The report is a comparative study of enabling environments – defined broadly as action or inaction by States and other actors to promote a particular non-State sector – for associations and businesses.

The Special Rapporteur asserts that businesses generally operate in better environments, largely because States and other key actors make great efforts to create such environments, whereas those actors often make comparatively little effort to improve the environment for associations. The report provides scores of examples of differential treatment from some 50 UN Member States.
