How to Face the Challenges of Shrinking Public Space?

Sponsored Presentations


Civil society organisations in Latin America face various challenges, such as limited access to funding, political instability, corruption, social inequality, and restricted freedom of expression. These challenges can impede their ability to operate effectively and hinder their societal impact. The presentation, organized by Civic House, aims to ask questions and provide some potential answers to the relationship between a process of a shrinking civil space and government interest in adopting comprehensive data protection laws.

Speakers: Gastón Wright, Cecilia Galvan, Maricel Lonati and Marco Di Natale
