Based the input of more than 170 civil society representatives from more than 50 countries around the world, this report explains the hesitation of many groups worldwide to engage with the United Nations on counterterrorism-related issues, the range of barriers they face, and their aspirations for the UN's role in promoting and protecting civil society and civic space.
