Call for proposals: €4.7 million to support the Peace Process in the Middle East

The European Commission has published a restricted call for proposals worth €4.7 million under the EU Partnership for Peace Programme (Middle East Peace Projects), which aims to help create the conditions for the peace process to advance and provide a solid foundation within society for a just and lasting peace in the Middle East.  The reference of the call is EuropeAid/135-256/L/ACT/PMO.
 
The programme seeks to:
  • promote civil society peace building and conflict transformation actions, via initiatives which are likely to have an impact on people’s everyday lives.
  • support practical actions aiming at rebuilding mutual trust through reconciliation, building capacity for non-violent approaches to conflict resolution, empowering marginalized parties and launching joint development policies and strategies.
  • strengthen direct civil society relationships and co-operation based on equality and reciprocity between Palestinians and Israelis, including the Arab minority in Israel.
 
All actions, regardless of the priority, must be implemented in Palestine and/or Israel and/or Jordan. Specific activities, within the scope of the action and if duly justified, can be implemented also in EU Members States, Europe at large, as well as in the other ENPI South countries.
 
The programme includes two lots under which actions must address at least one of the priorities:
 
·      Lot 1 (€3.2 Million) :
-       Priority 1: Peace as negotiated political resolutions
-       Priority 2: Peace as a value: education for peace
 
·      Lot 2 (€1.5 Million) : Peace as joint efforts towards development
 
The initial planned duration of an action may not be lower than 12 months nor exceed 36 months. Grants requested under this Call for Proposals must fall between a minimum of €250,000 and a maximum of €500,000.
 
The deadline for submission of concept notes is 24 February 2014 at 16:00 local time.
