BCSDN invites contributions from its members and partners in the form of articles, case studies, institutional reflections and creative pieces for the Balkan Civic Practices edition on Promoting Civic Space titled “Global Challenges – Local Responses”, to be published in April 2018. In the first phase of the call, contributors should submit abstracts (of max. 150 words) until 5 March 2018. Upon approval of the abstracts, full contributions should be sent until 20 March 2018. Selected contributors will be awarded a fee of USD 250.
This edition aims to reflect on the challenges in the environment for civil society development in the Western Balkan and Turkey, focusing on local responses in the fight against the eventual closing of civic space. It aims to bring together professionals, academics and activists from the network, to debate what can be done to promote civic space in the WBT countries.
More details about the format of the contributions and the selection process is available here.
The execution of this activity is supported by the Balkan Trust for Democracy, as part of the project “Reaffirming value of civil society”, implemented by BCSDN.
