  • Convening stakeholders and sponsoring dialog;

  • Raising awareness, dispelling myths and promoting a framework based on protecting the positive contribution civil society makes to human security.

  • Coordinating advocacy by engaging the nonprofit sector with allies to support national security rules that respect the work of legitimate civil society organizations.
