Everywhere at the Human Rights Council (HRC) the catchphrase on everyone’s tongue is “shrinking spaces for civil society”. But what does it mean, really? How are activists grappling with this “shrinking space” in their work?

This report presents the findings of a joint study undertaken by InterAction and the World Bank to assess the level and quality of their operational and policy relations. The motivation for the study was sparked by a post-9/11 invitation from James Wolfensohn, President of the World Bank, to senior executives of InterAction member agencies to suggest advice and proposals for dialogue and cooperation on issues related to poverty reduction.
