Youth Citizenship in Divided Societies

Civil Society Networks

The networks below represent connections between youth organizations, community centres, civil society actors, and their various donors and partners, working on issues of youth citizenship.

 The donor networks highlight the main financial backers of youth citizenship projects in each country. The size and hue of the node represents the number of organisations that donor funds. The large and medium sized red and purple nodes are donors, while the smaller blue dots are recipients. The size of donor here is not indicated by amount of funding dispersed, which is not always known, but rather by the number of recipients.

 The donor/partner networks illustrate not only the funding relationships between donor and recipient, but also mutual partnerships between organizations. This could include membership in a coalition, collaboration on a project, a training or capacity building relationship, or other form of partnership. Here the size of the node represents the centrality of the organisation, that is, how well-connected the organisation is to other well-connected organisations. The colour of the node represents the type of organisation. Local NGOs (blue), are any locally registered NGO, youth centre, community-based organisation, charity, school, campaign, political party, or other similar organisation involved in youth citizenship promotion (or in partnership with an organisation that is), at the local or national level. Other types of actors include international NGOs (such as CIVICUS), intergovernmental organisations (particularly EU and UN bodies), state agency (including national, provincial, and municipal agencies within the country), international donor representatives (including foreign embassies and development agencies such as USAID), businesses (including local businesses, banks, and international corporations), and foundations (grant making bodies).
