The role and protagonism of civil society in the facing of the Covid-19 pandemic in Brazil

August 11, 2021

This study examines the path trailed by civil society and Brazilian philanthropy since the 1980s, which is crucial to the understanding of the dynamics and trends that support one of the theses developed throughout this work: civil society as a strategic element in the consolidation process of Brazilian democracy. Civil society organizations (CSOs) faced, in recent years, numerous reputation attacks and challenges concerning their political and financial sustainability. Faced with the Covid-19 crisis, they sought not only to oppose the prevailing denial and necropolitics through the construction of political agendas and networking, but also to produce responses based on the development of a set of practices and experiences founded on self-management and community organization. From a study of multiple cases, conducted with institutions selected according to the established criteria, it was determined that the CSOs were capable of building agendas, narratives, languages and forms of production and organization based on self-management, experiences based on a social dynamic where work and politics tend to coincide, as part of a process involving, at the same time, the organization of activism and production. They found independent ways to provide innovative responses to the crisis, coordinating actors, territories and communities, initiatives and resources, and searching for solutions involving everything from the distribution of food baskets to conducting information and humanitarian aid campaigns, in addition to conceiving innovative activism and resistance strategies, in the face of an adverse scenario.

Collaborative Philanthropy

August 20, 2021

There are opportunities and room for philanthropy sector to cross new borders regarding collective and collaborative action. Whether in the sense of articulation, when there are several players dedicated to the same causes and/or territories or to similar or complementary agendas, or in the search for engagement of new players – considering that there is still a great deal of potential to increase grants both in volume and number of donors, making the field ever more diverse. This publication addresses the concept of Collaborative Philanthropy, not only presenting an overview of the processes, formats and modes of action, but also seeking to illustrate ways for qualified enhanced collaboration in the field of philanthropy and social investment.

What the Pandemic Told Us About Giving

June 16, 2021

Based on a phenomenological investigation, this article seeks to illuminate the nature of the changes that have occurred in the Brazilian culture of giving ignited by the mobilization consequent to the impacts of Covid-19, as well as its patterns or permanence. This text seeks to portray part of the cultural movement of giving, so that the reader can see some of the essential features of the explored phenomenon (HOLDREDGE, 2005), reflecting and constructing their own images. The year 2020 was marked by a reflex-giving, however, its experimentation by many, hitherto non-donors, added to a deeper reflection on how it happens and what is generated by the way it is done. It has the potential to bring about significant changes for the years to come.

Mapping on Terrorrism Financing Risk in Nonprofit Organizations in Member Countries of the Financial Action Task Force of Latin America: A Nonprofit Organization Sector Regional Report - Excerpt

January 31, 2021

This report is the result of numerous dialogues held over the years with representatives of civil society, Financial Action Task Force (FATF) standards specialists, regulatory agency authorities, and financial institution representatives. It is also the result of research conducted by FATF experts and experts from the Global Non-profit Organization (NPO) Coalition on FATF on the impact of the preventive framework against terrorist financing on the daily practice of organizations that exercise their freedom of association and contribute to the common good.So far, the debate on the problem of misuse of NPOs for terrorist financing in Latin America has been characterized by assertions based on generalizations rather than on data. Stakeholders have not been able to sit around the table to identify evidence of risk or discuss deficiencies in policies or procedures. The lack of a shared basic understanding of the proper implementation of Recommendation 8 is a major challenge.
