At this time, ICNL presents reports on 54 countries and 8 multilateral organizations. Each country report provides an overview of key legal issues relating to civic freedom, with a focus on legal barriers to civil society activity.  Each multilateral organization report provides an overview of the organization, with a focus on legal issues affecting civic freedom and civic participation.
