Civil Society Support, Capacity-Building & Cooperation
At the heart of our mission, we establish partnerships with local civil society actors and support their endeavours to advance justice, human rights, and the rule of law in their respective countries. This support takes the form of collaborative activities and initiatives aimed at fostering positive change.
We develop and implement joint projects with local civil society partners, carry out joint activities with them on agreed priority issues, and provide tailored assistance and capacity building depending on their needs. We work with both well-established civil society organisations and emerging and grassroots initiatives, and our capacity-building encompasses both expert-led training sessions and hands-on cooperation.
We also support networking and coalition-building among civil society groups from different countries and facilitate cross-country cooperation on countering human rights violations.
