The British High Commission (BHC) welcomes proposals that will focus on at least one of the following themes. There is no requirement for projects to work on more than one theme.

Strengthening civil society working towards defending human rights:

  • initiatives to enhance the capacity, including technical and legal expertise, of CSOs and human rights defenders who advocate for, report on, and work towards the protection of human rights and accountability for violations
  • formulating advocacy and public awareness tools to share analyses and recommendations on emblematic human rights issues with key stakeholders
  • initiatives to boost collaborative and coordinated advocacy, including between and within grassroots, regional and Colombo-based organisations

Creating space for memorialisation:

  • targeted interventions to facilitate dialogue among key stakeholders on the importance of creating space for memorialisation
  • initiatives to document, archive and share memory and oral history relating to politically turbulent periods
  • creating public awareness tools on the significance of memorialisation towards achieving reconciliation and transitional justice
