Accountability, Justice and Space for Civil Society

The space available for civil society organisations working to promote, defend and protect human rights in the Euro-Mediterranean region is steadily declining, as is access to justice and accountability for citizens in the region. In Egypt, Algeria, Syria, Turkey, Palestine and Israel, civil society activists are repressed. Human rights organisations are systematically harassed and targeted by the governments. Furthermore, international support to human rights defenders and independent civil society organisations is increasingly criminalised via anti-terrorism laws and administrative obstacles.
