Civil society under threat, Fundamental Rights Agency finds

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 19 gennaio 2018

In many parts of the EU, civil society is under threat, finds a new report by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). Given the vital role civil society plays in upholding democratic processes and in promoting human rights, decision makers need to ensure the important work of civil society is not undermined through policy and legal changes and funding cuts.
“A thriving democracy needs a healthy civil society. Unfortunately, the EU’s own civil society is facing a pattern of threats and pressures in many parts of the EU. Addressing this unacceptable situation should be a high priority for policy makers at EU and national levels,” says FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty.The ‘Challenges facing civil society organisations working on human rights in the EU’ report explores how these challenges vary across the EU. It points to:Threats, physical and verbal attacks against activists, as well as smear campaigns;
Legal changes that negatively affect civil society, such as freedom of assembly restrictions, often a by-product of counter-terrorism laws;
Shrinking budgets and increased difficulties in getting funding;
Lack of appropriate involvement of civil society in law- and policy-making.
Member States should abide by the laws, including international standards that recommend civil society participation in policy cycles. Due attention must also be paid to ensure that new or redrafted laws and policies do not undermine the work of civil society. Civil society funding also needs to be protected. In addition, channels of dialogue between civil society and the EU need to be strengthened to ensure their concerns are heard and addressed. This includes finding ways to collect comparable and reliable data on the challenges civil society face, such as threats, intimidation and attacks. This report contains promising practices that are being used to address these challenges.

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 23 novembre 2009

Roma 24 novembre presso l’Holiday Inn Rome-EUR Parco dei Medici, viale Castello della Magliana 65 si svolgerà il convegno sul tema: Extended threat management: il futuro Nella sicurezza delle reti. In un contesto in cui le minacce mutano a ritmi elevati, è fondamentale disporre di soluzioni di Security flessibili, capaci di evolvere rapidamente e di bloccare minacce non ancora descritte come tali. Un approccio innovativo alla Sicurezza è quello dell’XTM (Extended Threat Management), concepito come evoluzione del tradizionale UTM. Cosa sono e perchè sono nate le soluzioni di Unified Threat Management (UTM) oggi disponibili sul mercato? Quali sono i limiti di queste soluzioni e in che modo le soluzioni di Extended Threat Management (XTM) consentono di superarli? Quali sono i mercati a cui si rivolgono? Queste alcune delle domande cui sarà data risposta nel corso del convengo che si concluderà con una dimostrazione dal vivo delle principali soluzioni XTM di WatchGuard La partecipazione all’evento è gratuita, previa registrazione.
