CEİD Hakkında

Besides projects seeking to have rights-based monitoring grasped by women’s organizations in particular and to enhance the capacity of these organizations in monitoring, the CEID also keeps undertaking projects for mainstreaming gender equality in various fields like child, early and forced marriages.

Established in 2011, Association for Monitoring Gender Equality (CEID) is an organization actively involved in effective, systematic, and sustained monitoring of all kinds of activities carried out in relation to gender equality in Turkey.

The CEID brings together experts active in various fields, institutions, and civil society organizations in issues related to gender equality.  The CEID conducts its activities to encourage the development of public policies for gender equality, improve the effectiveness and widen the coverage of existing policies and thus contribute to the mainstreaming of gender equality.

Starting from its establishment, the CEID has successfully completed the following projects :
  • Mechanism in Combating Violence against Women: Constructive Monitoring Project,
  • Rights-Based Monitoring in Turkey: Project for Civil Mapping Initiatives and Strengthening Gender Perspective in Monitoring,
  • Enhancement of Participatory Democracy in Turkey: Gender Equality Monitoring Project Phase I and Phase II,

  • Lastly, the third phase of the Enhancement of Participatory Democracy in Turkey: Monitoring Gender Equality (CEIDizler) Project, funded by the European Union, started in September 2023.
