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 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.
