One of the priorities of the democratization of the public life is the development of the non-governmental sector. "
According to director of the "Resource Center", the vast majority of the NGOs have difficulties in realizing their goals.
"One of the reasons is the lack of comprehensive and targeted state support to non-governmental sector - said Kozaeva. - In addition, mechanisms of interaction and cooperation between the state bodies and the NGOs are not enough developed. "
She has noted that to date, it`s necessary to develop a comprehensive public policy support to the NGOs.
"The adoption of the concept involves improving the legal framework, the introduction of changes and amendments to some normative legal acts - said Kozaeva. - Speaking of the democratic development of our Republic, we must strive to build democratic institutions. This segment of the civil society must exist and it must be revived. "
