Call for bids: 2016/17 Magna Carta Fund for Human Rights and Democracy
The British Embassy is pleased to announce that we are now accepting bids for new project concepts for Cambodia under the FCO’s Magna Carta Fund for Human Rights and Democracy.
Magna Carta Fund for Human Rights and Democracy
The Magna Carta Fund for Human Rights and Democracy, previously known as The Human Rights and Democracy Programme, is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s strategic programme dedicated to the UK’s global human rights and democracy work.
Through targeted projects overseas, it supports the promotion and protection of human rights, democracy and the rule of law. It aims to further British interests by supporting high-impact projects which promote institution-building, target universal issues and the underlying causes of human rights problems.
The programme invites proposals that support:
- Democratic values and the rule of law;
- The rules-based international order; and
- Human rights for a stable world
2016-17 bidding round in Cambodia
We are looking for creative and original project ideas, for innovative activities that will have the greatest impact on improving human rights in Cambodia.
We are less interested in proposals which focus purely on seminars, workshops or the production of research reports as ends in themselves. Instead, proposals should include action-oriented ideas which will bring about concrete outcomes.
