International Budget Partnership, Oxfam and local partners will host an interactive conversation about to explore experiences and strategies of navigating the complexities of opening and closing of governance spaces, and pursuing more equitable public resource use in contexts of increasing inequality. The session will showcase experiences and lessons learned from country-level civil society fiscal governance initiatives and the implications for work on the ground. This session will offer new perspectives to the way participants conceptualize closing civic space issues and better equip them to work on fiscal governance issues in their country with new tools and ideas.
