Human rights protection and civil society development

Previous experiences demonstrate how crucial it is to develop a strong local civil society capable to participate in policy development and engage in human rights protection to ensure the advocacy and delivery of rights-based social services, as well as to ensure equal access to decision making, especially for people living in vulnerable and marginalized communities. Participatory incentives and enhanced efforts in building foundations for broad-based democratic ownership from CSOs and LAs are an important catalyst to address concerns regarding the protection of human rights and empowerment of ethnic minorities.  CENN works on civil society development, including formal and non-formal groups. We believe that a strong and competent civil society furthers self-reliance and resilience of society.
