Description: The roundtable aims to provide participants with up-to-date information on legislation affecting CSOs around the world and discuss response strategies for international NGOs.  The International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL) is a leading source of information on civic space laws and works with local partners in over 100 countries to advocate for a more enabling legal environment for civil society.  ICNL will share its latest data on restrictions affecting CSO's operating environment from around the world; explore resources that colleagues can turn to in developing their response strategies; and show examples of country, regional and international initiatives that are effectively addressing civic space challenges.
