Criticism not welcome? Civil society under pressure

Are critical civil actors silenced?

Civil society isn’t just increasingly under pressure in Central and Eastern Europe; here in Germany the legitimacy and mandate of civil-society organisations is also being criticised. What must – and can – these organisations do? Who defines the scope of their power and responsibility? Can a legal framework help to shore up free speech?
