Last but not least, I attended Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government Executive Education Programme in 2011.

I manage projects in the field of capacity building of civil society, improving the legal environment, strengthening public-CSO dialogue, social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility, volunteerism, civic innovation and strengthening the civil society dialogue between Turkey and EU.

I take the lead for the development of “Civil Society Sector Strategy of Turkey”, which is one of the fundamental sectors within EU Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA) Funding to Turkey and responsible for programming and management of “civil society sector” under IPA Funding.
