1) Objective

The latest suspensions of the right to asylum in multiple Member States in the framework of Covid-19 protection measures show once more that European asylum politics and practice move fast, especially in times of emergency. The design of EU asylum policies as well as their implementation and translation (or lack thereof) into national, bilateral, regional and local policies and practices have direct impact on the lives of people who seek international protection.

Through this Call for Proposals, EPIM aims to support (transnational) partnerships of civil society organisations active at EU, national, bilateral, regional and/or local levels. The support is for their efforts to seize (urgent) opportunities to advise European asylum policies and practices. In light of existing and future EU asylum law, policies, frameworks and human rights standards, projects should aim to:

  • promote feasible (evidence-based) alternatives; and/or
  • put forward thought-provoking ideas, and/or
  • react to policy proposals and practices to safeguard the right to asylum and prevent backtracking.

2) Eligibility

Applicants must be non-profit and non-governmental organisations registered in the European Union or in the United Kingdom. Non-profit organisations active at EU, national, bilateral, regional and/or local levels are eligible for this call for proposals. Non-EU based non-profit organisations can apply as partners.

3) Location

Projects should be implemented in the European Union. Additionally, projects implemented in non-EU countries (e.g. Turkey, UK) could also be considered eligible if of EU relevance.

4) Budget

This is a rolling Call for Proposals: eligible civil society organisations are invited to submit concept notes anytime for a maximum budget of 40,000 EUR and a maximum duration of 18 months.

5) Application

Applications can be submitted anytime. Concept notes can be submitted online at https://nef-europe.optimytool.com/en/ and will be reviewed every 3 months starting from 4 May 2020.
