OECD Observatory of Civic Space

  1. 1. CIVIC SPACE Inclusive growth and sustainable development can only be achieved when governments design and implement policies and services in collaboration with all relevant stakeholders. The possibilities for citizens to be informed, organize and express their needs are crucial for their meaningful engagement in these processes. The civic space in which these activities take place therefore needs to be promoted and protected through policies, laws and initiatives that increase the dialogue between governments and their constituencies, in particular with the most vulnerable among them, in order to build sustainable and inclusive societies. However, the civic space has been undermined and must be imperatively protected for the citizens to exercise their freedom. At the same time, the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Democracy Index 2018 shows that while civic space is under attack, political participation - such as protest, voter turnout and women’s political participation - is improving. In fact, it is the only category in the 2018 index that is showing positive results, highlighting that citizens are increasingly interested in participating, and that governments are called upon to meet this demand. CONCEPT NOTE Within this context, the OECD Observatory of Civic Space will support countries to promote and protect the civic space by collecting data on the most effective policy, legal, institutional and implementation frameworks; by acting as a platform of knowledge-sharing and dissemination of good practices between government and civil society practitioners; and by fostering the development of international standards and encouraging governments to align their policies to them. OECD OFOBSERVATORY OECD Observatory of Civic Space Background Activities bit.ly/2Cd7TLA INTERNATIONAL SURVEY OF CIVIC SPACE The aim of the survey would be to take stock of governments’ role in creating an enabling environment for citizens and civil society to play an active role in policymaking and in service design and delivery and will enable the collection of good practices in this area. 1
  2. 2. INTERNATIONAL REPORT ON CIVIC SPACE Based on the results of the Survey, and the collection of good practices, an International Report will be published with key trends and recommendations on how to effectively promote and protect civic space and enhance civic engagement around the world. CIVIC SPACE COUNTRY SCANS Each country participating in the international survey would have the opportunity to undergo a Civic Space Scan to deepen the assessment of their civic space legal, institutional, policy and implementation frameworks. INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CIVIC SPACE A regular conference will take stock of international trends and serve as a sharing platform between the CSOs and government representatives. NATIONAL & REGIONAL THEMATIC ROUNDTABLES A series of roundtables will be organized, bringing together civil society, government, private sector, and academia to discuss the findings of the Survey. CIVIC SPACE PORTAL The reports and other outputs from the project will be made available on an OECD portal to support their dissemination, create an international community of practitioners, and allow for regular exchanges. ADVISORY GROUP Composed of representatives from the OECD Secretariat, country delegates of the OECD Working Party on Open Government, and strategic partners from civil society, private sector, and academia, it will provide strategic advice on the activities of the Observatory.
