DemNet has been providing "democracy support "since 1996 with a special focus on civil society development in Hungary and in countries of Western Balkans and Eastern Europe, also expanding its work to Arab Spring countries.
The aim of civil society programs are:
1) empowerment of CSOs and grassroots, community initiatives (special emphasis put on capacity building to develop advocacy skills);
2) improve sustainability of NGOs (developing skills for accessing different type of funding, transfer of techniques for resource diversification, introducing new and innovative operation forms, approaches like social enterprise or social innovation), and
3) foster civil society actors' social embededdness (e.g. partnership building between different sectors, transparent impact communication).
