On Friday, March 10, the presentation of the program Democracy and Good Governance took place at the office of the International Renaissance Foundation.

The presentation was attended by employees of this program, as well as experts and representatives of public organizations, in particular, Eskender Bariiev, Head of the Board of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center.

The participants of this event were acquainted with the key priorities of the program, with the goals of the program, with the direction in which more work will be carried out. The key priorities were named: challenges in the field of democratic development of the state, renewal and environmental protection.

We remind you that the Crimean Tatar Resource Center has been working on the issues of de-occupation and reintegration of the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol since the first days of its establishment. Eskender Bariiev noted that, speaking about the challenges in the field of renewal, we should talk about the national level.

“Even when we are talking about temporarily occupied territories, it is worth distinguishing between those territories that were occupied for several days, weeks, months, and territories that were more than 9 years old. The very specifics, the very approach is completely different. And when we talk about reintegration issues, we must take into account all these factors. Therefore, there will be a huge role for the public to ensure that these territories go through painless reintegration processes. Therefore, the Renaissance Foundation and this program can become key in the participation of civil society in these processes”,- the expert explained.
