European Grant for Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and support for Human Rights Defenders

The European Commission has launched the Call for Proposals under the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) to enhance the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms in countries and situations where they are most at risk and where human rights defenders and civil society organisations work under severe constraints and are most under pressure

The specific objective of this call is to provide direct support and protection to human rights defenders and to reinforce their capacities to do their work in the short and long-term, as well as to provide tangible support and means of action to local civil society in the promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms in some of the world’s most difficult, dangerous and unpredictable political situations and/or where they are the most vulnerable and threatened.

For the purpose of this call for proposals, the concept “most at risk” refers to regions, countries and situations characterised by a serious lack of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms; where human rights and fundamental freedoms are systematically violated; where there exists high risk to human security making it difficult for civil society and human rights defenders to operate, and where there is little or no room for political pluralism.

This call for proposals has three lots:

The Lot 1 targets actions taking place in one single country. They shall aim at enhancing respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms and at supporting human rights defenders either in countries or in situations where they are the most at risk.

The Lot 2 targets global and/or regional actions aiming at enhancing respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms and at supporting human rights defenders taking place either in countries or in situations where they are the most at risk.

The Lot 3 targets actions aiming at providing local civil society and human rights defenders with the technical tools and knowledge to circumvent cyber-censorship and to improve their digital security in those countries where Internet and digital communications are the object of surveillance, tracking, filtering or blocking or where digital communications are purportedly impaired.

As this is a restricted call for proposals, the European Commission is seeking only concept notes initially. Full proposals will be requested after reviewing and shortlisting the concept notes. The deadline to submit concept notes is 20 July 2012. For more information, visit this link.

    Dear Sir,
    I with my organisation named National Peace Unison(India)is working for the promotion of human rights in our state(Specially in our region)Odisha with the collaberation of Youth for Human Rights International(YHRI)South Asia.
    The aim of this organisation is to promote the human rights education all over the world,In this contest we are organising the different seminars/workshop and defferent events relating to human rights in school colleges,and youth clubs and in different societies.

    Gradually after this effords people and the students of this region are comming to understand the value of human rights and how it has the inportancies in the common life.

    But it has no any funding sourses to organise the events.So if we get this priviliges we would be able to cover more and more area.

    Thanking You
    With best regards

    EC Grants for Human Rights call for concept not is okey, but EC funding mechanism for small NGOs with consistent funding opportunity can not always benefit. PADOR is one of unfair arithematic EC set to deliberately side local NGO who wanted to participate for. And the EC fund only benefit International NGOs becuase the do fulfil the arithematic or criteria set by the EC Grant Unit. This just because all INGOs get their supports consistently from their government annually therefore can not have a gap of funding each year.
    I writing this ti tell EC Grant decider that there are tall people and short ones to surviving in this world and also the most strongest people and very weakest ones do breath in “God’s Oxygen” together with no discrimination. So please EC funds will continue but will never have any impact on the community targeted, simply because EC Grant start immediately with violating the Human Rights of NGOS/Communities who wanted also to contribute in decision making for themselvest too. If EC Grant Department is serious and has a good intension to promote Human Rights of everybody, they let them review their grant making strategy openly involving the other stakeholders/beneficiaries they are claiming to empower or promote their Human Rights.

  16. we were interested to apply for this Grant.
