Efforts are made for members or partners to feature centrally in external discussions, and CIVICUS supports civil society representatives to speak for themselves in high-level discussions such as at the UN Human Rights Council. Interviews are conducted with local civil society leaders to amplify their voices. Illustrative examples of some of these efforts from the reporting period are provided.
CIVICUS also works to strengthen the advocacy capacities of its partners and members through its Enabling Environment National Assessment Initiative.
Further, the report states that CIVICUS generally receives positive feedback on its research and advocacy work. The wide variety of institutions using the CIVICUS Monitor are noted.
