    The State of Civil Society Report 2014: Reimagining Global Governance draws on contributions from more than 30 of the world’s leading experts on civil society as well as on inputs from our members, partners, supporters and others in the global CIVICUS alliance. The varied contributions highlight changing global political dynamics, an emerging disillusionment with global frameworks of governance and a fundamental lack of accountability within international decision-making.

    The report also contains the findings of a pilot project, based on research conducted with more than 450 Civil Society Organisations, which assesses how well intergovernmental organisations engage civil society.

    A complete list of contributors, donors, editors and production staff are available in the PDF of the report.
