Prof. Fionnuala Ní Aoláin Mentioned in Financial Express Regarding Restrictions on Civil Society Ahead of Climate Summit

Professor Fionnuala Ní Aoláin was recently mentioned in The Financial Express on the calls for the Egyptian government to release its restrictions on participation in civil society. Amongst a wave of arrests, NGO asset freezes, and travel restrictions, there is concern whether Sharm el Sheikh is a suitable place to host COP27, given that civil engagement is critical when it comes to addressing climate change. The situation raises the question of whether a more robust criteria for future hosts needs to be developed.
