Italian civil society: from target to antidote to the crisis of democracy?
The research explores the responsiveness of Italian civil society to what is internationally referred to as the "shrinking” or “narrowing” of spaces for civic action. In particular, it questions the capacity of civil society to participate in the political process, exploring possible strengths and weaknesses that affect or may affect the possibility of civic action.
This research is part of the Winning the Narrative project funded by Civitates - A philanthropic initiative for democracy and solidarity in Europe and carried out in collaboration with CILD.
