About the research group

The research project ‘Dilemmas in sustainable development and CSOs in Bangladesh and Zambia’ studies local civil society organizations (CSOs) in Bangladesh and Zambia, as well as European CSOs working with or funding these CSOs. In these countries, legal and extra-legal measures have evolved that could affect the operations of CSOs in various ways. The project investigates how CSOs have evolved in this context and looks at the implications for policies aimed at promoting inclusive and sustainable development.
