The International Civil Society Centre’s 2019–2021 strategy includes a key aim; to bring into focus innovations that can benefit international civil society organisations (ICSOs). We believe our role is to create an understanding of which innovations can be applied to tackle common challenges.

To do this we will seek out the most promising innovations, from inside and outside the sector, and share them in our new annual Innovation Report from 2019. It will be built on information and experience garnered from our unique convenings of ICSO leaders, innovative foresighting communities and several case studies from our owner and collaborative partner CSOs’ work.

The report will:
• Discuss, analyse and appraise original and effective solutions, tools and resources,
• Look at new ways of working across the sector, in relation to a specific topic,
• Draw conclusions about what is and is not working, and
• Analyse the evolving external environment which will influence future ICSO innovation.

2019’s Theme

In partnership with JustLabs, the title of our inaugural 2019 edition is: ‘Responses to Populism in a Digitally-Enabled Era’.

The report will highlight the most promising innovations to tackle populist tendencies, build shared solidarity and promote new emerging narratives and public engagement around civic priorities, space and action. It will analyse the opportunities and challenges CSOs are encountering, as online spaces and technologies can both mobilise public support towards their globalised goals, but also facilitate false information attacks by interests opposed to these aims. It will review how both international and national CSOs and other civic actors are innovating to both capitalise on these opportunities and counter these challenges.
