We live in volatile, uncertain, and complex times. So, how do we navigate an age of uncertainty and complexity in global development? In this series, we explore the Future of Partos - the Dutch Development Cooperation Association that brings together nearly 110 Dutch Development NGOs.
In this podcast episode we dive deeper into the Future Pathway of shifting space for civil society together with international thought leaders Lysa John and Barbara Oosters. What is civil society, what is the current state of civil society and what are positive and negative trends that will influence the work of civil society in the next 5 to 10 years?

Barbara Oosters is Civic Space lead at Oxfam Novib. She is an experienced professional in the field of global development. She is a passionate human rights advocate having spent more than 18 years working on creating an enabling environment for civil society actors to thrive internationally.
