General Assembly and Our Members

As the Checks and Balances Network (CBN), we bring together people and institutions from various opinions, encourage people to have a dialogue, and take care   to exchange information through comprehensive and constructive discussions in all our efforts. All our members meet once a year to determine our general strategy and work program, and make all the decisions together and in consensus. Our structure functions through a system in which responsibilities are shared and actors check each other instead of a single decision-making mechanism.

Network members: Composed of NGOs that are institutional members of the CBN. Members contribute to preparing strategic plans and determining stance and policy recommendations of the Network in line with political developments.

General assembly: All the institutional members from across Turkey constitute the network’s general assembly, with centers located in Adana, Ankara, Bursa, Diyarbakır, Van, İstanbul, İzmir, Kayseri, and Samsun. Every NGO that is a member of the network can be represented by one person in each reform group in the network. Every member institution takes part in the network with at least three contact people. Every member of the network has equal responsibilities, which are listed below. Every NGO that is a member of the network can select one of their representatives from among their professional employees.
