Then EENA in Bolivia was undertaken between August 2013 and January 2014 by Fundación CONSTRUIR.
Some conclusions from the research were that although the Bolivian constitution guaranteed protection of civic rights, several laws were approved that have gradually limited these rights. Some of the laws include the draft law on access to information and to regulate non-governmental organisations. In practice, there exists a gap between constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms and the practice of exercising the rights to access to information, freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. There is also a lack of meaningful spaces for dialogue between CSOs and the government, while there is a need to work together in order to create an enabling environment for civil society.
