TACSO Highlights - Resource centres in focus

In order to sustain the outputs and outcomes generated by the TACSO Project as well as the Project's functions, an open call was issued at the end of March 2014 for national Resource Centres (RC) - Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in the region. Since the partnerships began between the national TACSO offices and the RCs, the intention has been to gradually handover TACSO's functions to the RCs while also strengthening the organisations' capacities and providing support in improving their delivery of services to CSOs. 

The selected Resource Centres*  have decades of experience in civil society development and are: 

- Consortium of VESTA Association and Trainer's Network Association in BiH Bosnia and Herzegovina;

- Kosovar Civil Society Foundation (KCSF) - Kosovo; 

- Macedonian Center for International Cooperation (MCIC) - former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia; 

- Center for the Development of Non-Governmental Organizations (CRNVO) Montenegro; 

- Consortium of Civic Initiatives, Human Rights House, Foundation for New Communications Dokukino and Center for Development of Non-Profit Sector Serbia; and 

- Civil Society Development Centre (STGM) - Turkey. 

Together, the TACSO national offices and the RCs have organised numerous events, including conferences, workshops, trainings and information events on various topics including social entrepreneurship, communication and visibility, human rights, and quality assurance systems among others. 

The below articles help mark the one year anniversary between TACSO and the Resource Centres by highlighting the added value of the partnerships and the new aspects in the types and amount of support offered by both.
