The specific objectives of this Call for Proposals are: 
  • Promoting a favourable environment for civil society organisations and the promotion of human rights, in particular by fostering human rights education and respect for the rule of law and international standards, supporting human rights defenders and organisations, safeguarding freedom of association and freedom of expression, fighting against xenophobia, racism, and discrimination on the basis of religion or belief, and any form of hate speech; 
  • Advancing the rights of vulnerable minorities or groups within Israel, in particular the Arab minority and refugees/asylum seekers; 
  • Respect for international humanitarian law and human rights in the occupied Palestinian Territory, including the rights of the children in armed conflicts; 
The deadline for the submission of applications is 14 May 2012, at 16:00 local time.
