Mobilizing the power of people to overcome poverty and injustice is at the heart of Oxfam’s mission and vision. Oxfam works together with allies and partners around the world to protect and expand the space for all people, and especially for marginalized groups, to speak out, assemble and organize on issues that matter to them, without fear of repercussions. This tool is designed to help practitioners analyze different dimensions of civic space at local and national levels. It provides a monitoring framework to understand what is happening in civic space, to track trends and highlight priority areas that need addressing. This analysis can be used to inform decision making, strategy definition, programming and risk management on the issues related to civic space. Read more here.
