Adaptable work methods are key in ensuring civil society’s access to foreign funding in increasingly restrictive environments, according to a new report by Human Rights House Foundation (HRHF). More and more countries are adopting restrictive and stigmatising laws and practices that hinder foreign funding for civil society, especially human rights organisations and defenders. This report offers principles and recommendations for international donors to strengthen their support of human rights NGOs regarding their access to resources in such environments. These principles and recommendations aim to inspire donors to review their methods. The report also aims to empower human rights NGOs, providing a tool to strengthen partnership with international donors. The report is available here.
