International program

We work to help civil society be understood as a public good that is relevant everywhere, and beneficial to all governments searching for solutions to complex problems.

In each country where we work, we support civil society’s efforts to establish broad alliances, engage diverse communities, and develop innovative ways to inform, engage, and mobilize people. We support research, advocacy, and networking aimed at protecting and expanding civic space, and reversing global trends toward destabilization and constraint.

We also work to ensure better and more effective protections and protocols to address problems like the harassment, intimidation, and violence too often aimed at activists, journalists, and defenders.
