Crackdown on Civil Society

Crackdown on Civil Society

CRACKDOWN ON CIVIL SOCIETY Civil society organisations defending human rights are increasingly targeted by repressive governments across the world. This movie will present some unbelievable stories about oppression, resistance and survival, told by human rights defenders who dedicated their lives to help the most marginalised groups of societies in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. A good example for the repression of civil society in Hungary is how harm reduction organisations were treated after the change of government in Hungary in…

Manhattan Institute’s Civil Society Awards

Manhattan Institute’s Civil Society Awards

Sal Khan. Reid Porter. Brandon Chrostowski. As one looks back over the more than a decade of these awards, you see some of the most pressing social problems in America being addressed by private individuals with predominantly private financial support. We at the Manhattan Institute believe there are limits to what can be done well by government. That a vibrant, innovative civil society needs to be there to address emergent social problems and that’s what we’re recognizing and we think…

Have you ever done social science research (or in any other field for that matter) and realized that all of the sources are American or funded by the Americans? If you pay attention to the sources and time periods, this is not difficult to realize because it is right in front of your face?

Citizen Rebel Defines the Ideology of Food – Dogmatic Poverty Feeding

Citizen Rebel Defines the Ideology of Food. This rant just in from a disgruntled aid worker. I ran into a white paper written by a French aid worker in West Africa. It was written for the World Food Program (WFP) and European Community Humanitarian Office (ECHO). It was the INGOs report for these two donors.
