Founded in 1997, the Foundation for the Research of Societal Problems (TOSAM) is a small Turkish nongovernmental organization in Ankara with the aim of assisting the development of Turkish democracy by increasing mutual understanding and dialogue between Turks and Kurds. TOSAM has a wide range of activities, including meetings, reports, a radio talk show and publication of a quarterly newsletter. PRIO’s involvement with TOSAM consists in assisting TOSAM in the raising and accounting for funds – intended to cover some core and some project costs – from the Norwegian Foreign Ministry. PRIO Director Dan Smith is Chairman of the international advisory board of TOSAM.
