Since 2011 TUSEV
has been implementing the Civil Society Monitoring Project which annually
documents the state of civil society in Turkey. The TUSEV team is very pleased
to share with you the Civil Society Monitoring Report 2012 which was
carried out thanks to the support of the Chrest Foundation, Open Society
Foundation, and the German Marshall Fund The Black Sea Trust for Regional
Cooperation. The Civil Society Monitoring Report examines the state of civil
society in light of the developments in 2011-2012 period. Within this regard,
the Monitoring Report analyses the existing situation in Turkey and delivers
recommendations on the "legal framework”, "institutional capacity”,
"international relations” and "research” aspects of civil society.
Additionally, this year’s report has an annex which examines the "media
visibility of civil society” in Turkey through case studies.
The Civil Society
Monitoring Report is the only report prepared by CSOs in Turkey, which provide
an overall picture regarding the state of the third sector in the country.
Therefore, TUSEV strongly believes that the analysis and the recommendations
set forth in this report must be taken into consideration by all stakeholders
including the public sector, private sector, media and donors.
