This project is funded within the Civil Society Dialogue Programme – Political Criteria Grant Scheme (CSD-III/PC) 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.

Political Criteria Projects


4.9 million Euros of grants have been awarded to 39 projects that can be grouped in three main areas: human rights, fight against discrimination, and promotion of 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.
