A Practical Guide for Civil Society: Civil Society Space and the UN Human Rights System
This guide highlights issues related to the work of civil society actors (CSAs). It begins with a working definition of the terms ‘civil society’ and ‘civil society space’. It then provides an overview of the conditions and environment needed for a free and independent civil society, including relevant international human rights standards for freedoms of expression, association and peaceful assembly, and the right to participate in public affairs.
