Our first ever annual Innovation Report in 2019 – ‘Civil Society Innovation and Populism in a Digital Era’, in partnership with JustLabs – showcases 14 innovative civil society responses in the face of rising populism, one of the defining political features of our times. This is the first publication to take a broad civil society overview in documenting and sharing effective response strategies and case studies from a range of organisations – national CSOs and networks, ICSOs and campaigns or movements.
It presents different innovative strategies by CSOs that respond effectively to some of the challenges and defining features of populism. The case studies include reflections on specific contextual factors – including the role of digital media – and details of the audiences targeted, the tools and tactics used, and the stage of implementation. All are trying new methods of strengthening CSO impact, legitimacy and relevant in contexts where populism presents challenges to this,

With our systematic overview of the case studies, we hope that civil society organisations around the world are inspired to adapt and deploy new strategies to respond in contexts of growing populism.
