Abstract: This document is the outcome of a mapping exercise in 17 European countries. The subject of this mapping was the presence, appearance, significance and embedding of a phenomenon we call Citizen Initiatives for Global Solidarity, defined as small-scale initiatives or projects, set up by private persons in the North, aimed at the improvement of the living standards of people in the global South, and not sorting under the official development cooperation or cooperation through established NGDOs, corporations, or societal institutions. Whereas in some countries Citizen Initiatives for Global Solidarity have a well-known identity, in other countries they fare under a different banner, and sometimes they even pass unnoticed. An attempt to systematise the existing knowledge about this domain was therefore considered plausible and relevant.
