Shifting Sands: Experiences and Responses to Shrinking Civic Space from the Transparency, Accountability, and Participation Field
Transparency and Accountability Initiative (TAI) is a collaborative of six funders working to expand the impact and scale of global transparency, accountability, and participation (TAP) initiatives. In recent years, a growing body of evidence demonstrates global shifts in legal and political contexts that constrain what civil society actors can say, where and how they operate, and whether and how they can access funding. Shrinking civic space is affecting the ability of civil society groups to operate freely and independently. This brief provides data on how civil society groups pursuing TAP outcomes are experiencing and responding to shrinking civic space. The research aims to help frame funder-grantee organization conversations around shrinking civic space, and to inform funder support that targets needs among their TAP grantee ecosystems.
