CIVICUS at the United Nations

From the local to global level, CIVICUS works to advance the rights and interests of civil society. At the United Nations, CIVICUS seeks to provide a bridge between those who have a stake in the outcomes of intergovernmental policy-making, and the international forums where decisions are made in their name. To this end, CIVICUS works with a diversity of civil society organisations and citizens on the following areas:

  • policy and advocacy
  • stakeholder engagement and consultation 
  • capacity building
  • public mobilisations 
  • media and communications

CIVICUS has representation at UN Headquarters in New York (Home of the UN General Assembly and governance body for the Sustainable Development Goals) and the United Nations office in Geneva (Home of the UN Human Rights Council).
