Association

Registration is required for non-governmental organisations (NGOs), which is normally routine and quick, and NGOs are required to submit audited accounts. Apart from this, there are few reported restrictions on the ability of CSOs to operate, although some states recommended that improvements in the freedom of association be made during the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) Universal Periodic Review of the Seychelles in January 2016. Space for dialogue with government exists and is structured through a national civil society platform.
