International conference

Time to react – Creating an enabling environment for civil society

The Hirschfeld-Eddy-Foundation and the German Federal Foreign Office extend the invitation for an international conference that is focusing on the phenomenon of “closing space” for civil society organisations. Organisations that work for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, Trans* and Inter* (LSBTI) are especially affected by this phenomenon. Within the framework of this conference, the participants are going to reflect on the significance of this general development for the LSBTI Organisations. The conference is addressed to representatives of foreign policy, of development cooperation, to foundations and to non-governmental organisations. Registration is possible until 22 May.
