400 West 59th Street, NY 10019 New York

Objectifs :

The Open Society Institute (OSI), a private operating and grantmaking foundation, aims to shape public policy to promote democratic governance, human rights, and economic, legal, and social reform. On a local level, OSI implements a range of initiatives to support the rule of law, education, public health, and independent media. At the same time, OSI works to build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as combating corruption and rights abuses.

Actions financées :

The Network Women’s Program (NWP) works to promote the advancement of women’s human rights, gender equality, and empowerment as an integral part of the process of democratization. The program operates worldwide as a consultative and operational program, working directly with and providing technical assistance to entities inside the Soros foundations network on gender issues.—OSI’s Middle East & North Africa Initiative (MENA) acts as the primary contact point and clearinghouse for OSI activity in the region. The project operates from both New York and Washington, DC, with program staff making regular, extended visits to the region. MENA’s overall approach is to assist in assembling a network dedicated to open society issues such as transparency, rule of law, accountability, minority rights, strengthening and empowering civil society, empowerment of women, addressing the knowledge deficit, and fostering and supporting independent media. In addition, MENA supports a number of scholarships in law and other disciplines such as culture and the arts, as a means of fostering freedom of expression and critical thinking.

Critères d’octroi :

Activities related to Iran are dedicated to promoting open society and enhancing understanding and dialogue between Iran and the international community through seminars, exchanges, and policy initiatives. Work in Turkey is based on a highly successful partnership with indigenous philanthropy in support of open society issues, while MENA activities in Egypt, Israel, the occupied Palestinian Territories, and some countries of the Maghreb focus on efforts to promote civic inclusion and respect for the rights of the individual.
