented their new civil society campaign at the webinar.

The webinar took place on 28 September.
