The Vietnamese Ministry of Home Affairs released its draft Law on Associations in June 2015, which would regulate Vietnam’s domestic civil society sector. The draft is available in Vietnamese here, and we expect that an English translation will be forthcoming shortly in Hanoi. The Vietnamese National Assembly is scheduled to take up discussion of the Law on Associations in 2016.
