LIVE STREAM FROM BERLIN - Squeezed: Space for civil society

On the evening of 27 October 2016, we would like to analyze the political situation with international guests from civil society. We want to know the specifics of how the work of civil society organizations is restricted, and the impact this has on their work. Furthermore, we would like to focus on counter strategies and get into a political dialogue about how politics can react to the repressive measures affecting civil society all over the world.
