European Call for Proposals

Children awareness of their rights in judicial proceedings

The Call for Proposals JUST/2014/JPPI/AG/CHIL “Action grants to raise the awareness of children with regard to their rights in judicial proceedings” has been published by the European Commission, Directorate-General Justice.

 

The “Action grants to raise the awareness of children with regard to their rights in judicial proceedings” call aims to to co-fund transnational projects that aim to raise the awareness of children with regard to their rights in judicial proceedings. This call for proposals for action grants is based on the 2014 annual work programme of the Pilot Project “Raising awareness of children to be aware of their rights in judicial procedures”.

 

The purpose of the current “Action grants to raise the awareness of children with regard to their rights in judicial proceedings” call is to complement the efforts of the EU in the area of rights of the child. Duplications of already existing initiatives will not be funded.

 

The proposals under the “Action grants to raise the awareness of children with regard to their rights in judicial proceedings” call should include interactive activities (such as mock trials/moot courts) that allow secondary school students or assimilated to understand their rights, with some degree of customisation for each participating country to take account of the national context, and taking account of relevant EU legislation and the Council of Europe Guidelines on child-friendly justice. Projects should enable children to experience the phases of mock criminal, civil or administrative cases, and improve their understanding of the various roles and responsibilities (e.g. child subject to or party to proceedings, witness, guardian, parent, lawyer, prosecutor, judge, social worker, police officer, etc.) as well as their own rights.

 

To be eligible applicants and partners of the current “Action grants to raise the awareness of children with regard to their rights in judicial proceedings” call must comply with the following requirements:

- Legal status: Applicants and partners must be legally constituted public or private organisations, or international organisations. Natural persons (private individuals) are not allowed to submit applications.

- Non-profit: The applicant must be non-profit-oriented. This will be assessed on the basis of the statutes of the organisation, in particular whether those allow for the possibility to distribute profit to members/shareholders. Bodies and organisations which are profit-oriented shall have access to grants only as partners.

- Eligible country: Applicant and partners must be legally established in an EU Member State. This is not applicable for International organisations.

 

 

The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of the action is estimated at EUR 700 000 maximum. The requested grant should not be higher than EUR 350.000 or lower than EUR 75.000,. The aim is to be able to co-fund at least two transnational projects. The initial duration of the projects should not exceed 24 months. The financial contribution from the Commission cannot exceed 80 % of the total eligible costs. The Commission reserves the right not to distribute all the funds available.

 

The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current “tion grants to raise the awareness of children with regard to their rights in judicial proceedings” call for proposals is 11 December 2014.
