An Evaluation of business oriented non-governmental organizations (Bongo's) "A case study of BTC project community investment and development programs

Çetin, Başak
The aim of this study is to analyze the partnerships of Non – Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Private Sector and also their relations with Local Institutions. Within this context, we ask certain questions. Are the NGOs really non – profit organizations? Does Business Sector involve in the Social Development Projects for the community or for their own interests? This study tries to answer these questions in the case of Community Investment Program and Regional Sustainable Development Program of the Baku – Tbilisi – Ceyhan (BTC) crude oil pipeline implemented by an energy company with unusual partners and discusses its impacts on the stakeholders of the project, local governments and societies. This study proposes an analytical framework for the changing role, partners and responsibilities of the private sector and the local governments and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s).
