Webinar – How to Use EU Law to Protect Civic Space
The European Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ECNL) and the joint EFC-DAFNE initiative, Philanthropy Advocacy will host a webinar looking at “How to Use EU Law to Protect Civic Space” on 17 November 15:00-17:00 CET.
What can civil society organisations including philanthropic organisations (CSOs) do when their fundamental rights to associate, operate, express views, seek and provide information, receive funding or fund and campaign get 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?
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.
