Space for Faith-Based Organizations in times of COVID-19
Commissioned by Civic Engagement Alliance, academic Annette Jansen (1), did a desk research concerning the specific roles of faith actors in the COVID-19 response. Also she investigated the impact of COVID-19 on civic space. In what way did the COVID-19 restrictions on movement and association hamper the work of faith-based actors in Ethiopia, Indonesia and at the global level? Could faith-based organizations and actors continue to play a role as advocates of marginalized groups?
