CIVICUS World Assembly draws lessons from Arab Spring for CSOs

This year’s CIVICUS World Assembly, held in Montreal in September, boasted a strong Latin American presence, with roughly 10 per cent of the 900 delegates coming from the region, and Anabel Cruz, the only former CIVICUS president from Latin America, among the speakers.

Sessions included one on the Rendir Cuentas (accountability) initiative informed by CIVICUS’ work on legitimacy, transparency and accountability in which six countries from the region (Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Perú, the Dominican Republic and Uruguay) took part, and one on the cohesion and coordination of international aid efforts in Latin American countries and their implications for the sustainability of the CSO sector in those countries.
