In this episode, we are discussing the phenomenon of shrinking civil society space for youth organisations and youth movements - what forms it takes, how it affects young people and what can be done about it.
Youth organisations experience a shrinking space for civil society in a variety of ways and on many different levels. Space can start to shrink when governments see civil society as a threat. As a result, they employ tactics to discredit and weaken them, thereby shrinking the space in which they can work.
Hosts: Dariusz Grzemny and Lana Pasic.
