The European Commission under the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) has launched this call for proposals to provide funding support for civil society in its actions to fight impunity in the broad sense.
The specific objectives of this Call for Proposals are two-fold:
1. Civil society actions against torture, and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment
2. Civil society actions promoting the effective functioning of the International Criminal Court and the Rome Statute system
There are two lots under this call for proposals:
Lot (1) Civil society actions against torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment
Actions under this lot will provide support to civil society projects contributing to making the absolute prohibition of torture a reality for all. It ultimately aims at ensuring accountability for torture and other ill treatment in third countries.
Lot (2) Civil society actions promoting the effective functioning of the International Criminal Court and the Rome Statute system
The International Criminal Court for the purpose of preventing and curbing the commission of the serious crimes falling within its jurisdiction is an essential means of promoting respect for international humanitarian law and human rights.
Proposed actions should fully take on board the decisions made at the Review Conference of the Rome Statute (Kampala, 2010) and at the Assembly of State Parties.
This call is initially seeking only concept notes from applicants. Review of concept notes will shortlist organizations to submit more detailed proposals.
The deadline to submit proposals is 20 July 2012. For more information, visit this link.
