The most important social reality that defines the world we live in since the 1980s is Globalization. Globalization, in essence, is a social reality, a concept that symbolizes the change and transformation the world has experienced in recent years. It is not possible to solve the changes in political, economic, cultural and daily living areas in a country today (eg Turkey), nor to develop effective solution proposals to the problems created or deepened by these changes without sending them to globalization processes. Globalization, however, Is a process that brings the world into a "risk world" and in particular transforms developed countries and regions into a "risk society". As states, societies, intercultural relations and interactions become widespread in the world, We are not worrying about the future but we are not confident about the future. Therefore, globalization not only deepens the problems of social justice, but also causes the risk society to become more widespread, and thus the "risk world" to emerge. The individuals who are raised in the risk society are those who approach the problems based on fear, anxiety and insecurity at their individual level without asking themselves and their environment on the basis of fear, anxiety and insecurity and without asking how these problems have emerged and how these problems have emerged and the social and historical nature of these problems. It becomes a person. As a matter of fact, in the post-9/11 period, people were condemned to live in fear and anxiety all over the world, especially in Europe, instead of investigating the causes of terror, closing terrorist alarms to the outside world. This has caused both the definition of the concept of the country only on the axis of security and the recognition of the foreign field as insecure and hostile, causing people to be fanned in airports and the borders being closed to migrants and refugees. If globalization is a process that needs to be transformed and democratically controlled on the basis of the historical context of social change we are experiencing today, but on the basis of the social justice and security problems it carries, we can see that this transformation and control can not be achieved only through state and political actors and with an individual-based ideology.
This transformation and control, at the same time:
seeking solutions to social problems;
B) that the public space has been vilified of the democratic debate on these issues and;
C) in this way also requires an active civil society with a vision of creating a democratic society.
In this context, we will discuss the characteristics of the civil society model needed today and the necessary strategies for the transformation needed by emphasizing the importance of civil society in the 21st century.
In this context, the aims and objectives that our project aims to achieve are:
• To help the civilian organizations increase their productivity by working with the lack of knowledge and courage;
• Establishing a network of NGOs; Contributing to the creation of national NGO platforms;
• To provide opportunities to encourage positive / negative information and experience sharing among NGOs;
• Strengthening civil initiative by promoting the work of non-governmental organizations using mass media, thereby encouraging social entrepreneurship and increasing social awareness;
• Encouraging participation of CSOs in decision-making processes, improving their dialogue with the public, ensuring their institutional development and sustainability;
