Civil Society, Culture and Development

The Civil Society, Culture and Development department was created in 1992. Their goals are to produce and spread knowledge on the vast group of organizations that conform both Civil Society and Social Economy, thru programs and projects designed to improve the performance of these institutions.

In order to achieve this, it combines different kinds of activities such as research, technical assistance, postgraduate formation, training programs and impact evaluation.
