The New Roles of CSOs for Inclusive Development Programme (the Assumptions Programme), running from 2017 until 2020, has come to its final chapter. After the launch of the final synthesis report Room to Breathe, marking the first stage of the programmes closure, the programme has come to end with the launch of the online magazine Assumptions in the Spotlight. The brochure highlights how southern CSOs juggle their lobbying and advocacy roles.

The New Roles of CSOs for Inclusive Development Programme was a fruitful collaboration between the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, NWO-WOTRO and INCLUDE that allowed eight international research groups to scrutinize the assumptions underlying the Dialogue & Dissent policy framework of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs as input for its successor Power of Voices. The great merit of the eight research projects is that they showed how the underlying assumptions are valid in specific contexts and how Southern CSOs have to navigate in extremely complex environments.
