The State of the NGO Sector in Russia today: Perspectives from Moscow and the Regions
This event cosponsored by the Jackson Foundation.
The Russian non-governmental sector has come under increased scrutiny since the passage of the 2012 law calling on certain NGOs engaged in political activity to register as foreign agents. While this legislation clearly has hindered NGO development, most Russian non-profits are engaged in more traditional activities and have not been affected by this law. This diverse panel will address the current environment for Russian NGOs, looking at how these groups seek to foster active civic engagement in today’s Russia.
