Civil society and the coronavirus

The coronavirus crisis has affected civil society around the world. Quarantine measures limited people and became an obstacle to the organization of actions and meetings. Some organizations had to completely change their work plan. Governments have also been given the opportunity to expand state oversight at a time when civil society has a much lower capacity to resist. At the same time, the pandemic catalyzes new forms of civic activism. What are these forms, and what can the international community do to strengthen local initiatives, read in the material of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Many think tanks focus on studying the virus and its impact on economic, political, social and cultural processes in certain countries and in the world as a whole.

We have launched a new section – COVID-19: Research, where we monitor the leading research, analysis and statistics on Covid-19 in think tanks. We publish these materials so that our readers have access to quality analytics on those issues.
