Peace-building Partnerships – Opportunities for Non-Governmental Organisations

Peace-building Partnerships – Opportunities for Non-Governmental Organisations

The European Commission has launched a Call for Proposals under the new Instrument for Stability (Regulation (EC) 1717/2006), which is intended to fund initiatives proposed by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in the peace-building sector. These initiatives must be designed to reinforce cooperation with organisations from civil society by funding Round tables enabling them to make their expertise available to EU institutions. The aim is to achieve concrete improvements in their crisis response capacity, early warning systems and conflict prevention strategies. The first deadline for submitting proposals is 14 July 2008. In view of the nature of this Call for Proposals, and especially the specific issues and priorities covered, which may change over the next few months, the Commission has also set a second deadline of 13 January 2009.
