The advisory committee is comprised of prominent and credible members of Turkish society. The main objective of the committee is to provide advice, guidance and recommendations to improve the effectiveness of the project on “Striving for Good Governance: Civil Society Strengthening and Youth Empowerment “.
The Project summary is as follows: The revival of populism, nativism, insidious authoritarianism and anti-globalism tend to be new global trends whereby civil society groups face new challenges and constraints. The aim of the project is to strengthen the profile and capacity based on the premise that a strong civil society is an essential pillar of democracy. It is unthinkable to attain democracy without good governance which involves citizens and civil society organizations in articulating and being actively involved in policies that affect them.
The study will result in two significant outcomes: The first is a CSO needs assessment report based on a high level roundtable discussion and workshops with inclusive consultations. The second part will focus on a range of capacity building activities. An NGO "Clinique" will be established offering numerous trainings to increase the knowledge and awareness of NGOs on most urgent needs to facilitate and strengthen participatory democracy. Youth will be the specific focus of the project with the aim to increase their involvement in civil society at the national and international levels.
