ICSW 2016 PROGRAMME

ACTIVE CITIZENS, ACCOUNTABLE ACTIONS

In demanding rights, civil society also has a responsibility to promote positive social and political change, while encouraging other actors to do the same. ICSW 2016 will feature more than 30 events organised by leading civil society organisations and will cover 4 crucial themes: peace, inclusion, enabling environment and participation.

The following programme tracks explore the different barriers and opportunities to achieving the aspiration of active citizenship underpinned by accountable actions. Click on each box to know more about partner events for that track.
