EU Cal: EIDHR Country Based Support Scheme (CBSS) Turkey Programme

The European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights (EIDHR) is a European Union programme that aims to promote democracy and human rights worldwide through support to civil society initiatives. The EIDHR was adopted by the European Parliament and the Council in March 2014 (Regulation No. 235/2014) for the period 2014-2020 by replacing and building upon the EIDHR (2006-2013) and European Initiative for Democracy and Human Rights (2000-2006).

This instrument is designed to support civil society to become an effective force for political reform and defence of human rights. The EIDHR is global in scope.

The EIDHR regulation defines five main objectives:
1) Support to Human Rights and Human Rights Defenders in situations where they are most at risk;
2) Support to other EU Human Rights Priorities with main focus on protecting human dignity including abolition of the death penalty, eradication of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, support to a comprehensive approach to rehabilitation and prevention activities, protection and promotion of children's rights, protection of women's rights, fighting discrimination in all its forms, fighting against impunity, promotion and protection of freedom of religion or belief, promotion of economic, social and cultural rights, promotion of the respect for international humanitarian law;
3) Support to Democracy;
4) Support to EU Election Observation;
5) Support to targeted key actors and processes, including international and regional human rights instruments and mechanisms.
EIDHR is also designed to complement various other tools for implementing the Union policies relating to democracy and human rights.  In the context of Turkey, EIDHR seeks to address evolving and dynamic needs in the field taking into account recent development in the EU as well as to complement other Union Instruments namely Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA).  

The global objective of this call for proposals is to contribute, through supporting civil society organisations, to the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms and to contribute to the strengthening of the international framework for the promotion and protection of human rights, justice and the rule of law.
