Earlier this year, The Broker started a new project with Partos: New Waves of Civic Power. For the past few months we have been investigating innovative forms of civic action around the globe. The final results of this investigation will be presented during a launch of the publication on Monday 26 June.

Around the world people are responding to forces that threaten their rights and freedoms in creative and inspiring ways. Every year CIVICUS publishes the ‘State of Civil Society’ report, which maps the many ways and places in which our civic space – the arena in which civil society operates – is under attack. While such monitoring is vital, the New Waves of Civic Power project aims to draw attention to the vibrancy and innovativeness of civil society, showcasing the various ways in which organizations and activists are overcoming obstacles that limit their civil rights and freedoms.

Reflecting the energy of civil society we have encountered over the course of this project, the launch on 26 June promises to be an eventful afternoon, including a presentation, debate and discussions on the importance and resilience of civil society. The event will be hosted by Partos at Dudok in The Hague. After the official programme ends at approximately 5.30 pm, there will be plenty of opportunities to discuss matters further over a drink.

Please note, that the event will be conducted in Dutch, with the exception of a keynote speech by an international guest; however, the publication itself will be in English.
