Civil Society and the EU membership are one of the subjects discussed by political and intellectual groups in Turkey. In today’s Turkey, where significant steps are being taken in the process of accession to the European Union, the importance of the effects of non-governmental organizations on Turkey’s democratization is enormous. European Union attributes great significance to civic society and non-governmental organizations in the development of participatory democracy in Turkey. It is known that European Union demonstrates its enthusiasm in this regard through funding or other support mechanisms. In this study, Turkey’s experiments in the process of democratization and the roles the non-governmental organizations have played in this process will be investigated. On the other hand, what roles non-governmental organizations have assumed in order to establish participatory democracy, the projects such institutions have implemented and the support the European Union has given in this regard will be studied.

Społeczeństwo obywatelskie i członkostwo w Unii Europejskiej są obecnie tematami często dyskutowanymi w tureckich kręgach politycznych i intelektualnych. W dzisiejszej Turcji, w której podejmowane są znaczące kroki na drodze akcesji do Unii Europejskiej, niezwykle ważny jest wpływ organizacji pozarządowych na rozwój demokracji. Także Unia Europejska przypisuje duże znaczenie społeczeństwu obywatelskiemu i organizacjom pozarządowym w rozwoju demokracji uczestniczącej w Turcji. Demonstrowane jest to poprzez środki pomocowe i inne mechanizmy wspierające. W artykule przedstawiono tureckie doświadczenia związane z procesem demokratyzacji oraz rolę, jaką odgrywają w nim organizacje pozarządowe. Zbadano postawę, jaką te organizacje przyjęły w celu ustanowienia w Turcji demokracji uczestniczącej, pokazano wdrożone projekty przygotowane przy wsparciu Unii Europejskiej.
