The Council of Europe, as part of its EU-funded Partnership for Good Governance, has launched a call for proposals to co-fund national and local projects in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Moldova and Ukraine, focused on supporting victims of discrimination, hate speech and hate crimes, particularly from vulnerable groups.
The grants to civil society organisations will be disbursed under the framework of the joint EU-CoE Partnership for Good Governance and its regional project ‘Strengthening access to justice through non-judicial redress mechanisms for victims of discrimination, hate speech and hate crimes in the Eastern Partnership countries’.
Projects may include activities such as capacity building, development of awareness raising or information products, direct assistance to victims of discrimination, hate speech or hate crimes, community actions, and so on. Projects are encouraged to have a gender dimension, for example through engagement with women from vulnerable communities.
The Council of Europe intends to award up to five grants of a maximum amount of €19,000 each.
The deadline for the submission of applications is 3 October.
