Instrument of Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) Call CSF FPA 132438

The purpose of the 2012 open call for proposals 'Support to regional thematic networks - Framework Partnership Agreements and associated Implementation Grants' is to achieve: 'A more dynamic civil society actively participating in public debate on democracy, human rights, social inclusion and the rule of law and with capacity to influence policy and decision making processes.'.

As a result of this call for proposals the European Commission will enter into partnership with regional networks of CSOs to pursue shared objectives regarding good governance and the fulfilment of the political criteria for EU accession. The partnerships will strengthen CSO dialogue and the development of knowledge and experience. By bringing together representatives from different organisations in the Western Balkans, Turkey and EU, the programme will enhance CSO cooperation and understanding beyond regional and national levels. This call includes 18 projects.

Instrument of Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) Call 128286

The fight against corruption, organised crime and trafficking remains one of the most urgent and complex issues with broad implications for stability, democratisation and/or the rule of law in the region. It requires a joint and multidisciplinary approach and a coalition involving different groups of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), social authorities, law enforcement and migration authorities.

The main objective of this call and the selected projects is to promote the contribution of CSOs to bring about change in existing regional mechanisms and to advocate the alignment of legislation and enforcement of laws with the EU acquis communautaire. This call includes nine projects.
