Short description:
CIVICUS is an international alliance of members and partners which constitute an influential network of organisations at the local, national, regional and international levels, and span the full spectrum of civil society.
CIVICUS has worked for over a decade to strengthen citizen action and civil society throughout the world, especially in areas where participatory democracy and citizens' freedom of association are threatened.
CIVICUS has a vision of a global community of active, engaged citizens committed to the creation of a more just and equitable world. This is premised on the belief that the health of societies exists in direct proportion to the degree of balance between the state, the private sector and civil society.
