» ENGAGING CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANIZATIONS
Eurasia Partnership Foundation (EPF) has been facilitating the Small Grants Program for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to engage civil society organizations in Azerbaijan between 2014 and 2016. The program sought to strengthen the civil society sector’s ability to advocate effectively in order to improve both public oversight of, and engagement with, the Government of Azerbaijan around issues of human rights, democratization, and good governance. Through both small grants (which included opportunities for training and capacity building in specific areas, as justified by grantees’ needs) and continuous support from EPF to funded organizations, EPF enabled CSOs to mobilize the public to monitor and/or assess government actions, to partner with the new and traditional media to communicate their messages to the broader public, and to articulate their recommendations to government officials. The results are focused upon the development of a vibrant civil society advocating for and working on monitoring, advocacy, capacity-building, and information campaigns in the areas of human rights, democratization, and good governance.
