BİRLEŞMİŞ MILLETLER’E STK/NGO STATÜSÜYLE NASIL ÜYE OLUNUR?

Birleşmiş Milletler bünyesinde, gerek Amerika gerekse Türkiye kapsamında etkin ve dinamik, Türkiye Cumhuriyeti’nin temel kuruluş prensipleri doğrultusunda ve dünya çapında görünebilir ve de var olabilmenin yolu, BM’den, özellikle UN–DGC’ye ve/veya ECOSOC (UN-Economic Social Council); –en azından bu ikisinden birine üye- olmaktan geçer.

Birleşmiş Milletler, STK’lar ile üniversite/yüksek egitim kurumlarını, amaçları doğrultusunda programlarını gerçekleştirme de, özellikle diğer üye STK’lar başta olmak üzere BM bünyesinde gerek Daimi Temsilcilikler ile gerekse BM birimleri ve akademik kuruluşlar ve özel sektör ile işbirliğine teşvik eder

HOW TO PROTECT INDEPENDENT SCIENCE AND ENSURE OUR INNOVATIONS ARE IN TUNE WITH OUR HEALTH AND HUMAN RIGHTS? A Necessity for Free and Healthy Communities

LAICISM IS TO TREAT ALL BELIEVERS AND NON-BELIEVERS EQUALLY, AND LEAVE RELIGION IN THE PRIVATE DOMAIN

Raising children with required values and as useful members of the society requires high qualities. Therefore, women, being the nation’s mothers, need to be more enlightened and progressive than men.
