Background

The Center for Innovations in Education (CIE) is a public association established in Azerbaijan in 2004.  Its mission is to promote every child’s right to quality education through social inclusion, excellence in teaching, and active parent involvement.  As part of its mission, CIE advocates for civic education, reforms in early childhood education, and improved education for children with disabilities and promotes ongoing professional development for teachers, parents, and university faculty.

Street Law, Inc.. worked with CIE’s Ms. Elmina Kazimzade, Open Society Institute staff, and Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Education to develop an eighth grade civics curriculum as part of the Democracy Education Exchange Project (DEEP).

One of the initial sites in the Deliberating in a Democracy (DID) program was CIE.  Under the leadership of Ms. Kazimzade, teachers from eight schools across Azerbaijan were trained to deliver the DID program to their students.  Visit the Azerbaijan section of the Deliberating in a Democracy web site to learn more.
