Beginning in 2011, INTRAC and five other civil society organisations from India, Tanzania, South Africa, Uruguay and the Netherlands came together for one of the most ambitious research projects any of us had ever undertaken. Looking at 23 case studies in 16 countries around the world, we examined the major trends shaping and changing civil society organisations and their environment. This two-page document summarises the most important findings in five points and outlines nine implications for civil society. It also links to the project’s major outputs, including more detailed synthesis documents and all case studies.
