The EENA in South Africa was undertaken between 20 January 2015 and 31 July 2015 by the Human Rights Institute of South Africa (HURISA). 

HURISA found that freedom of expression and peaceful assembly are protected in the constitution but there are still many challenges and obstacles faced by individuals and Non-Profit Organisations that seek to exercise these rights. The most significant challenge they identified was access to resources.  Minimal legal requirements governing the operation of civil society organisations (CSOs), minimal cooperation and collaboration between CSOs and the absence of a centralised coordinating structure for CSOs in the country were also some of the challenges identified in the research. 

The full EENA South Africa report is available in English
