Ever since its foundation in the year 2000, a main aim of Kopin is to network with other NGOs so as to share experiences and expertise with a focus on Development Cooperation and Development Education and to build a strong position in advocating for fair North-South relations that have a focus on the Southern, rights-based perspective.
Kopin is the founding organisation of The National Platform of Maltese NGDOs, (today called SKOP), which it coordinated until May 2006. Kopin is also a member of the Maltese Forum for Justice and Cooperation (FJC). It actively engages in CONCORD and SKOP working groups and collaborates with networks like TRIALOG and EUROSTEP.
The organisation has implemented a number of projects in the fields of North-South Collaboration, such as Global Action Schools (GAS), Building Unity Through Diversity (BUTD) and a project on “Strengthening the Capacity of Civil Society in Malta, Cyprus and Slovenia to engage effectively in Dialogue with the European Institutions over Sustainable Livelihood in the Mediterranean and the Barcelona Process”. Kopin’s current projects are a "Global Action Schools 2 Communities" (S2C) and a policy research project on Development Issues in Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia (Presidency Fund).
