Open Society Central Asia Project

The Open Society Central Eurasia Project uses grantmaking to international and regional NGOs, academic institutions, think tanks and other structures to support their work, help build local capacity, bring international expertise to bear on the region, and promote cooperation between local activists and international civic movements.

The ultimate goal of such activity is to strengthen civic leaders in the region and to construct support networks for them within international structures and movements. Central Eurasia Project grantmaking generally dovetails with its research and advocacy agenda.
