Régions concernées par cette opportunité: Tunisie

1 | Context and justification: 

The exacerbation of the armed conflict in Libya in the recent years has exposed the civilian population to the atrocities of war with direct consequences on their safety. The country’s fragile political and security environment, and the absence of the rule of law constitute a complex environment exposing civilians in general and human rights defenders in particular to violence, ill-treatment and torture.

In this context, the role of Libyan civil society has been limited and their action on the ground puts them at risk. Add to this, the lack of awareness-raising and mobilization campaigns among the general public of the severe repercussions of torture on establishing the rule of law and the stability in the country is one of the major factors hindering support for victims at the local level. Major reform projects are yet to come, and more specifically with regard to the fight against torture and impunity in Libya. For this reasons, awareness-raising actions must send a clear and strong message to the general public.

2 | Objective of the call for proposals: 

The objective of this proposed call is to support grassroots CSOs and initiatives inside Libya to raise awareness about torture and human rights violations.

3 | Supported activities:  

The proposal should be about torture issues inside Libya with the aim of raising awareness about torture and human rights violations.

Activities such as:

  • A research paper, 
  • An investigative report, 
  • A series of newspaper articles,
  • A series of radio or television programs,
  • A novel,
  • A short film,
  • A song, 
  • Any other artistic project.

The request must be based on a detailed proposal with a specific objective that reflects the relevance of the project. The request must be subject to good planning of actions in terms of duration, impact and budget.

More specifically, the eligibility criteria are as follows:

  • The relevance of the project with regard to the local context and the objective of the call;
  • The potential impact on the fight against torture;
  • The sustainability of the action;
  • The capacity of the campaign leader to implement it (action plan and clear methodology for project management);
