Data for paper entitled “Navigating Civic Space in a Time of COVID-19: The Case of Mozambique”, published by IESE in 2021.
Between January to December 2020, there are several events that stimulated the debate regarding civic space in the context of COVID-19 in Mozambique. This database created for the ‘Navigating Civic Space in a time of COVID-19’ research project, illustrates some of the main events and debates in Mozambique. The database contains pieces of media and official documents focused on civic space and the pandemic in the country, basically showing scenarios such as restricting space, opening space, changing rules, changing discourse, civic action, popular protest, including their respective actors.
Database created in Microsoft Office Excel.
This report builds on the Action for Empowerment and Accountability (A4EA) research project Navigating Civic Space, which seeks to analyze the extent to which COVID-19 is contributing to the opening or closing of space for civic action in three countries, namely Mozambique, Nigeria and Pakistan. Focusing on Mozambique, the report uses theoretical and methodological tools produced by the work stream and is essentially structured around the three main research questions: What is known about the civic space trend in Mozambique before the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic?; How are different actors responding to the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the civic space in Mozambique?; What are the medium and long term implications for governance in Mozambique?
