According to the findings of CIVICUS’s latest report People Power under Attack: Findings from the CIVICUS Monitor, only 3% of people live in countries where space for civic activism – or civic space – is truly open. Based upon monitoring of 195 countries, CIVICUS finds that people in 106 countries face serious threats when organizing, speaking out and taking peaceful action to improve their societies, albeit rights’ guarantees by most national constitutions and international law. Macedonia and Turkey are two out of the five countries listed at the CIVICUS Watch List, as countries of immediate concern about a serious and rapid decline in respect for civic space, which are being closely followed on developments in the coming weeks.
