Deadline: 30 August 2017
The Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA) has announced the Call for Proposals for its continuing work on combatting illicit financial flows. Through research, grant-making and advocacy under its Economic and Social Justice cluster, OSISA will support organisations and groups pressuring states to develop pro-poor economic policies.
This will include support to public participation in the development of policy frameworks that reduce inequality, mobilisation and advocacy against illicit financial flows. In this regard, OSISA seeks proposals that will monitor and advocate against illicit financial flows and push for better regulation and policy reforms to address the use and complicity of tax havens, tax evasion and illicit transfers.
Total project costs must be between USD 10,000 to USD 100,000.
Proposals to be considered for funding will focus on:
- Mobilizing the general population to engage on the issues of tax justice and ending illicit financial flows;
- Raising public awareness to push for changes to a financial system that is complicit in allowing billions of dollars to leave the African continent every single year;
- Producing and disseminating research and knowledge to understand better the power relations and political economy drivers of illicit flows and corruption;
- Supporting peer-to-peer dialogue, policy development and shared technical expertise for reform;
- Provide policy options and recommendations to strengthen the regulatory framework around illicit flows; and
- Use data-driven stories that utilize the tools of the trade — data visualizations, and interactive maps/graphics to explain and reveal new perspectives on illicit financial flows
Only proposals from countries mentioned below will be considered.
