Crafting peace and building a safer world

Civic Space Guardian

Directorio legislativo

The project consists of creating a web tool to alert and provide information on proposed laws or policies likely to impact civic space in Latin America. This would lend a crucial, rich digital presence to our current newsletter on the same theme, circulated fortnightly via email, thus broadening the product's offer and beneficiaries substantially. Events since the pandemic have spotlighted the need for civil society to have the tools and time to mobilize against state curbs on NGOs and media. Our solution will feature an innovative "Bill Tracker" where users can keep tabs on proposed regulations and prepare or lobby accordingly. This could be scaled to other regions/globally. It can be of cross-sectoral benefit, as shown by our holding recent talks with OAS and WHO on offering related services.
