Webinar: Healthy Civic Space in a Global Health Crisis: What role for the business sector?
Bennett Freeman, Author, 'Shared Space Under Pressure: Business Support for Civic Freedoms and Human Rights Defenders'
Idayat Hassan, Director, Centre for Democracy and Development
Christopher Sabatini, Senior Research Fellow for Latin America, US and the Americas Programme, Chatham House

Chair: Champa Patel, Director, Asia-Pacific Programme, Chatham House

This webinar will explore the impact of COVID-19 on civil society actors as well as the potential role of the private sector and other actors in supporting civic space. This will include ways in which businesses are collaborating with civil society organizations – including community groups - as well as providing support, financial and otherwise, for their efforts. The panel will draw on examples from developments in the Americas, Africa and the Asia-Pacific to discuss the potential opportunities but also the challenges that need to overcome. The event will bring together a diverse group of participants, including civil society, private sector, academia, government and international institutions.

This webinar will be recorded and will made available on the Chatham House website shortly after the event. If you require any additional information please contact Jacqueline Rowe (internationallaw@chathamhouse.org) in the International Law Programme.
