The 2016 State of Civil Society Report summarises the key events, issues and trends affecting civil society around the world. This 5th annual report includes 33 guest contributions from civil society activists, leaders and experts on the theme of exclusion and civil society, 27 survey responses from national and regional civil society networks that are members of CIVICUS Affinity Group of National Associations (AGNA), and a series of interviews with people close to the key civil society stories of the day. Contributions on this year's special theme address a wide range of different forms of exclusion, including exclusion by gender, sexual identity, age (for children, young people and older people), disability, mental health and HIV status, indigeneity, ethnicity, refugee and migration status, faith, location, income and vulnerability to climate change. The guest contributions are further analysed in a thematic overview (author abstract).
