CSO DEVELOPMENT EFFECTIVENESS

The Istanbul Principles in Practice in Canada

 

 

Since the Istanbul Principles were adopted in 2010, CCIC has run a series of workshops across the country to raise awareness about these new international standards for civil society. In doing so, organizations have repeatedly indicated that the most useful tool to help them translate the Principles into practice would be a series of case studies that profile best and most innovative practices in the sector – as it relates to each principle. What follows is just that.

Collectively the case studies show that development is a complicated and iterative process. That learning is an essential part of that. And that no single case study – in particular when it comes to best practice - can be defined by a single Principle.
