- Prevention of torture and other forms of ill-treatment, generally aiming at preventing the occurrence of torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. Particular attention will be placed on the effective implementation of all aspects of the United Nations Convention against Torture (UNCAT), as well as its Optional Protocol, and all other applicable international and regional norms and standards; their incorporation in national legislation and effective implementation; advocacy for setting up anti-torture safeguards, the establishment and functioning of domestic or international preventive or monitoring mechanisms; monitoring, advocacy and reporting by NGOs, training sessions for, sensitization and information campaigns in view of enhancing investigation of torture allegations, against amnesty clauses for torture perpetrators and increasing their prosecution of perpetrators including non-state actors, mobilizing public support against torture, etc.; and
- Accountability for torture and other ill treatment, aiming at restoring the victim’s right to remedy and reparation and to fight impunity by holding the torture perpetrators accountable. These include provision of direct legal support to torture survivors and their families; support to local lawyers and organizations assisting them; case work; training sessions for lawyers and health staff to increase their skills in documenting torture and providing solid forensic evidence of torture; to analyze the root causes for lack of accountability, etc.; and
- Support for rehabilitation of victims of torture, aiming at rebuilding, in third countries, the victim’s and/or his/her family’s lives and restoring his/her right to remedy and reparation. Activities should foresee a comprehensive approach to rehabilitation; providing psychological, medical, social services to direct/indirect torture victims. Activities in this area should seek to strengthen local professional capacity and networking and enhance the sustainability of existing health services.
- The maximum amount the applicants can request under their project proposals budget will not exceed 6.000 euro per one project (each joint sub-grant – minimum 4.000 euro and maximum 6.000 euro without co-financing).
- Only in exceptional cases, the Institute for Democracy will examine the possibility to fund a project with up to 7.000 euro.
- It is recommended to the NGO/NGOs to find a co-financing. The existence of a co-financing will be a significant advantage in the selection process.
