The Inquiry’s futures work found that people were concerned about the marginalisation of dissent in the UK, Ireland and in the global context. To explore this issue further, we hosted a series of events to explore various issues surrounding the marginalisation of dissent in relation to the work of civil society associations, and what the particular roles of civil society associations are in enabling dissent.
