Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor Request for Proposals: Democracy, Human Rights, and Rule of Law in Europe and Eurasia (Belarus and Ukraine)
The Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL) announces a Request for Proposals from organizations interested in submitting proposals for projects that promote democracy, human rights, and rule of law in Europe and Eurasia.
Requested Proposal Program Objectives:
Increasing Transparency and Countering Corruption (approximately $500,000 available): DRL’s goal in Ukraine is to continue building the capacity of civil society and the media to advocate for reforms that target corruption and increase government transparency, as well as to hold the new government accountable for implementing anti-corruption measures. The project will capitalize on public activism, civic entrepreneurship, and the opportunities triggered by the Euromaidan protests that captured the imaginations of Ukraine’s activists and civil society to genuinely combat corruption. Proposals may focus on assisting civil society to work with the new government to counter specific types of corruption or corruption in particular social spheres, such as politics, religion, education, health care, and law enforcement. Proposals could also build bridges between journalists and anti-corruption activists by expanding the capacity of journalists, bloggers, and/or civil society to effectively publicize anti-corruption reforms and to hold the government accountable on the local, regional, or national levels using new and traditional media.
