The French Institute for Civil Society Organisations is honoured to welcome Oleksandra Matviichuk, President of the Center for Civil Liberties of Ukraine, Nobel Peace Prize 2022, as a keynote speaker for this webinar.
In 2022, the French Institute for Civil Society Organisations launched, in partnership with the Maecenata Foundation, the Institute for Social Research, and the Mouvement associatif, a working group on Civil Society Organisations in Europe. This working group brought together 40 researchers and practitioners with mixed expertise from 16 European countries to shed light on CSOs in Europe, on their contribution to society and democracy, and on their needs.
This working group was tasked with detecting European CSOs knowledge needs, drawing a state of the art, and issuing recommendations for a European research agenda on CSOs.
We were thrilled to present the results of this working group and to think about advancing knwoledge on CSOs during a webinar that we held on the 14th of April!
