In 2018 Council, Commission and the EP decided to cut part of the funds of the instrument for the Pre-Accession of Turkey. However, these funds supported, among other actions, projects concerning the migration flows, border control and the work of various NGOs. But the work of the NGOs is the cornerstone of all social efforts and deserves our full support
Our exhibition brought together civil society organisations focusing on various fields with outstanding stories.
