Europe: Funds to combat the stigmatisation of immigrants

Political discourses against immigrants by extremist or populist movements exacerbate xenophobia, intolerance and discriminations, threaten the cohesion of EU societies and hamper integration. The Europe for Citizens programme which regularly supports Civil Society Projects has opened a call for activities that combat stigmatisation of immigrants, foreigners and ethnic minorities.Projects aiming to build counter narratives to foster intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding are also eligible. 

All projects shall help overcome stereotypes about immigrants by deconstructing past and present processes of stigmatisation. They shall also promote tolerance, respect of common values and counter narratives with a more accurate representation of third-country nationals.

Applicants must be either non-profit organisations with legal personality or public bodies. They must be established in one of the countries participating to the Programme, i.e the 28 EU Member States as well as Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia. At  least two Member States must be involved. 

The total budget earmarked for Civil Society Projects under this call for proposals is estimated at EUR 3.5 million. The deadline for the submission of applications is 1 March 2018.
