The project

This project aims to increase the centrality of communities in documenting and analysing common global conditions affecting our ESCR by strengthening participatory approaches to documentation and monitoring among ESCR-Net members.

Through working closely with social movement members, along with their communities and their allied partners, we hope to: develop, carry out, monitor and document strategies that reflect the lived experience and resistance in communities; amplify narratives; and build connections across struggles.
