The Value of Civil Society


Join us on March 16 at 13:00-14:30 CET as the OGP Democratic Freedoms Learning Network (DFLN) will host a webinar to explore the value of civil society and how expanding civic space can help make countries more resilient and successful. The webinar will look at the vital role that civil society plays in responding to crises, combating corruption, improving governance, tackling complex challenges, and achieving better outcomes for people.

The conversation will draw on evidence from OGP’s Skeptic’s Guide to Open Government and the OECD’s Global Report on Civic Space, as well as experience from government and civil society leaders across the partnership.
