  Civil Society Law Summer Seminar in Budapest
 
15/07/2007

Between 12-14 July 2007 ECNL organized a Civil Society Law Summer Seminar in Budapest, Hungary.

The Seminar provided an opportunity to 15 partners of the ECNL/ICNL network from the CEE and NIS region to expand their knowledge and expertise in the area of civil society law. Participants arrived from Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Moldova, Armenia, Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania and Serbia.

U.S. Ambassador April H. Foley and USAID representative Susan Kutor welcomed participants at the opening dinner reception.

The Seminar focused on themes including:

  • the freedom of association as protected by international law
  • the enabling framework and NGO sustainability
  • mechanisms for public financing of NGOs
  • legal framework for public benefit organizations
  • regulatory treatment of economic activities.

    Participants learned from their colleagues and engaged in discussions thereby making full use of the opportunities offered by this successful training. As a proof of the immediate networking impact of the seminar, participants created their own mailing list shortly after the event to share experiences in specific NGO-law related issues .

    Shrinking space for civil society – Addressing the implementation gap, CSI Side Event, 12 June
    Internationally guaranteed protections for fundamental rights are clearly not understood by some States and not translated into safeguards for civil society nationally. Civic Space Initiative, including ECNL, organized a side event to identify how States must address the “implementation gap” between international standards and domestic law and practice, in particular for marginalized groups.
