Association of Renaissance Institute is very happy to announce that the project application “Organizational Transparency Research Study to the Youth Cooperation Initiative (YCI)” is approved by The National Council of Swedish Youth Organisations (LSU).
Following the Global Youth Network (GYN) first meeting held in Kenya in November 2014 organized by LSU, the Turkish and Lebanese youth ambassadors decided to create a partnership between their two organizations, mainly due to the fact that they share many similarities regarding the culture, youth contexts and also due to the geographic proximity of these two countries.
Many Skype meetings between the participants followed to decide on the best collaboration plan and we basically came up with two plan suggestions but decided to move on with one plan for the time being due to budget restraints.
In this project we focus on organizational transparency one of the topics of the GYN because we believe to have a major lack in it in both our countries.
In this context, we decided to conduct a joint research based on data we collect from organizations in both our countries to help us evaluate the current situation based on these samples and come up with a common summary and recommendations.
