Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics

General Description

Although not new in the developed part of the world, the concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and ethical leadership are making first steps in gaining popularity in developing countries, with Armenia being not an exception. Nowadays many Armenians can hardly explain what constitutes to be a good corporate citizen, which is quite often confused with engaging in charitable activities. It is obvious that any for-profit entity is mainly concerned with earning and accumulating wealth, but the current worldwide trend is that this is not the only determinant of their existence and long-term success. More and more businesses realize that they do not operate in a vacuum; continuous interaction with different stakeholders is critical, with serious considerations for the environment, economically vulnerable populations, and the society as a whole.

In light of the above, it is therefore paramount to raise ethical competence and integrity standards of local managers for them to succeed in today's competitive and highly demanding world. With this in mind, the given training is aimed at familiarizing the audience with the theoretical framework for corporate social responsibility and business ethics, addressing the issues of its practical application, and exploring its contributions and limitations to the society.

Call for Applications from the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation of the German Marshall Fund

2012 Confidence Building in the South Caucasus – a joint initiative of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Black Sea Trust The Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation of the German Marshall Fund (BST) are continuing their joint funding initiative to support confidence building activities of non-state actors in the South Caucasus and its neighboring regions.

Projects related to Turkish-Armenian rapprochement are also supported by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. Partners are convinced that civil society can make a valuable contribution to the process of confidence building, mutual understanding and reconciliation between populations in territories involved in (armed) conflicts. This initiative is designed to encourage grantees to investigate new ways, methods and approaches to generating mutual understanding.

Program Description
The projects should be initiated by civil society organizations, who can successfully involve various population groups from the region in their projects’ activities. Organizations requesting grants must be legally registered in one of the following countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Moldova, Romania, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine. The involvement of additional partners (especially those from the EU) is possible and welcome.

Projects working in the following areas would be especially appreciated:

  • cross-border initiatives for youth;
  • approaches to civic education or active citizenship;
  • approaches to reconciliation and peace that incorporate experiences from history and convey them to the younger generation;
  • the role of media in overcoming stereotypes.

A special emphasis is placed on multilateral initiatives and those that reach out to the neighboring countries – Russia and Turkey. Projects should be exemplary and make use of novel and innovative means of building trust.

The average grant will be around 20,000 USD (about 14,000 EUR), multilateral projects can in special cases exceed that amount. The projects must be completed by April 30, 2013 and reported to BST within two months of the project’s completion. The maximum duration of the project should not exceed 6 months. BST can support exceptional projects that may exceed the maximum duration.

 Application The entire program administration is carried out by BST on behalf of both partners. Project proposals must be submitted in English only, using the application and budget forms that can be found at http://www.gmfus.org/grants-fellowships/grantmaking-programs/black-sea-trust/confidence-building/

Decisions about selection and funding of the submitted projects will be taken jointly by representatives of both donors, with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation involved only in Turkish-Armenian reconciliation projects. A grant letter to the selected projects will be issued by the BST by October 2012.

Grantees must submit the final reports in English only, using the two forms that can be found at http://www.gmfus.org/grants-fellowships/grantmaking-programs/black-sea-trust/confidence-building/. Interested parties may consult the following contact persons, who are prepared to provide advance consultation if needed: Nino Liluashvili – BST representative for Georgia and Armenia (nliluashvili@gmfus.org) Mehriban Rahimli – BST representative for Azerbaijan (mrahimli@gmfus.org)

The deadline for submitting applications is August 1, 2012. Applications can be currently sent to confidencebuilding@gmfus.org .
