Abstract

Main findings:

1. The Northern Irish community of civil society organisations is healthy and politically active. Its main challenges come from the potential loss of funding and from the effects of political instability.

2. Exchanges with policymakers have decreased in the last year. The transfer of policy-making power from the Assembly and Executive to the NI Civil Service and the NI Office was not associated with an increase in advocating to those institutions.

3. While not all organisations call for an end to the political deadlock, the majority laments its negative impacts and has clear views on the role of civil society organisations in solving the stalemate.
