‘De Macht van de Tegenkracht’
As a start of a more intense effort of The Spindle (and Partos) on ‘civic space and the resilience of civil society’, Partos organised an online debate together with Vice Versa, Action Aid and Both Ends.
All across the globe, the space for civil society and activists is under pressure, while as a civil force they are crucial when it comes to making development inclusive and sustainable.
The online debate took place in September and October of 2016 on the website of Dutch magazine Vice Versa, called ‘De Macht van de Tegenkracht’ (in English: the Power of Counterbalance). What is civic space? Which restrictions are there in civic space (also in the West)? What are new strategies to cope with these restrictions or protect civic space? You can find all the articles (in Dutch) in the Vice Versa archive.
Vice Versa also published a magazine on Civic Power.
