The European Union has published a global call for proposals for "Intercultural Dialogue and Culture". The deadline for submission of the concept notes is 16 May 2017 at 16h Brussels time via PROSPECT, the EU's online system for submission of applications for calls for proposals under direct management.
The programme is developed within the Global Public Goods and Challenges 2014-2020 programme. The main objective is to promote intercultural dialogue, cultural diversity and respect for equal dignity. The programme includes two lots. The first one aims at actions that strengthen cultural pluralism and intercultural understanding (aspects related to religion or belief) and the second lot targets actions that enhance dialogue, social inclusion, skills development and social cohesion using cultural means.
The focus is on vulnerable and disadvantaged populations such as persons belonging to minorities, migrants, women, girls and disabled.
Priority will be given to actions whose location is in the following countries: Eritrea, Burundi, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Yemen, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, and the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Please note that:
the participation of co-applicants is obligatory for this call for proposals;
partnerships between the lead applicant and co-applicant(s) must include at least two co-applicants;
at least one country where the action will take place must be represented in the partnership by at least one local organisation;
the actions related must take place in at least two countries of the OECD/DAC list of ODA recipients.
