CIVIC SPACE SITUATION REPORT: JANUARY - MARCH 2022
Overall civic space in Sudan remains REPRESSED, however unlike the slow and steady decline witnessed over previous quarters the decline during the first quarter of 2022 was significant. Rights of association and assembly were hardest hit with continued enforcement of the state of emergency and the violent response of authorities to peaceful protests calling for a return to civilian rule following the military coup of 25 October 2021. Rights of freedom of expression and access to information has also deteriorated significantly with journalists being targeted and harassed by authorities and official news agencies such as Al-Jazeera Mubashir having their licenses revoked for their active coverage of the protests.
