We believe that all people have the right to join together to make their communities and the world a better place. To achieve this, everyone needs a safe, legal environment that supports civic freedoms, philanthropy, and public participation.

We work with civil society organizations, governments, and the international community to strengthen the legal environment for civil society. For more than twenty-five years, ICNL has worked alongside partners in more than 100 countries, providing us with in-depth expertise from local to global contexts.
