Autumn Series 1 - Andrew Leigh MP and Anabel Cruz, on civil space and advocacy

Welcome to our first episode of the Good Will Hunters Autumn Series: The Future of the NGO.

This series is presented with generous sponsorship from Alinea-Whitelum. Learn more about their work here https://alineawhitelum.com

In this episode, hosts Rachel Mason Nunn and Paul Ronalds speak with Anabel Cruz and Andrew Leigh MP on increasing restrictions on civil society. In particular, we ask how do NGOs continue to advocate in an increasingly antagonistic political environment?

Anabel Cruz is the Founder Director of the Communication and Development Institute (ICD) of Uruguay, a civil society organisation with more than 26 years of experience in strengthening civil society and citizen participation. Anabel was also Chair of the Board of CIVICUS. Andrew Leigh is the Shadow Assistant Minister for Treasury and Charities, and Federal Member for Fenner in the ACT. Prior to this, Andrew was a professor of economics at the Australian National University.
