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.

Grant Competition

Request for Applications for
 
The 2009 Yerevan Municipal Elections Grants

The USAID Civic Advocacy Support Program (CASP), implemented by Counterpart International, announces its solicitation of Request for Applications (RFA) from civil society organizations (CSOs) to receive grant support from Counterpart/CASP for election related projects. In an effort to strengthen and expand the role and participation of CSOs and the Armenian public in the elections processes, Counterpart/CASP seeks to competitively select non-partisan election related initiatives for funding.

Grant applicants must be registered as legal entities in Armenia, and may be from a broad group of non-state entities, including associations, foundations, non-profit organizations, media, academic and research centers and for-profit organizations pursuing a public purpose.

The Yerevan Municipal Elections Grants will support non-partisan election related initiatives to be implemented before, on and after Election Day, which has been set for May 31, 2009.

Election grants will achieve the following result(s):

  • Strengthen the role and participation of civil society organizations and the public in the election process;
  • Increase citizen awareness and knowledge of information and events revolving around 2007 -2009 election cycles;
  • Increase and improve citizen, candidate, and political party dialogue for more responsive policy platforms and accountability.

Grant projects may include but are not limited to:

  1. non-partisan monitoring of all elements necessary for a free and fair electoral process;
  2. awareness raising campaigns on electoral rights and principles;
  3. organization of public fora, town hall meetings and candidate debates, with a goal of facilitating meaningful and substantive dialogue with and vetting of candidates seeking office;
  4. legal aid provision (including quick response groups formation);
  5. voter lists correction (some districts will be  given preference for voter lists activities)
  6. exit polls; and
  7. media projects aimed at electoral awareness raising activities.

Counterpart/CASP is requesting applications from civil society organizations with relevant mission, strategy, expertise and capacity and proven political neutrality and non-partisanship to carry out election-related initiatives. CSOs can apply for one of the following types of grants with required 20% cost share:

  1. Small Grants with an amount of up to 3,000,000 AMD that support initiatives implemented in up to one and/or two communities (Tagh) of Yerevan.
  2. Large Grants with amount of 9,000,000 AMD that support media content production and large coalitions’ projects covering all of Yerevan.

Each organization or coalition is eligible to submit only one project proposal. CSOs included in a coalition as a member-organization that submit a proposal for this grant are not eligible to apply with an individual proposal in addition to being a member of the coalition.

To be considered, completed proposals should be submitted in one hard copy in either English or ARMENIAN, signed and sealed by the legal representative of the organization(s) by the deadline. An electronic version (on floppy disk, CD) of the RFA must be also submitted in addition to the hard copy. Note, that organizations with projects selected will be required to have both English and Armenian copies of all grants documents on file. 

The Deadline for submission of application is March 23, 2008 16:00.
