Join our webinar on November 17th : How to use EU law to protect civic space

22 October 2020

The European Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ECNL) and Philanthropy Advocacy (a joint Dafne & EFC initiative) will host a webinar looking at “How to Use EU Law to Protect Civic Space” on 17 November at 15:00-17:00 CET.

What can civil society organisations (CSOs), including philanthropic organisations, do when their fundamental rights (to associate, operate, express views, seek and provide information, give and receive funds, and campaign) are restricted by a national policy measure? When and how can EU law offer support to defend the space? What are the legal avenues available for litigation based on EU law at national and EU level?

Earlier this year, ECNL and Philanthropy Advocacy published a handbook on the topic, and are now hosting an online workshop to learn and discuss how to use EU law to defend rights and civic space in the EU.
