Between 2015 and 2016, COTA led a study on the legitimacy of the Civil Society Organizations (CSO). The study focus on the French-speaking Belgian organizations and proposes keys for reading, to make this sensitive subject a strategical resource for these organizations and for the sector.
In January, 2017, we published the whole study, entitled “Towards a reappropriation of the concept of legitimacy within the framework of the cooperation to development and of international solidarity”. It comes along with a synthesis of about ten pages and with a feature article on the subject, available for consultation and downloadable here (in French).
To make this work lively, we created a board game which takes back the contents of the study. This game allows the CSO to raise the subject in a playful way and to begin a strategical reflection on their own profile of legitimacy ; it will be available in the end of April.
