Special Webinar Series:Civil Society in South Africa: A Shrinking Space?

This seminar series seeks to disseminate findings from a Centre for Civil Society NRF funded research study. The study focused on how the ‘shrinking space’ of civil society has impacted on the functioning of social movements and NGOs in South Africa in terms of their framing strategies, their ability to mobilise and their inclination to link with the grass roots avoiding processes of ‘NGOization’. The series incorporates eight case studies of foremost social justice movements (civil society organisations) in South Africa and this seminar is focused on the Right2Know Campaign
