This is the first of what we hope will become an annual Civil Society Scorecard exercise in which CSOs hold IGOs to account for the public claims and promises they make to include CSOs in their work. The opinion of your organisation is important.

Since this is the first attempt at this survey, we are only interested in civil society engagement at the global (or headquarters) level. So, when answering the questions please think about your organisations’ experience engaging at the global level, rather than with country or regional offices. As this Civil Society Scorecard develops past its pilot phase we will expand it to include more IGOs and at more levels. But for now we are only focused on the experience of your organisation at the global level.

Please choose one of the ten IGOs to assess. The survey can be taken multiple times if you would like to tell us about more than one IGO in the list below. You will be asked to answer a series of questions relating to different aspects of engaging with IGOs. This survey should not take longer than 10 minutes.

CIVICUS was founded in 1993 and is dedicated to strengthening citizen action and civil society throughout the world, especially in areas where participatory democracy and citizens’ freedom of association are challenged. For more information about CIVICUS click here.
