Civil Society Dialogue Between EU And Turkey -III

Civil Society Dialogue is a programme bringing together civil society organisations from Turkey and the EU around common topics, to exchange knowledge and experience, and to build a sustained conversation between the organisations.
The Programme is co-financed by the European Union and the Republic of Turkey under the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA). The Ministry for European Union Affairs is the responsible institution for the technical implementation of the programme, while the Central Finance and Contracts Unit is the contracting authority.

Since its launch in 2008, the Civil Society Dialogue Programme has supported over 200 dialogue partnerships in many different fields, witnessing hundreds of activities to bring EU and Turkish communities closer together and create a greater mutual understanding amongst them. To date through the first three phase, a total of 31.6 million Euros has funded these activities.

Grants amounting to 4.9 million Euros have been awarded to 39 projects on three main priorities: human rights, anti-discrimination and democracy and the rule of law.
These grant projects will be implemented by partnerships of over 40 CSOs from Turkey and the EU with the goal of enabling civil society to make its contributions to the political reform process and to assist it in conveying the results of this process to the public. To this end, these CSO partnerships will be hosting a series of mutual learning and knowledge sharing activities, at locations across Europe and Turkey.
