Disseminating best practices of advocacy and lobbying from Turkey and Europe for enhancement of democratic participation
The project led by Sivil Toplum Geliştirme Derneği (STGM – the Civil Society Development Center) aimed to develop the capacities of Turkish CSOs on advocacy and lobbying techniques, with the goal being to develop more effective civic participation within the country. In addition, a database regarding civil society involvement in public policymaking was developed to include best practices of participation in decision making and relevant policy documents and publications.
The project was funded by the Central Finance and Contracts Unit of Turkey under EuropeAid/135252/M/ACT/TR.
