Argüden Governance Academy Foundation

Argüden Governance Academy is dedicated to improve governance quality in public, non-profit, private, and international organizations to create sustainable value for institutions and society.

We envision a world where institutions and society work together to create a more sustainable and inclusive future. We bring together world-class expertise, adopt a holistic view of governance across institutions, and form partnerships to improve quality of life for current and future generations.

To achieve our mission, our programs aim to:

  • Improve awareness of the role of good governance for sustainable and inclusive development by research, dissemination of successful examples and awards;
  • Create a knowledge platform to enable representatives of government, civil society, and business to be informed about the recent global developments on governance through training programs, seminars, and peer to peer learning;
  • Deploy good governance both locally and globally as a center of excellence and a reference point;
  • Cooperate with other similar initiatives both locally and globally through joint projects to raise the understanding of the key role of good governance to improve quality of life and sustainability of the planet.

The Academy started its operations under the aegis of Boğaziçi University Foundation and transformed into an independent Foundation in its 5th year.
