The specific objectives of this call for proposals are to support civil society and human rights defenders working outside the EU in five key areas of human rights corresponding to the five recurring lots of 2014-2017 EIDHR global calls for proposals:

  • Lot 1: Supporting Human Rights Defenders in the area of land-related rights, indigenous peoples, in the context of inter alia 'land grabbing' and climate change.
  • Lot 2: Fighting against extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances.
  • Lot 3: Combating forced labour and modern slavery.
  • Lot 4: Promoting and supporting the rights of persons with disabilities.
  • Lot 5: Supporting freedom of religion or belief.

Guidelines and all the relevant documents can be found on the following web page: https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/europeaid/online-services/index.cfm?do=publi.welcome&nbPubliList=15&orderby=upd&orderbyad=Desc&searchtype=RS&aofr=155232.

Deadline for submission of concept notes is on 9 November 2017 at 16:00 (Brussels date and time). In case of any discrepancy between the language versions of this call, the English version will prevail.  This is a restricted call for proposals. In the first instance, only concept notes (Annex A.1) must be submitted for evaluation. Thereafter, lead applicants who have been pre-selected will be invited to submit a full application. After the evaluation of the full applications, an eligibility check will be performed for those which have been provisionally selected. Eligibility will be checked on the basis of the supporting documents requested by the Contracting Authority and the signed ‘declaration by the lead applicant’ sent together with the full application.
