New findings from the Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society Studies

Did you know …

The new Johns Hopkins Global Civil Society Index (GCSI) reveals important variations in scores by country cluster. The GCSI measures civil society capacity, sustainability and impact. The cluster with the highest average score is the Nordic cluster, followed closely by the Anglo-Saxon cluster. The ‘welfare partnership’ countries rank third, largely because of limited scores on the index’s sustainability measure in several countries.

Nordic Finland, Norway, Sweden
Anglo-Saxon UK, US, Australia
Welfare partnership Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain
Africa Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda
Asian industrialized Japan, South Korea
Latin America Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Peru
Central/Eastern Europe Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia
